10-28-2016; Kirkwood, (Binghamton) New York at 5 Star Equipment, Inc... Loaded a Deere 624K wheel loader up for a customer of ours headed to Merrimack, New Hampshire. This is the second move for this customer this season.
12-3-2016; Cat 525 grapple skidder and John Deere 653 feller buncher moved from one job to the other in southern Vermont for our logger customer. Staged to start cutting Monday morning now.
As you can see, there's typically no shortage of things for us to do. I think being reliable, honest and up front from the beginning to end is what has kept us going and will continue well into the future.
Above; South Burlington, Vermont. Loading several loads of non-running equipment and hauled to Port of Rennselaer, NY for scrap which was a shame for some of the unfortunate pieces here. August 7th through the 10th 2017.

7-17-2017; Westerlo, NY loaded a JD combine with corn head attached, and the grain head on the rollback truck and we relocated this to another farmer in Berlin, Vermont this day. Father and son rigging and transporting made for a great day this particular day.
12-2-2016; Carried a special drilling cage to drill into the face of the stone walls to anchor retaining fencing to hold back debris from falling. 2 men stand inside the cage drilling while suspended 200 feet above the Genesee River with this specially designed "ringer" crane with 300 ft. of stick, 300 ton capacity in Hunt, NY. Replacing this 1875 vintage trestle with a new one for Norfolk Southern Railroad.
Bronx, New York Friday 2-3-2017; Delivered and helped install these 3 LED display signs here on an Army Recruiting Office on East Fordham Rd. above the Grand Concourse, hired by the manufacturers of the signs. The same company has several LED displays down in Times Square, the ones you see on TV morning news shows, New Years Eve celebrations, etc...
I was fortunate enough to have this opportunity to be part of this project, and assist in the making of a little history at the same time. Found a deli 300 ft. from the spot where I was staged and had a nice, delicious NEW YORK egg "sangwich" and a coffee before we started. Then after the signs were hung, the contractor graciously treated me to an authentic New York pizza lunch, and I had a "slice" before departing back to New England. A very good day working with the crew at Fiberdyne Labs, Inc. and the contractor Vic Martinez on this project! √√√
Above: Oversize load from New Holland, Pa. to Harvard University in Boston, Mass.

Dimensions were 11' wide, 14' 10" high, overall length was 77' 7" long. Quite a project...
Watching precious older trucks like this beautiful 1969 Ford F950 Super Duty diesel get scrapped is never fun to us...we were mournful of this particular gem because of it's excellent condition. We hated to see this go to scrap.
Once unloaded, we stacked the rollback up on the lowbed to save fuel and wear and tear, and headed home from Berlin, Vermont that evening. (7-17-2017)
7-8-2016 Fort Dix/Mc Guire Air Force Base. Loading a cargo trailer and 8 60K BTU portable a/c units headed for Cortland, NY to set up a temporary hospital clinic that the Pentagon developed a program with to offer free care to ALL in need, while continuing training for staff in a friendly environment rather than in the hostile, uncomfortable regions that they operate in daily currently in the middle east. This is a good thing. They set up portable tent buildings and containers equipped as hospital facilites at schools in various locations 2 weeks at a time, and everything from dental care to free animal care is offered to low income or non insured people.
Loaded this 1975 Brockway 759 model triaxle in Lynn Lake, Pa. on the W.Va. border on 8-12-2016 and carried it up to Cortland, NY to the annual Brockway show on 8-13-2016 to display for the day...then on to W. Granville, NY to it's new retirement home.
