  • Machine #4, you said it was a “problem”... always remember and never forget, there are never problems, only solutions. I never say I have a problem, I only have solutions to screwed up situations.👍

  • A man who knows how to build a road - get the road above the water, protect the in situ material and get the water off the road. Very nice work.

  • It’s so funny you are driving around in mud getting stuck next to a perfectly good road. I know you said why but still amusing to me. Was there no way to start at the middle and work out?

  • Question from someone who knows nothing about digging and moving dirt: why do you park the haul truck with the tipper vertical? I assume it has something to do with allowing the remnants of what was in it to dry out and fall off? Doesn't this have a negative effect on the hydraulic rams holding the tipper up?

    Ian KempIan Kemp11 ditë më parë
    • I've heard a variety of answers but most have said its for drainage. I work for the county and we are forbidden from leaving our box up in the air like that as it could come down on someone. We have to render all of our hydraulics in a safe status so no one can get hurt. I've never ran one of those haul trucks so I don't know if they have the same risks of coming down as our dump trucks do. I do know that when we park our shoulder mowers, the mower deck will tilt down and be on the ground by the next day. So hydraulics releasing is a real thing.

    • The tipper sticking up in the air means it's easier to find in the morning. Ever lose your car in a car park? It's like that, only with heavy equipment.

      Skorpy NekomimiSkorpy Nekomimi11 ditë më parë
    • it probably stops water pooling in it and finding ways to rust anything out. Equally if it’s cold enough expansion and contraction of any ice formed in any weak spots can create bigger holes

  • I think that clay pit will be completely empty before you need another place that needs lifting up. So the only thing you don't use the excavator is unrolling the cloth. :) The ducks will be nesting next year in their new water front pond.
