  • I did dirt work for over 30 years half of them as a superintendent. There are so few operators that can jump on 4 or 5 different machines in a day and be efficient. You do nice work. I would have liked having you on my jobs.

  • How does Chris know the depth of the stone on top of the plastic? What depth is he shooting for? Does he stop and check a few places like farmers stop and check behind a combine or planter before doing the whole field?

  • The owner must be super happy that he does not have to pay for all of that clay. It would get a lot more expensive if it had to be trucked in.

    • That truck driver is also his weight in gold. A driver able to spread load backward on a turn is rare around here.

    • The first winter i lived in Greensboro NC it snowed 8 inches and we were out of school for a week! They dont get enough snow to justify purchasing snowplows and such. And Chris is well east of there(about an hour or so). It was glorious, from a Connecticut yankee teen’s viewpoint!

  • Chris try rolling your moboard back a little bit more, your trying to lay material with blade on edge, it's better back, finish grade can use edge more vertical, shaves better. Roll back prevent blade fro hopping. Dose your moborad has hydraulic tilting system.??

  • i hope the hell were ever this road going to, that they are not building home, unless they have no limit to money, just to bring hydro back al that way, at $2600 per pole, not including any guy wire, or cross support pole, each pole max 380 fet a part, then $37oo for rhe transformer pole, that was 1998 prices, even if your the last home on a town ship road ahydro stops a mile from your home, you pay to have the 15 foot hydro right of way cut, and pay for every pole, then as years pass homes get built, between they hookup to the line you paid for down the town ship road, even tho you paid to put it in,, once power is on, hydro owns the line, but if the line on privet land and a storm takes it out, you pay a line contractor to fix it.. i was lucky i was able to install all my poles and guy wires and CSR CABLE, BUT i had to pay hydro $1200 to hook my lines to theres and install a 2500kv transformer on my 45 foot transformer yard pole, i install a double lug 400 amp meter base on the pole, so 200 amp run to the house, and 200 amp to the shop, the triple 500 copper mast cable was $48 a foot for 400 amp, but hydro connected 2/0 UMW90 FROM TRANSFORMER TO MY TRIPLE 500 COPPER, MAST CABLE. BUT THAT WHAT I HAD TO INSTALL TO PASS CODE. 2/0 UMW90 IS FOR 100 AMP SERVICE BY CODE.. GO FIGER HYDRO CAN DO AS THEY PLEASE, HYDRO WANTS 4 feet of wire out the top of the mast to pass inspection, but when hydro comes to hook you up, they chop your cable back to a foot. i had to change a 200 meter base on a home, but the inspector wouldnt pass it, he made me replace the mast cables as the old ones onlyhad a foot sticking out the end of the mast, he wanted 4 feet, i changed out the cable leaving 4 feet, he passed it, hydro was there with in the hour to hook it back up, they choped my new cables back to 10 inchs and hamer locked there cable on. that burns my ass, changing cable was not in my bid. lucky 4/0 UMW90 IS NOT MUCH MONEY

  • when i was trained on heavy equipment some 40 years ago by 3 difference contractors, before i went to work in logging camps. i was always told. it you are running a track machine, if them tracks are turning, that blade better be working, undercarriages are not cheap.. that was drilled into me by all 3.. and as years went by, i sen why. how fast they wear, even on logging equipment, and big D7 and D8 building ice winter roads.. man did i ever get yelled at, if them track were turning and the blade was up, unless i was walking it to another job site. i broke my collar bone. on a 977 cat track frame bolt, nut, in a rock corrie. a 1" drive socket 1-7/8 snap tools on, a 1' power bar with a 10 foot pipe and 2 of use on the pipe trying to bake the nuts loss, the socket broke and that pipe hit my collar bone, it was all over.. never forgotten that. hell if i filled in holes were i dug out clay and filled them with mud or any other dirt, sand, i would have a man eating pit, or anything that walked or drove on it, this red clay, it like a cement swimming pool. it will hold water for ever that dont go up. when my well was drilled they went though 62 feet of red and grey clay, have never found a rock on the property with all the digging and buldozing, after the 62 feet of clay, the went though 12 feet of coarse gravel, then 17 feet of bed rock into an 18"b deep water vane, drilled down 8 more feet in to the bed rock for a sump

  • So side note: looking at the shadows. If you could set my house down on that spot you are digging the clay. You in excavator would be looking in the east wall window of my bedroom, and the haul truck driver would be looking in the south wall window of my bedroom. Just having so much free time to think of stupid crap while watching! Does not mean I'm not going to watch, i like to watch.

  • Why didn't you put the pipe in before building up the road. Seems counter productive

    Karl MitchellKarl Mitchell3 ditë më parë
    • I guess I'm looking at this thr wrong way

      Karl MitchellKarl Mitchell3 ditë më parë
    • @Karl Mitchell im not an expert, You cant build on fragile old surface ( contaminated, loose soil, sand mud etc) Though its logical to remove the old deteriorated dirt & soil etc, build a solid surface with the fresh clay ( untouched by removing the top layer of vegetation ) packing it in like they do with the equipment & roller (1000's of pounds of pressure) Then build the layers

      Stratos53100Stratos531003 ditë më parë
    • Then why not just pack the original soil then lay the clay over that

      Karl MitchellKarl Mitchell3 ditë më parë
    • @Karl Mitchell True, tough once placed the solid "fresh" product is packed around the pipe ( with the bucket) then "re-graded" smooth over the top of it

  • What kind of rock is that you use for road base all the time? It looks great! We don't have rock like that down here in Florida. They always bed our roads with limerock which does compact real good but kind of washes away real easy when it rains. Limerock only works well when it's covered by asphalt. If you try to just have a bare limerock road it ruts and rills and develops that washboard surface after driving on it a bunch and the rain causes massive pothole craters in random places. Wish we had rock like you got up there.

  • Chris... When you get on a job such as this how do you go about planning it? I am sure the client has list of wants and needs and a budget. But like having to remove bad soil to get down to stable substrate. Is something like that figured into the bid cause you don't know till you start doing the job. It takes more time and effort. Just curious...
