i would call my buddy who pours walls and ask him but he will turn it into a big long talk about how poured walls are really the hardest trade to learn and how important he is. what a pile.

LOL - good one Rusk'er!

We also do excavating and install septic systems. We have a house that will be ready for a septic system in November. The only way to access the site is via a crawl excavator. And it's not our first Only thing is, I rent one, have no need to buy one!

Folks, it's a tradition here at LS to mess with Rusk-a-roni when he starts these picture threads! No harm is intended. I like Rusk, and his work looks good.

This forum would be boring if we didnt pick on him when he posts his pictures! he's used to it!

it means its hard concrete!

I just poured a slab on a $750,000 home, and it only spec'd 3000psi concrete.

3.5k is tough! good going on not skimping on the materials.

But if you could find other work for a fullsize excavator and had enough septic work would it not be cheaper to buy one? We are renting equipment right now and if we could find some more work we would buy some equipment...
