How's the dozer do on that steep slope, any slipping, or anything?
That's right. It's a dance studio and they only have 12 parking places. well sometimes they have 150 pleople there and parking was a problem so thats why were digging out a hole to park in.

Dozer does awsome, I was going sideways on a 2:1 slope with no sliding.

well today we finished hauling the bulk of the dirt, I've moved roughly 3500 yards in just in under 3 full working days.
It was freaking cold today! 16 degrees this morning and never got above freezing all day


Making the last cut




I'm starting to get a hole!






This was a 3PM. I'm not used to this crap!



That's alot of fill




Pulling dirt away from the silt fence





Camera's just dont show how steep hills really are. I swear it's a 2:1 slope, you can bearly walk up it!

Nice looking job

Sure nice working with dirt

The picture of the dozer on the side hill looks safe enough its just tough on the lower back and the butt cheeks

So are they going to hydroseed the hill ?

I think were going to mulch part of the hill and seed/ straw the rest.
