  • What was wrong with the sidewalk ? Why did you smash it up ?

  • In the past, when I needed to move pieces of walk. I score the joints with saw, drill two holes in slab at an angle opposed each other. Drive two pieces rebar bout 2' apart , bend them over and attach a chain , then lift entire piece out. Saves rock cushin. Works well in sensitive areas. A little labor but very efficient up against store front or pipes.

  • There is little chance of getting any extra payment for re-instating the sidewalk the The Client draws up the contract not the contractor and they will have made that re-instatement a part of the contract on the initial tender documents. I suspect letsdig won this job on the hope that protecting the sidewalk as adverse to replacing it would save money, so put in a lower bid. May have done this job at a loss or at best broke even.

  • Professionalism at its highest. The 250 is awesome, but you use a toothpick to clean your teeth. I like the Yanmar. It's as efficient, per size, as the others when you operate it.

  • Is there a reason you use the mini rather than the skidsteer to pull that concrete up? It seems the skidsteer would be more efficient. But I am just a youtube commenter.

  • it's not bad for winging it....but get lasar or a get the side walk more STRAIGTH...or gig it a little WIDER..So the frammers has room to work not have to gig as much to make finer adjustments. Trust me..ive framed sidewalks...Done different dirt work. It's a pain in the arss sometimes...Dig and repack the same damn 100 feet hole for weeks.And of course..there always has to be a tree or hyrant in the way.lmao you dont want it cati'll look like SHIET when you're WALKING/USING the sidewalk.

  • Don't understand why, your wanting to handle all that debris 2 and 3 times? Time is money. With 2 or 3 triaxles you could have kept up with clearing. grading and hauling, and cut your time on the J O B at least by 30%.

  • A question: In Sweden where I live we nearly never use concrete on pathways or pavements. Is it cost or summer heat you use it instead of asphalt or tarmac? We usually use asphalt, paving stone or prefab reinforced (10 tons wheel pressure) concrete paver, all laid with small machines. We also use ½-1" steel sheets with chain lift holes to protect surfaces and they are surely reusable! :D

    • @Uppsalahazze Markstedt In britain, they just stick slabs with raised bumps in them into the pavements around pedestrian crossings. I don't think america has standards for those.

    • @Skorpy Nekomimi Thank you for your answer! Can be a difficulty to do the right choice between tactile stone for blind persons or skateboarders at a pedestrian crossing! :D

    • Not everywhere in the US uses concrete. Some places have paths made out of local stone (thoughtfully left covered in sharp bumps in case someone falls over on it), or proper tarmaced ones.

  • CHRIS, down here in Louisiana my 3000+ pond gets full with a heavy rain and afterwards , the water will go down about one foot in three hours! I can’t afford to buy a rubber liner! Could I get some clay and line the bottom like y’all do? Just wondering brother! I’d appreciate your input on the matter! Before I fill it in!

    Kirk RogersKirk Rogers3 muaj më parë
  • I want to rent a mini to fill in a pond in my backyard that I never had a chance to finish! I got too old to deal with it now as much as I’d love to have it but now I realize that I just need to back fill it! It’s about 300 +gallon pond and was my dream, just never got the money to finish it! So I guess it would be nice to rent a mini to play with and fill it in! I really like watching you work your mini, I tell everyone that you’re the Excavator Surgeon! You’re the best I’ve ever seen!

    • It's concrete slabs, not reinforced concrete. You only use rebar if you need it to deal with tension, which concrete is inherently bad at.

    • The rip rap I use is either granite or limestone. The concrete could work alright but wouldn't look as good and he'd have to break it up more than it is. Plus, he'd be tearing up the base under the sidewalk driving back and forth, so it would be more work getting the sidewalk back in. All in all, I'd say more labor breaking up the sidewalk and the looks would be the biggest reasons I wouldn't do it like that.
