Tall a$$ pedestal steps

Here are some pics of a set of steps we built using the pedestal method. These are the tallest I have built. I believe there are 7 skids of block in the steps alone. As you can see we intermixed EP Henry Coventry block with Versa Lok to save some money and give it some beef. There are also 3 pulls of geogrid in the steps as well.

It looks great...If I may ask, what is the difference between the pedestal method and building the stairs with just 2 or 3 submerged blocks per stair?

Looks great Chris. Did you compare the cost using Versa Lok vs. using Cov. Wall Plus? Just curious what the savings were.

The rise was 5 1/2' and the run was about 11'. The risers are the standard 6" and the tread is 12 1/2" with a 1" overhang. There are a total of 11 steps.

Now there's a perfect install......that really looks nice Chris. A job well done!!! We've got a Cat 262 and it's the best skid steer I've ever used. Glad we opted for the large machine, it's a huge difference.
