  • Hey Chris, what do i need to ask for when ordering a concrete overflow box like this and also do you custom make the grates or is that something you get from the concrete box supplier?

  • Nice work. Enjoy watching you handle your equipment so efficiently. As for his drain line that you capped, he should install a valve in the line eventually that way he can drain it anytime he needs without the bath.

  • You ever try using 4" corrugated drain pipe as your siphon instead of the pvc? I could see 2 long pieces while keeping pvc T in the middle being quicker to set up/disassemble than screwing all those ferncos together and whatnot

  • Do you find the compactor working better pulling or pushing away or does it even matter. How much does it weigh and great job straddling the ditch all the way to the creek. Would like to see an update once the pond is back at level with the new overflow working !!!⚓️🇺🇸

  • I have noticed you are not using the 220 lately. Is it in the shop for repairs or maintenance? Good to know you have a backup machine that can still do the job. Actually, I think I see why you used the other machine; it has the compacting attachment, lol. Would love more explanation of the engineering involved in what you do, like the grade and leveling and determining those measurements. Amazing you did the entire project on your own, you seem to have it down pat and take it all in stride. Thanks for sharing and love the channel. Also, I was wondering did you go to a technical school to learn how to use all the machines and then also the engineering to do all the jobs you take?

  • Amazing work man! Quick question, how do you deal with that sticky clay when trying to compact with a roller? Do you ease up on the down pressure or give er hell?

    wraith0127wraith0127پیش 28 روز
    • Also at the end, you have the end of the old pipe capped off but most of the time it would be full of water. Are you worried that end of the pipe might freeze and burst the pipe and cap off in the winter?

  • Risk of ice cracking of water filled Exposeds Capt drain pipe ? (Mayby not a problem at all due to local climate ?), and also easy to prevent even if there is; one: insulating in wintertime. Why do you choose to cap that end? Why not in pond, then the old pipe would be dry downstream when the pipe is Capt of. "Underwater plug"may also not need treading due to overhead water pressure. (I understand that treading one in underwater would be hard.) I'm just curious, not meaning to sound like /bee a smartass

    Will BWill Bپیش 29 روز
  • Yes that space you filled in with mortar in the drain box is lower for a reason being it's to catch trash before it goes down the pipe and plugs it and they make corner screws to hold the box down to keep it from floating out of the hole just saying

  • Chris, I came across your channel in Jan '21 while searching through vehicle recovery videos, I came across one of yours digging out a 360 from the middle of a pond ( v=3Eo_GvDGP-g ) , Since then I have ended up viewing almost 8 hours of your videos, For some reason I find them extremely therapeutic/hypnotic to watch, and I enjoy your problem solving and daily challenges very much.. Who would have thought driving excavator equipment could be so interesting ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I wish I had got my ticket to operate 360 excavators when I had the chance some years ago, but I ended up being a UK truck driver instead.. Keep up the good work.. I look forward to many more of your videos in the future.

  • Good job. Since it's not very far below the surface, is the old overflow pipe going to be a hazard to anyone jumping or falling into the pond? Seems like some kind of marker would be safer.
