  • Forgive me for asking but how much do these pond dig outs usually cost? Like are they 10k to 20k jobs or is it closer to the 70k to 100k jobs? Do you have a video of cost break downs? I know every job is different but a ball park would be great to know.

  • I've used trees before to do a grade and smooth out dirt. Had a client once comment. If you can make this property look like this without everything you need. I can't imagine what you could do if you had everything you needed

  • Great video but I don’t understand why the guy wanted the berms on the side of his road. I would think that would prevent the road from draining nicely. That said, Darn talented operation skills. 👍🇺🇸😀

  • When you are working below the truck level, would you ever consider loading with a conveyor belt to lift the dirt up into the truck so you could easily load into a hopper within reach and sight? You know how many bucketful's would fill the truck and John can position the truck to the inch.

  • Not to criticize, but I had a logging company come and clear all my pine trees and paid me $300 per tree. In all your videos I watched you take down the pines and wondered all that good lumber is going to waste. Have you considered taking them down and calling a logging company to remove them and make a little money?

  • Hey Chris, don't know if you'll have time to see this with as many videos as you upload and as many comments as each has, but I was wondering if you think those berms on the sides of the road will cause water issues on the road itself? There doesn't appear to be much of a ditch, so it seems as though the rain water that would have run away from the road will now be held between the berms and run down the hill along the road. It's hard to tell some of the finer details of the topography from the GoPro footage though, so I could easily be wrong.

  • Love the videos!!! How, long does a job like this generally take and what is the average cost for the pond owner? Yes, I understand each job is different but as an example using this videos job site as an example can you give us a basic idea with out going into details? This is something I never see in your videos and interests me greatly. Thanks again for the great videos.

  • After all thise dang volvos have been thru lately they are probably loving that sandy work . Cuts that mess like its butter. Inwas a heavy equipment operator when i was younger and sure wish i had stayed in it Now im too old and ugly to do it anymore. Its probably awesome you do t have to move your piles three times to reach the truck.either for once
