  • When there is 4 times the dirt there than what was dug out, it's because it was a dump site for the other job sites. I've seen some do it. Maybe the other contractor should have been more than run off.

  • Chris do you see at any point using your New 220 on a Guins Project or will they be kept separate. Are you considered competators now? lol ya have to admit it's a little unique the position you're in. Just curious thats all. I'm happy everyone is getting work. Congrats on the new excavator. A Nice reminder of all that hard work the last 20 years.

    • Some people will say nothing and pay anyway. Then they just have someone else come do it. My wife watched a group do all the sidewalks over where she works. The job was just atrocious. Holes, pocked concrete with lips and ridges on it. The property manager just hired another contractor who pulled it all up and laid proper sidewalks.

I know it'll be many videos but from a before and after completion everyone will be able to tell that it was done by professionals and not someone that has no idea what their doing. Keep doing what you do Chris and im always waiting for the next video

  • Tim, you are so "smooth" with that bucket. You could probably win money like the old guy I used to work with. He had been a backhoe operator for many years and won lots of money from people betting them he could pick up a sheet of paper with his bucket. The "great unwashed public", would of course take the bet. Then he would plug his ears to protect them from the yelling after he waved the bucket just barely over the sheet of paper, creating a draft and curling the paper right into the bucket! Maybe sometime you could show...!

They finally called the right guy, so to speak. :) What use are these ponds you're digging everywhere? Here in Sweden, where I live, ponds like these are quite unheard of. Do the property owners use the ponds for irrigation purposes or something?
