Customer Reviews

I can’t say enough great things about Sprague’s Backhoe and Jack and Stacey! They made the installation of my aerobic septic system so smooth and stress free! They not only took care of correlating all the other needed services, but kept me informed through the entire process!
Hopefully, I’ll be purchasing a storm shelter in the future and I will be contacting them again! Thank you, Jack and Stacey!

After a long absolutely horrible experience with another storm shelter company that resulted in us demanding full removal of our shelter and cancelation of our contract we ended up going with Sprague’s. The two experiences were like night and day. Everything went smoothly with Sprague’s. Dealing with Stacey and Jack was a pleasure. Stacey is so sweet and they both talk to you like you are old friends. Stacey helped us with everything concerning our rebate from our city’s grant and gave us confidence that everything was done correctly.
If you love a company with down to earth old school values, extreme professionalism, skilled workers and high quality product then Sprague’s Backhoe is the company for you. I can not say enough positive about this company and the individuals who run it.
I am so happy to have a tornado shelter that I can feel 100% confident in taking my family in during dangerous weather and I have Sprague’s to thank for that.

They were very knowledgeable about the storm shelter rebate program. They got out to us very quickly for installation. Great customer service. I appreciated how they cleaned up the work area and covered their tire marks from the backhoe in my yard. We have done a lot of projects at our house and not one company has taken the time or thought to do that.

In the past two years, my mother, niece, a close friend and I have all had Sprague’s Backhoe install our storm shelters. They arrived on time, they did a great job, and they were very professional. Great businesses like Sprague’s Backhoe is hard to find nowadays.

Jack is an artist with a backhoe. We had a lumpy mess of dirt and tree roots and now we have a beautiful circle drive around our shop. He spent a lot of time making it smooth and attractive. His price was very reasonable. He and Stacey are extremely nice people to work with.

Oh my word. Three driveways, five loads of crushed concrete, spread and manicured in 1/2 day. Looks amazing Jack! Thank you! You are more than 5 stars to us!!

After checking into several storm shelter companies we chose to use Sprague’s. We could NOT be happier! They were amazing and so easy to communicate with. They worked around our hectic schedule to make sure we got the storm shelter in as soon as possible. We have never felt safer during storm season and our kiddos are ecstatic! We would absolutely recommend them. If you’re looking for a storm shelter call them!

We hired Sprague’s Backhoe to clear our raw land before putting it up for sale. They did a great job and it actually increased the market value! We highly recommend them!

Outstanding communication and top notch customer service. They installed my storm shelter as well as hauled two loads of crushed asphalt to my house. The shelter went in perfectly with zero problems. The crushed asphalt was by far the best material I’ve received for the private road I live on. Delivery was on time with ample effective communication prior to arrival. Scheduling the delivery was smooth as silk. Sprague’s Backhoe is my first and only call for material or backhoe work.

Stacey and Jack were great to work with! After bouts of bad weather, they got us scheduled for our storm shelter install quickly! Jack was very skilled! I highly recommend Sprague’s Backhoe! Thanks Sprague’s!

I recently hired Sprague’s Backhoe to help me with the burial of a farm animal on our land. They arrived on time, were able to dig the site quickly, and even helped the vet when it came time for the burial. I appreciated his help and that he understood how difficult this situation was for me personally.( He fit me into the schedule when he learned it was a burial). We have used this service before for a similar situation, and for some work on a pond and will ALWAYS call them for backhoe work. I felt that their prices were reasonable, they were nice enough to respond quickly under the circumstances, and they do good work.

Sprague’s has done several jobs for us – septic w/lateral lines, driveway w/tinhorn, storm shelter & delivered several loads of gravel and topsoil. They are great people. Very professional and knowledgeable. I highly recommend!

I would like to praise this great young couple who are not afraid of hard work and giving great service. Yesterday, I had one of the above ground safe rooms installed. I am very pleased with the look of it. They did everything they said they would at the time they said they would! Some year back I had a below ground storm cellar install and almost every thing went wrong. Only because a friend knew something about that business owner did it get repaired. Since I no longer can climb down in and out of it with out pain. Thank You Jack and Stacey, you did a great job.

Joyce S.

We had our storm shelter (I call it my peace of mind) installed today. We highly recommend Sprague’s Backhoe, Stacey and Jack were both great through out the entire process. We called around to several companies and they were by far the best. I love the fact that they are local and they made us feel comfortable from the very beginning. Thank you guys so much!

There are not enough stars to properly rate this company. They have been the best since day one. They made my son and his wife’s first home set up a breeze! He has gone out of his way to make sure we had everything we needed. He is, should I say, a Jack of all trades?!?…literally since his name is Jack and there is nothing he can’t do. He has went above and beyond in all aspects. If you need a septic, storm shelter, driveway work or any backhoe services, then I strongly recommend you to call Sprague’s Backhoe! Thank you Jack for everything sir!

Aaron D.
Tuttle, OK

Highly recommended! As a matter of fact, I have already requested another job! Clearly communicated price, expected time of availability and length of job. We had several delays due to uncontrollable circumstances and all were handled with honesty and professionalism.
