Stop by to see our new mini!
Don't laugh! This machine is more useful than it looks. Once you see what it can do, and where it can go, you will be finding projects perfect for this little workhorse. This machine is designed to fit through gates and doorways as narrow as 2'-6" wide. Once at your project the tracks adjust out to 2'-10" for added stability. Weighing in at just under 2000 lbs. it is easy to transport on a small tilt trailer or a "landscaper" trailer with a walk-up ramp.
This is brand new 2013 model for our rental fleet. It features a 2 cylinder 8.4 hp Komatsu diesel engine. This gives plenty of power to work the 14" bucket to make short work of your projects. The boom gives you 9'-4" of reach from the center point at the ground level, and a maximum dig depth of 4'-11". The bucket will dump to a height of 6'-6". The ROPS system allows access through 7' high openings, althought the bar can fold to get through as short as 5'-8" high openings. The rubber tracks can work on various surfaces and only exert 4 psi in ground pressure.
Stop by or call to get started on your "honey-do" list today. This amazing little machine might be just the ticket!

Mobile WebsiteDominic's Equipment has been slowly moving in the direction of making a mobile version of the website available. At this time, we have a rough optimized version of the website available for your use. The benefit of this mobile site is the ability to load pages quicker with less available internet speeds / phone service. One key issue uncovered with the current mobile layout is when using the mobile view, if the option of switching to normal view is used, there is no easy way to switch back to mobile view afterwards (reloading the homepage does not resolve this issue.) The fix for this is to clear cookies, data, and history of Dominics website. This is different pending on what phone you have, so stating how to do this is not simple enough to state in this article; however, you can easily find this information out by googling how to clear cookies and history for your phone. This will enable your phone to use the mobile version of the webpage again.
We thank you for your patience with our mobile page. and hope that it will benefit you in the future.
Mulching is a time consuming practice that will often seem like a chore each year. It is tedious, costs money, and can seem fairly pointless. Understanding why mulching is important may help with knowing that this practice is necessary each year while adding enjoyment knowing that mulching will make your life and your plants lives more enjoyable.
Imagine a forest. When walking through it during the spring, one can notice that the ground is covered with leaves, bark, amongst other organic material. This organic material is the forests natural mulching system that has culminated over a vast period of time.
Within the realm of our own landscaping, trees are typically taken out of their natural environment and displaced into our own preferred settings. This change of environment for the plants requires simulation of the environment in which the plants grow in to aid in their ability to thrive.
Like the forest, individual trees and flowerbeds need mulch for the benefit of the retention of moisture, the added nutrients, insulation, weed deterrent, and eventually some added compost (compost is mulch decomposed even further which becomes a nutrient-rich soil.)
