  • I must say Chris , I have been watching your videos for some time now and I'm always impressed how well you operate the excavator then skid steer , the dozer the grader it's all the same quality , very good 👌🏻

  • I think that there are hundreds of hours of work that you do that we don't see. Are there times ( like this project) that make you wonder if you should go in to something else?

  • NIce work. Very calming to watch these videos. Thanks for posting them. Think Mike's Volvo needs some Hydraulic work. It looks to be underpowered a little which gets him to complaing and comparing to the 120 John Deere but I think it's a little weak due to some issue with the Hydraulic system [just a guess but it looks maybe to be the thing].... Love watching your Volvo's just getting it DONE though :-) Rock on!

  • Out of all channels on youtube that I watch no one can operate an excavator better than you can, no one. I have to ask you something that is none of my business but will ask anyway. I have been watching your channel for years and not once have I seen you not ever mention any woman in your life why is that? Your a good looking guy, well off in life, at the prime of your life. I would think you would have to beat woman off with a stick. I know it's none of my business

  • Could you explain how this building spot would be cost effective when one considers the intense rock removal? I can see it is a good place for a building, but wonder if another spot or another design would have been financially better? I know little about what can be built on or not.

    Karen EllingsonKaren Ellingsonپیش ماه
  • I've said it before. This was probably the worst place to build anything on.

  • What size bodys are on the six axle dumps

    Geoffrey SheddGeoffrey Sheddپیش ماه
  • Question about making a flat pull along the ground - since everything is angles and compound angles, is there a sweet spot on the controls that causes the boom's shoulder, arm, and wrist to cut a nice flat line parallel to the tracks, or is that all operator finesse?

    frollardfrollardپیش ماه
  • Hey Chris who is tooting on the claxon, you or the truckdriver? Just wondering :) Also a new fan of yours !!

    Rick LaneRick Laneپیش ماه
    • @Al Kirby Thanks mate, unfortunately Chris will not react lol.

      Rick LaneRick Laneپیش ماه
    • Chris blows the horn to signal the truck driver when to stop (backing up) and when to leave (loaded).

      Al KirbyAl Kirbyپیش ماه
  • I wonder how expensive that project was

    Erik SchravenErik Schravenپیش ماه
  • i would love to hear your thoughts when running that skid steer. i have not used one with the tracks or used it to set grade. knowing where to add or scrape. love what you're doing.

    Tony ColeTony Coleپیش ماه
  • Love the way you put the bucket down the side to tell the driver to go

    Adrian BurdessAdrian Burdessپیش ماه
  • Why ant the rocks moved over the other side to complete that side fully

    Peter BrownPeter Brownپیش ماه
  • I wonder if a few of us could grab a few chairs and glass of ice tea and camp out and watch Chris dig for a day 😎. To that driver in the first truck I wouldn’t walk by my truck during loading I seen a few boulders fall out the bucket that would be a bad headache 🤕

    Kt CarrollKt Carrollپیش ماه
  • Another damn good video Chris and when you got into that pure dirt you went pretty fast and moved a lot of dirt but anyway brother you and John and your family stay safe and keep the videos coming man I’ll look forward to them every morning at 4:30 in the morning drinking my 1st cup of coffee. Lol

  • I love your videos! My grandfathers were cat skinners and operated whatever the biggest model was in the 50s & 60s. I’m 64 now and among my fondest memories are climbing up on grandpa’s cat and getting a ride, a boy’s delight! Since then I’ve loved watching big construction equipment. Thanks for giving me the chance!

  • where does the money come from for all this extra expense ??

    scott lundgrenscott lundgrenپیش ماه
    • @Sal A I work for a contractor in Florida and they always had a clause in the contract Rock was extra money.

      scott lundgrenscott lundgrenپیش ماه
    • It’s all in the contract. Most of them have sections with contingency items that call out rates and change orders for unforeseen site conditions. In that case the pen is mightier then the shovel lol because a well written contract not only protects you but makes you come serious coin

      Sal ASal Aپیش ماه
  • Hello Chris, Really enjoy your channel wished I could learn how to run a excavator, I can run front end loaders and skidster but never had the opportunity to run a excavator. I do have question for you at the end of the video I notice 2 small piles with flags on them what are those for?

    Walter DWalter Dپیش ماه
    • @timmy frierson anyway ya look at it, he’s definitely gonna need new pins and bushings for that bucket taking all that abuse from digging and grabbing all them heavy boulders. (P.S maybe teeth too lol)

      Dean CameronDean Cameronپیش ماه
    • I remember him saying that all I was saying is it definitely needed them after this he was worried about the teeth they still look good 1🤣🤣

      Walter DWalter Dپیش ماه
    • I think he said that they already had the pins and bushings for the bucket but they were going to wait till they finish that job before they put them in. Now don’t hold me to that but I believe that’s what he said at the beginning of this project. J S.

  • Good day of “rock” fishing. Looks like it’s starting to getting a little overfished. 😄😄😄😄😄👍👍

    John WoodJohn Woodپیش ماه
  • Hey Chris why don't you suggest to owners to have you arrange boulders( charge for extra ) in a few spots instead of shipping them off ? Rocks are expensive to buy . Big boulders dig 1/2 in the ground showing the top. Makes em look natural. Wish I was closer to you , we could do a little boulder side business. Also, boulders used in ponds , spectacular look .

  • What is the GVWT on that 6axle truck???

    guyonabuffalo100guyonabuffalo100پیش ماه
  • Please tell me again why can't you fill up the trucks. Why have a big truck to carry a small load?

    Bill WonchobaBill Wonchobaپیش ماه
    • All (or mostly all) roadways have a maximum weight that can be transported over them, especially in the spring. If you're caught hauling an overweight load the fines can be steep.

      Al KirbyAl Kirbyپیش ماه
    • @GenerousLife Also the ground conditions where the load is being dumped. Although I must admit, the engine note as the trucks leave would say they are fairly maxed out anyway?

      nicktecky55nicktecky55پیش ماه
    • I am sure it is weight that determines the load size.
