Nice work! The basements seem more shallow than what we dig here. Are those split entry homes? Here all basements are have 9' walls and 10" footings, so we end up about 8' in the ground usually.

that's how it is around here. this house has a 9'4" wall but the builder kept it out of the ground so theres no dirt to haul off

When youve done it this long without one i guess you just get used to it that 48" bucket gets a pretty big bucket. My grandpa used to do it with a crawler loader and my father the same and with a excavator. Figure of we've gotten buy for 65 years with out it. Must be doing something right lol.

So you have a bad day and then you find the perfect stress reliever? That's such a clean job it's ready for junior to put a swimming pool (ice rink) in.
