at the small end, a lot of them basically a tree service with 1 handcrew or 1 guy who owns a roofing business and has a type 6 on the back 40 that he wheels out a couple times a year. Grayback is very much an anomaly, not just by virtue of its size but also by virtue of having any internet presence to speak of. GFP, GE, Javier Orozco, Sundance, Cut Wright, Bella, Firestorm, Dust Busters, Inland, that one engine on the Miller Complex in 2017 with pic related on the doors, that other one which had some really cringy crossed Pulaskis shit but boy was it a nice truck, ....
I don't know if Grayback is the best, but you know what you're getting with them and they have the most to lose by screwing up. And Ed Floate is the man.
