Actually Mr. Marc, a 250 bucket vs a 190 bulk bucket both = 1 yard buckets. Now, if a regular 190 bucket was being used you would get no where quick and I don't think it would have been favorable to use a tooth bucket haha.

Where have you been hiding? I need to come see you when things get caught up.

[QUOTE=tthomass;3569945
We're good on the drainage, no issue with county. They've been doing it like this for over 50yrs. We actually dug up some of an old system...........concrete pipe! The system we did has probably 1,300-1,500 feet of pipe. A lot of that is 6" and all SCH 40. Real fun stuff to work with since it bends so easy. [/QUOTE]



Jus be careful with that. There are many practices that have beenn done for 76 years that are now illegal. In the VA city where we worked, yep there WAS a pipe running through the curb that was installed in the 1950's. However, that practice has been since outlawed and only drywells are now required. If it's a county owned road, you're probably fine. If it's a town or city owned street - you could have problems. Make sure when you're there working you park the truck(s) infront of that area of curbing so as the inspector is passing by, he/she doesn't see it . And at night park the skid steer along the curbing so that a jealous contractor can't see it when he/she is returning home in the evening

Just to emphasis how codes change - last year we damaged a brick window well. The ground was wet and the weight of the excavator pushed a rock that was below the surface of the soil, and when this happened the rock destroyed the 40 yr old brick window well. Basically a 4 hr repair. But nope, we couldn't do that! The city has a code that when a window well is damaged you must replace with basement window with a window that a person can crawl out of. AND.....the replacement window must not exceed a certain height from the basement floor! So that 4 hr brick repair job turned into a $4,800 claim to our insurance company!

Now one is probably thinking "hell just repair the brick and move on, no one will ever know". Not that easy when there are neighbors that are contractors and familiar with the codes and jealous that they're not doing the work.......
