  • You are much smoother with that. I was wondering about slop, then you mention shims. I was offered to use track hoe. I declined. Owners employee laid it on side doing the work. (Reason I declined invitation). Plus I’m paying by machine hr, figured his employee was more skilled. I was wrong. Guess there was reason owner had told me to go ahead and do work when he unloaded it. I just sold my last backhoe type unit. A skid loader backhoe. Talk about teaspoons of dirt. But for 5” and smaller pipe, @3’ deep inside building area it was great.

  • Its good to see randy quaid get back to work. And the original guy made a wall of pure topsoil that a few feet thick... it wouldnt last more than a year or two depending how much rain it gets, and looking at the trees they get quite a bit.

  • Don't know why this showed up in my recommended videos, but I'm glad it did. I know precisely nothing about building a pond, but I'm pretty sure even I wouldn't have put the overflow as high as the doggone dam. Also, that machine is sweet as can be. Looks like a pleasure to operate. Have followed the cheap guy lots of times in my line as well. Never a fun time for the customer.

    Bill TBill T17 ditë më parë
  • I learned a lot. It was a decent mudhole before, they should have added a runway for the overflow so it wouldn't make a hole but it was looking fine. It's sad the big old strong trees had to go. Apparently they were "going to die." I just want to say, no shit!!! Trees all die, that's no excuse for in the future. Even if ponds are valued more than a tree, a tree has a positive impact for the world. Ponds have a positive impact for few. If people were smarter, they would want trees and have few good reasons to have a pond but we serve a demand. I'm a pond guy too. What did you do with the trees?

  • Seen this situation working with my dad in flooring. We needed to grind and seal some concrete slab against moisture, he was going to charge $500. Customer went and got home depot labor instead, my dad even told her to insure they grind the floor or the sealer won't do it's job. We took our grinder with us so it wouldn't be used for obvious reasons. Came in the next day, my dad bent down and was very easily able to just peel the sealer up off the floor. So he said she could either sign something so he isn't held liable for the eventual failure or she can now pay us to scrape up all the sealer, grind the floor and apply new sealer which the customer had to buy again. Instead of the $500 he charged $800 now for the additional labor and she was out at least another $600 for new sealer plus whatever she paid the other people. People need to learn, professionals charge what they charge for a reason!!

    • To store water, or to improve drainage. The land has a slope so the pond will help prevent erosion.

  • I love ( not really) how us humans just push over and kill something that's been growing for a good amount of years like we are flicking a spec of dust off our body like its nothing no thought about the tree at all . Like we have every right to do so I really don't like to say "hate" because after all God diddle us but I really don't like the human race much I really have a hard time not judging people which is a bad thing to do but its so hard when you have people like this just pushing over that healthy tree it sucks
