  • Hate seeing a Dozer without rippers on it, makes rig unbalanced.

  • The ash is reactivated carbon. Absolutely amazing for soil fertilizer. Why on earth would you haul it off?

    Jason HartzogJason Hartzog15 ditë më parë
  • One more question. I notice you start out pushing about a 1/4 of the blade. When I ran the dozer, a small one I was told to grab about 1/2 of the blade. I think I like the 1/4 blade

  • Do you ever back drag? I’m guessing no because your land is level after pushing the pile up

  • I like the commentary as you operate the machines. I do wish you had a noise canceling mic. In the excavators is really hard to hear you talk.

  • why do you not get a bigger excavator? like a 300 with a 72 in bucket

  • Do u have the hydraulics turned up on the 160 or is that just the stock cycle times? Seems like that thing is moving real fast?

  • You always have a plan, Mike and 6 additional plans on the agenda after that If everyone stayed busy and worked like you, we would not have problems with unemployment, welfare and mental and emotional distress You create a state of mind that results in self worth and pride, also a sense of accomplishment. Everyone should have the psychological needs met, but most are too lazy. I bet you also sleep well at night, unless you are thinking about the next big project. Good job with the excavator.

  • Chris, three things, (1) The next time you go to Tractor Supply you need to tell them they owe you at least a half dozen free 5 gallon buckets for the free advertising that you gave them in this video (2) What happened to the Beavers, were they safely captured and relocated to another area for someone else to deal with (3) Got to get yourself another sidekick, if you don't do so soon, you are going to wear yourself out driving all the machines, cutting the logs, checking with the grading stick, etc.

  • Why do people often want to use the least amount of culvert possible. They are going to have the same issue with the new that the old one had with the ends wanting to cover over.

  • Hey chris, i wanna congratulate you on the new personal machine and set up, it looks great and I can tell that once you got your new excavator and the new bucket and thumb designed the way you wanted it that you now are really having a blast working. Its almost fun and not its great to see you get a nice set up like that,you deserve it if anyone does. I got a quick question, I know that you work for your uncle, how ever i know that with your 2 personal machine's that you do side jobs,or basically run your own little business im just wondering when you have time to do all of this? I know you put in alot of hours for your uncles company. Im figuring that you do it mostly on the weekends but now your taking on more personal jobs and bigger personal jobs so I'm curious are you looking to basically go out on your own eventually? I know its a personal question so if you would rather not comment on you tube I get it. I wish you the best of luck and keep up the hard work and awesome content. Oh one more question now that you got your own dream set up do you go to work and get into your uncles equipment and think man I wish this was my personal set up? Have a wonderful day.

  • Ah, so you do use concrete pipes in the US too. I was wondering about that, since most ALworldrs I see seem to install corrugated iron or plastic piping. Over here concrete is the only material used for drainage pipes beneath access roads. Why are they so rarely used over there, are they more expensive, or simply much heavier to install with smaller equipment?

  • I thought the purpose of burning the wood is so you don't haul away now you're hauling loads of as dust where you gonna put it and why can't you leave it were at that if it's burned out is it it all go away til ash Justice is charcoal basically that eventually feeds the land why would you get rid of it now were you gonna put it and where which gigia not you just give a spread it all over the farm for all over the the the landscape after that by burning it was the whole purpose was he didn't have to haul anything away
