Alright now plan "B" seems to be working pretty good. It's been me and the volvo swingin mud for the last two day and I've made some progress. First I cleared off the shoreline, all the trees and bushes. Then I dug out a channel along the shore line to store the mud and extend the shoreline out.
Tomorrow My buddies tracked off road dump truck should arrive so I can use it to haul the mud to the other storage site

playing in the mud some more



I'm making some progress.





Filling up with fuel.


Another end of a good day.

Looks good. Dumb question, but do you ever have issues with bucket cylinder rod seal being exposed to mud? I know you guys dig a lot of ponds and I'm sure they see a lot of water and mud, curious if you have any issues.

We've never had a problem with it, obviously you don't want to rap the cylinder up with mud all the time, but every now and then want hurt it. our last machine we sold had over 7000 hours and the bucket cylinder did not leak a drop.

Nice. I've never encountered those conditions, just curious as to how it works out.

Here's another good question, how in the hell did you take the first pic, I don't see no foot prints in the butt deep muck?
I know this was asked sometime ago on another previous mud mania job, but there doesn't seem to be anything you can grab on, and jumping that distance is impossible.
