I really love those led light bars the led work lights in general are amazing as well. they give so much light in a relatively small compact durable package. I am trying to get my boss to put all led lights on all of his snow removal equipment skids loaders and trucks and we will be putting some rigid lights on the new skid when it comes in to try it out. I bet you have already answered this question but what brand light is on your machines? great pics the walls look like they were meant to be there.

I don't use rigid industries lights.... too many people that think they can steal them quick and rigid are too expensive to replace if someone does. The light brand I use is Totron. You can get a 20" Bar that's 9600 lumens for 150 bucks shipped. A 30" bar is around 220 shipped IIRC and that's over 14k lumens.

Never had a problem with any of my Totron bars.


Thanks for the compliments on the walls! They do kind of blend in with the landscape.

Tracks look a little ruff on the 235.........
Also I know you've said in the past you work by yourself, but do you hop out and run the skid or is there another operator there. Just wondering cause if it's just you than how the hell do you find the time to get these walls finished so fast

A huge rock slipped out of the grapple and hit the shoe and broke the bolts. I just picked up the new bolts tonight after work. I hop out and run everything, pack, jumping jack all myself so its done correctly and the way that makes it easier for me to stack the next row. After doing it for thousands of hours I'm pretty efficient at it. I had 26 hours in the 235 and 9 in the T770 placing the imported sand and packing everything. Those hours are besides the 28 hours I spent actually placing rocks. It took me 5 work days to get it done.

If I had someone else in the Bobcat they would have a lot of nothing to do all day, I do almost everything with the excavator. I just rested the bucket on the wall to give some size perspective. I don't trust most people behind a wall with the CTL. If you're not careful and catch the fabric with the bucket it can rip and makes it possible for sand to get through eventually.

Trust me, my Dad has tried to get me a helper many times, I'd rather work by myself 99% of the time. The few instances I need a helper I'll have a guy from the block crew come out and help for half the day.

Plus I like getting out of the hoe every once and awhile.
