yeah these are dry pond. the riser box has a 6" low flow hole in the bottom. this way when a big storm comes and fills the pond it will slowly release the water into the creek instead of one massive wash of water.

Finally a job close to home, whopping 1 mile work commute... gotta love it


Got an old pond on a subdivision thats going to start building some new houses. they want it filled in so they will have yard and not a wetland area.

pond before








took the 210 over to a 10k yard stockpile of dirt on another subdivision the owner also bought. piles sitting on 2 house lots and they want it gone.


king of the world!

mucking away is the worst job going in a machine and the lowest rung on the ladder over here, i went out on hire doing it for a week was so boring a constant stream of wagons and never ending pile. was so pleased to get done and get away.

chris with the mowers why the rotary arm type as opposed to the flail, we have both for our 6620 deere in 8' width but we use the rotary arm type only for grassland topping and then use the flail for the awful jobs with the crap hidden in the grass.

do you shear many of the shear bolts while mowing

yeah it can make for a long day but it was fine with me I like running the 210 plus I was having fun making avalanches with the stock pile.
as for the rotary mowers... their cheaper and it works for what we do.


Started loading bright and early yesterday morning, ended up loading out 162 trucks. figured around 2250 yards moved with 4 trucks on a 4 mile round trip haul. I was busy...


















hard at it again today till it rained, got in another 120 more loads. still need a few more to finish out

Nice set of pic Chris, looks like you could have used that, what was it, a 5130?
I think that's what that shovel was you were playing on at the auction.

I know, sometimes it's nice to have a couple days of mindless easy work

When I load trucks I just turn Pandora on on my phone and listen to music/comedians all day. No jumping out of the machine 50-100 times a day like usual
