About Us


Gill Excavating LLC and GMN Inc. are a family owned business that was started over 20 years ago. The owners, Gene, Jason, and Michael, believe that each project should be done right and reasonably just like we would do it if we were doing it for ourselves.


We offer many services such as clearing, mowing, and removal of brush with a trackhoe or the Brown Brontosaurus brush mower; roadside ditching with a Hurricane side arm ditcher; dirt moving with scrapers or trucks; and culvert installation.

Using trackhoes, we can remove and pile large trees and brush; clean and maintain ditches using a long reach or standard trackhoe; and place rip rap. We can remove and replace metal and concrete box structures with culverts that you provide us. If necessary, we will find the culverts for you, such as railroad tank cars or dual wall pipe.

The Brown Brontosaurus Mower is a complete brush control system that allows us to mow brush all year, even in difficult terrain. The mower system allows us to grind and mulch trees. These mowers can also grind up stumps, mow low-lying brush, and side trim trees. 

The Hurricane Ditcher has a 42” diameter wheel that discharges dirt out and away from the roadside ditch up to 150', putting it back where it came from in the field. This saves on the cost of rock when ditches are cleaned by grading material back out into the road by using a road grader.


We can also move dirt and material with our elevating or pan scrapers, pulled with Challengers or using our dump trucks and semis.

From estimate to project completion, we make sure that the project is done efficiently and right.
