  • all these pond jobs you do makes me think you should fabricate a large roll up dehydrator for pre excevation and hauling ease of muck

  • We live in a condo with a pond that they don't maintain at all, the dam is about to break, it only about a foot deep, and the drain has been rigged and failed with in a month of them "fixing it". Im thinking of taking bets on how much longer we will have a pond its that bad. I bring it up at the meetings but I don't know what I'm talking about. Thats kind of how I found this channel thru research.

  • You could pump that more efficently. Have a hopper at bottom and fill truck with screw pipe/pump like they use at farms.

  • What do you do with all of the mud/silt that you take out of a pond like this. It does not seem that it would make any kind of fill.

    Joe BledsoeJoe Bledsoe26 ditë më parë
  • Here’s an idea, can AMI design an attachment to give you a long reach scoop more than bucket, almost like a 12’ long arm with a drag scoop on the end so you can draw material towards you without lifting it that way you could drag a lot from safer footing ?

  • Best mudding yet! Next time you oops delete video, before you do anything else, use a file recovery program. When you delete a file, it is still physically on the drive; there's just nothing that says there is a file. The file will stay there until it gets overwritten. Check out this Vsauce video on the subject:

  • They should just accept that silting happens and build access into these ponds. That'd cost them less in the long run.

  • You need what they use out here in the San Joaquin River in the Northern California Delta they use mudsuction pumps they dredge the main channel from 55ft to 70ft. They just sucked all that silty mud a mile down the channel and dumped it into a farmer's field. 2 good things came out of it. 1. the channel is deeper allowing bigger ships to come in. We are the furthest inland seaport on the west coast of the United States 2. It made the levee wider and taller along several farmers property. Cause I know one bucket full at a time sucks. But you do so nice work

  • Boss? I hate to tell you but this winter? I'm thinking going to haft to build some new mats 🙃 ... At first?? I was thinking you needed a wider bucket.. but after the side view (( GoPro on the ground) it only took me a nanosecond to toss that idea out!! Lol while a wider bucket would speed things up but you would sink like a lead balloon 😬.. in that mush I don't think a set of 14 footers would stay up... But I would be a chicken an of hooked a cable on to excavator in case I went down.😆 🐔... But I just love your big mat float 👍 does a nice job of not leaving holes!!!
