Works like a breeze


Sounds more like an excuse for you to stay in the machine instead of out there pushing staples...

Hey, I don't blame you, lol. Looks good - interesting job.

Maybe a dumb question... But what did you achieve here?

Looks like you may have put a road on top and used this to stabilize the ground off the embankment?

I'm just not sure what the gain is over straw and seed and plants?!?

Its called state work


Sometimes you get paid to think, Sometimes you get paid to do.

Im getting paid to do this, if I didn't someone else would. Personally I think this is a waste of money, regrading with some extra dirt and another section on pipe would have made the slope less steep and been fine. But this is what the engineers wanted, this is what they get!

I bet you like the rate pay. All state work in New York is rate pay. So my shovel guys get around $35 hr and operators get $45 an hour. This pay is mandated by the state so you wonder why public works cost twice as much as private. I am not complaining if we have the work and my guys sure don't complain.
