I did on Gabion basket wall job, for a damn spill way. Used my kobelco 135sr to set and fill baskets. Used a Takeuchi TL130 to fill a bedding box (or stone boat) and dug the 4"-8" limestone out from there. I think we built 23 baskets of varying sizes,
3◊3◊12 / 3◊3◊9 / 3◊3◊6....if memory serves me correct, it took about 45 minutes for one guy to build one basket. We set the baskets and filled them in about 2 days time, with2 laborers and 2 operators. But I was working from above the baskets. We had a Geo-textile fabric behind the baskets. We then poured 26 yards of concrete (flowable fill?) behind the baskets and filter cloth to to fill in the gaps behind the wall where we could not get the baskets tight to the vertical areas under the spill way.
