I use the compressor for cleaning out my radiators, airing up tires, running impact wrench to change teeth, and running other tools like a cutoff saw, ratchet, and a few times where I needed a small chisel.

Now that I'm thinking, if I had it to do over, I'd just figure out how to mount the 12 volt and keep it out of the weather. One option is inside a toolbox or under it. I have heard about compressors that fit under the hood and are powered off the motor.
There are winch setups that I've seen that have a small compressor built in. It probably won't run an impact wrench but it would air up tires or blow out a radiator somewhat.

Just some random pictures. Work is starting to pick up with the weather warming.



The latest job I've been working on. Repouring the cantilever and resurfacing the deck.


And digging a pool. Just waiting on it to settle some more before I pour the deck.

We've got all different kinds of sands and clays. This particular pool we hit solid clay about five and a half feet. But the sand on top was a sand clay mix. In other areas it's solid clay or sand for 10ft.

I wish it was mine.. all I've got is the tak mini ex and a bobcat.

Digging the pool is the only part of the job I sub out anymore. But he's the best around. for the price, quality and knowledge he brings to the job. I couldn't do it any cheaper.

But that same hole, he had a pretty good size hydraulic leak. It was going to shop as soon as he finished to have that fixed and some oil leaks, that it had been in the shop for before. But were never really fixed. In 2500 hours he's had two transmissions replaced. Along with those stupid leaks. He's always had a 410 jd for as long as I can remember. From what I understand he's primarily ran John Deere since the 70s with one other brand thrown in there a couple times..

So you take out the sand and pour concrete as a giant footer?
What do you do with all the spoil? Down here, sand is separated, if possible, and it valuable for horse properties.

we over dig the hole 3ft, width wise. Gives us room to walk around outside of the hole as we bolt together the steel panels and set the turn buckles that hold the walls up straight..

that three feet is then filled with roughly 6-8in of concrete sometimes more. I get a truck minimum of 5 yards so sometimes its really thick..


depending on the pool, the steel is set 6in higher than original grade. that way the pool is set up higher than just about anything around so no water rolls in. Plus that gives us a plus to get rid of a lot of extra dirt.

any dirt that isn't used in backfill or for grading off the yard will be trucked off or piled somewhere on site for the customer to use later..

Do you have problems with water getting under the cement or are you digging all the way to the clay?

I'd like to see some pics of the process. My mom wants me to build her a pool with a waterfall. Our ground has to have a liner of some type or it won't hold water. Concrete footer makes sense.
