The fun never ends. Geo Web time


Found out again today That this is the second time this stuff has ever been used in NC, and guess who got to use it the first time.... ME! haha


2 days down, we got out 8000 SQ ft of it put out, tendons ( yellow strings) run through each peice 24" OC, rebar every 2' across and 4' down. (LOTS)

all thats left is to bury a deadman at the top of the hill connect all the yellow strings to it, backfill, and fix everything back









got tired of carrying rebar so i brought the long reach down to help speed it up

Rebar caps on them t-post and rebar would be a good thing. As steep as that is if someone trips, slips, or falls it would be a bad dealeeo.

I'm not sayin I'm just sayin. I've seen a guy live after being run through (falling on) a piece of 5/8" and getting cut off with a quickie saw and loaded on to the ambulance with it still in him. Makes you stop and think everytime you see an unprotected rod after that. Looks like a heck of a day no doubt climbing up and down that thing and I bet you don't forget things but once and have to go back after them.

Yeah all the rebar has plastic clips on the end to hold it in place which is pretty much the same thing as a Cap. as far as the T post they prolly should have something over them



So today we buried the deadman and connected all the tendons to it and then backfilled.







Ready to backfill tomorrow

the web is 6" thick so we will probably put about 7-8 inches of topsoil over it just because it will settle some and we dont want the web to show.

then we seed and install matting on the slope and also plant 80 saplings back along the bank

Things I like

Whole machine has a Auto Lube system, just push a button and every pin gets greased.

The tilt bucket is awesome as hell, you can grade anything with this

smooth and fast machine, very quiet, can't hardly tell from idle to wide open


things I dont

No radio? WTF??

You have to work at NASA to figure out how to cut the heat/ AC on.

to many buttons, I like to push buttons that I dont know what they do to find out. Theres some I wont push anymore

the little joysticks are small and have these triggers on the back that you aways bump and the machine does weird things.


At idle and in gear the swing likes to creep around??


Oh and the $400,000 price tag
If you need the manual for the machine, let me know. I have five of that machines brothers. They are a bit of a change from your Volvo.

Its neat stuff no doubt.

It sucks trying to walk in it until its all nailed and tired down. now that I'm getting dirt in it its nice.


Started backfilling today and covering in matting as we went



to keep from leaving foot prints all on the matting while we stapled it down I put my head to good use.

Works like a breeze
