  • I've been noticing for a while now how high the mud flaps are on the dump truck when he's "reverse spreading." I mention this because I drove semi for 25 years and one of the many jobs I had over that time was running a 35-yard end dump. I remember DOT regulations for the mud flaps were no more than 4" in off the ground (on any truck) which made it hell to reverse spread. Still could do it but have to make sure to go thin. Even just backing into a job site you could tear them off I just going through some soft mud or something and then you see him laying out in front of you after you backed up. So what you do to get around their DOT regulations is you get out to your cordless drill and a couple wrenches and you drill new holes about 3in" down and mount them in the new holes. Now you're good to go. On the off chance that you might get pulled over for a random inspection once a year or so they will generally let you slide on the fact that you made the effort to fix the problem rather than just ran without mud flaps which would be a much greater problem. If you got the one DOT cop that wrote you a Fix-It ticket then you just put new flaps on long enough to go have it inspected and then you put the old flaps back on

  • I like the stick view. It gives a better view of you breaking those trees into smaller pieces. Most of us know what you’re doing. But to someone new to this type of work, it gives them a birds eye view of what’s happening and a better understanding too. 👍🏻

  • Them ‘little’ trees you just grab and pluck out the ground, could you do a size comparison like when you stand next to the bucket and do a scoop comparison? Them little trees look like twigs but I bet they’re still decent size trees 😂

  • I like following you but you realy need to timelapse some bits... i get that it saves you time not to and if you get the views anyways so be it. Im just saying that i dont have time to watch every bucket in real time so im skipping a bit.

  • LoL.... I HAVE GOT TO HAVE A LAWNMOWER like that 😂🤣 an it's zero turn plus! Nice job cleaning up an I have got a new name for the excavator! Laughing no longer going to be referred to as excavator it's officially dubbed the world's greatest toothpick maker!! Lol .... An I have set many hours in an excavator and I know to everybody this is so exciting,, but as the operator it can become monotonous doing the same thing... But the greatest thing about the whole job; is every job site is different.. you might go through some similar motions over and over but each time you pull in on a new job site it's different and that is what makes each job site exciting an of course new influx $$$$. 00 makes it one smile too 😉

  • For those who don't operate some of these types of equipment, you should look at some of the heavy duty "mowers" out there. They'll take down a 4 inch tree and give you kindling. The drum cutters are even more powerful, chewing through 12' trees. First time I hit a deer carcass, I thought I'd killed someone. High-flow hydraulics are not toys. Good to watch someone like Chris operating one, and using proper caution. Those 'mowers' can sail rocks and logs a long way. Keep up the fine work Mr. Chris.

    • @Kathy Woodlief the worst episode was in Austin, where I was clearing a piece of property near downtown. Started working before sunup, and nearly ran over a homeless camp. To have someone pop up in front of you, with all the dust, debris and flood lights, makes you jump a little. 😉 Bet it got their heart beating a little as well.

  • That brush cutter motor sounds like its destroying itself every time you steal flow with a big lift or tilt command. I hope its just an anti-cavitation valve making noise and not actual cavitation tearing the motor up. I learn a lot from your videos - keep em comin!

  • Why no fabric for the driveway

    lordhoho1lordhoho115 ditë më parë
    • @lordhoho1 the property was already developed, now it's been a long time since it was worked on so it accumulated some dirt and trees, but nothing like what was originally there. Just a little top dressing and gravel good to go. I was thinking this was a one day job, the customer paid for a level pad I guess that took another day, wasn't expecting another days worth of work.

      xtort107xtort10714 ditë më parë
    • @xtort107 In second part he says that the top soil was stripped off meaning the road. If a road was already there there would be no top soil. What you saw was a paved entrance to the property and assume that it went further in which it did not

      lordhoho1lordhoho114 ditë më parë
    • Established road, that property was going to be more subdivision, it has roadbase ready for paving, no need for the fabric

    • I think the woods are too close in for a bonfire, plus I think this was a one day job reestablish the road and clear the shop pad, think that's all the guy paid for, burning requires a pit to bury everything, making it a multiple day job, I don't think the customer was looking to do all that. Guess they already budgeted for a debris haul off probably cheaper than a burn permit.
