  • Considering the low pitch angle of the pond you have around doubled the area.

  • What a fast job using the dozer. This was a piece of cake. Just watched a pond clean up from 2016 you were in 6 plus feet of mud losing the mats and talking to the excavator. You do love your work.

  • Why do so many people have ponds in this area? Is it for swimming, boating, fishing, fire fighting, etc? Just curious, I have never seen so many ponds.

  • I had a 5 acre pond on my farm and it was spring fed in the rainy seasons ground water but always had algae problems. I put bubblers in around the pond. Then lined it with 2” rip rap. Tried to put a white silica sand beach in but that was dumb. That lasted a year. There is a ton of maintenance if you want to keep a pond looking like a golf coarse pond. Otherwise ducks and other things bring in cat tails et . They take over fast. After 5 years I gave up maintanence on mine. I had to work. It grew over real fast. Heart breaking.

  • Will your pond need a liner? One 4xcavator in our area who started a huge project in the 80s put 3 0r 4 ponds in this subdivision, took a lot of clay away, the biggest pond doesn’t hold water. The home owners pay a huge electric bill every year to have a pump keep running through a 12 “ pipe. If it stops in 2 days the pond is only a cou-LR feet deep. Do you compact the clay

  • 2 things. On long repeat I’ve jobs spread up the tape once in a while to 4x. When at regular speed you gotta pretend I’m sitting or standing next to you. I’ve operated machines for a long time but pretend I’m an apprentice and talk to me tell me what your doing and why if a situation changes tell me why. By the way most pro you tubers over dub the video after editing, then they talk. This way you don’t lose concentration while working. Just trying to help. My buddy owns a 4th generation excavation road building and sewer company in WISCONSIN I wanna help him start doing this.

  • Hey there Chris. Can't really believe you call yourself an equipment operator. You wasted so many moves pushing dirt and muck around, you almost wore it out. If you truly had any inclination, you would have hogged what material needed to be removed, scraped the darker muck and clay, and make a borrow pile next to the pond. Finish all the grade in the pond. Then bring in a smaller material and Debi screen, which then you could have lined the whole of the pond,which would have lined that pond so a person would not really ever have to worry about it leaking through that clay. Then would have talked the owner to let the left over waste rock grinder tailings out about 10 or 15 feet. Then pee gravel starting at about 10 feet outwards from the to the high level water line, down into the tailings. Then finish grade around the pond. That way if the owner or his kids or grand kids, etc.etc.etc. in case they want to wade in and get their feet and legs wet , to taking a swim, with never having to get themselves muddy and makes for a nice edge around the water in the pond with giving them a nice place to swim, play or just having a spot to have a picnic to watch who's in the pond. Don't worry to much, keep on practising all the time, and one day you will be able to call yourself an equipment operator.

  • 39:26 seems before filling the pond with water they should cover the pond bottom with black Geomembrane Plastic Sheeting so that the water level always stays the same. Then there can be bank planting with habitat-typical aquatic plants

  • It's a shame there wasn't a bit extra $$$ to dig a channel 2 to 3' deep 10 to 15' wide right at the water's edge. That would have really helped keeping the algae under control. The is a really good job and nice pond. Wish it was mine
