If you had a blade on that excavator like a bladerunner, would it be helpful for your type of work?

Do you have to sort rocks or do you just pile up a supply and pick from them?

Very impressive, as always!

It's not staking the sod or at least the "sod staples" we use aren't seen of course. LOL

I wouldn't want a blade on something that big. A smaller ex like our DX85 it helps a ton with stability.

Don't really sort rocks on a site, mostly just in my head. Sorting them takes time and there isn't much advantage in it for me. I usually just assess what I have at a glance and call the supplier and he brings what I ask for. We also got the next addition of the development so if I have too many rocks I'll just bring them to the next wall. Having a good selection helps. Sometimes for smaller walls I end up using every rock. Sometimes I break them too if everything I have doesn't work or they are too big..... it took some experimenting but I know which rocks will break if I drop them correctly and from the right height. Too high and they just shatter into tons of pieces.
































Should be done with the rest of this wall by next week.

Yeah you don't realize the scale until you stand by it. And those bottom rocks are buried 3' in the ground. Pictures don't really do them justice, especially the size of some of the rocks.
