  • Clearing and burning is my favorite operating job.. Days of just you and your machine, wood smoke and solice..

  • Could you not invest in a big shredder to deal with the brush and trees rather than burning it and spread the results where applicable for rotting down?

  • Chris, maybe a strange question for you or your family and I are planning on escaping all of the death in New Jersey and reloc to your beautiful state! Currently looking at a property with a pond and it scares the heck out of me! How do I know if it is a “good” pond? Don’t know all the details but it appears to be a spring fed with no man made dam. It looks very well cared for, at least cosmetically. What is your liability? Should you carry extra home owner insurance? Are there “pond” inspectors? Any help or comments would be appreciated. Thanks

  • Im not about burying potash. I normally spread it over the house site to cool off. When they get ready to build and tell you where to strip the topsoil from... potash is already mixed and just makes a whole lot better soilto make yard from when construction is completed.

  • Nice to see your "manmade miniature" Pyroclastic flow-clouds rolling away like volcanos you do when moving hot ashes, Chris. Like every Fire Fighter on Earth I love to watch a burning heap made of a skilled "pyromaniac" as you, Chris! A lot better than make forest-fire spread lab studies on 100 pinecones and wind from an oxygen cylinder! Haha! I think SSAB who make Hardox 700 also can give you Invar steel for your next "special" burn pile bucket! ;D

  • Well Chris once again another great video and I just wanted to say again to you thank you for taking us along with you every day. And for taking the time to shoot a 15-1 hour video everyday for us to watch, because I look forward to that every morning when I’m sitting here drinking my cup of coffee. That starts my day off every day but anyway brother you and John in yawls family stay safe and keep the videos coming brother

  • Drive around with a grass seeder on the back of pickup dragging old bed springs and get a gentle rain no straw needed or straw if you want. Straw somtimes has weed seeds in it. If that has briars they will come back up. I might spray it now with some heavy duty briar killer then 3 weeks do the grass. Popcorn all gone and a 20 ounce. pepsi . I'm FULL. Looking good they need drainage or it will be skeeter city.

  • So actually question and I don't mean this to sound bad in anyway I am legitimately curious. What is with all the ponds? Everyone seems to want a pond or has one that you are clearing out. Which is cool I like it I'm just curious is all. Love the videos and you have helped me learn a lot just by watching your videos.

    matthew dingmanmatthew dingmanMuaj më parë
    • The area where I live people use the ponds for live stock and wild stock water feeders, it also makes areas around the pond less favourable for mosquitos to hatch their eggs. But some just have them cause they think it looks pretty.

  • I wish someone would tell him a “deadcat” over the microphone would go a long way. I mentioned it one of the rock grinder videos when the wind was terrible. Also, would love to see a better quality lens on the camera. The fisheye makes it so hard to see grade. Anyways, Chris is still one of my favorite channels. Just thought I would mention it.

    • I think it is a type of flood control. They get a lot of rain there. The water is going to go somewhere. Make a pond to control where it goes. Plus it can be used later when it doesn't rain.
