I'm kidding, but I think you knew that! A company next town over specialized in marine work, they have a 160 Volvo with a casson pounder, that stays pretty busy. One of the the operators was telling me when he was younger and it was going to be a hot day he would wear swim short to work and at lunch time he would jump right off the track and go for a swim!

I usually wear board shorts underneath my work clothes if it is real hot or if someone has to go in after something. What kind of marine work do they do, and what kind of driver is that?

Ron it took a while to get it moving and it wouldn't stop it at all, and no reverse, but make what you have work.

I know of a farm who uses a manure agitator on his old 790 Deere excavator, I wonder if you could rig up a propeller that runs off the auxiliary hydraulics on the excavators and use that?

I would like to tie my spuds into the aux hydraulics so it would be a one man operation and better for dredging. I also found some concept dredge cutter head attachments for excavators that are sweet

They do a lot of casson pounding for boathouses and docks, they build a few dams too. I've never seen the pounder up close but I am pretty sure its a vibratory type, it hangs off the quick coupler I guess. Next time I see them I will ask some questions.

Very neat. I would love to get into marine construction as I like boats and that a lot. I know by me they do a lot of dredging by pumping. Do they excavate up there or pump the mud?

Barge......I went through all your posts.....nice work and it looks like great fun. You mentioned environmentally friendly hydraulic oils.......are you using vegetable oils? Have you switched all the machines over? If so, do you notice any differences (other than price))?
