When they got home from work I told them what happened. They ended up contracting us to build a retaining wall the next day to bring grade up on the side of their house.

It all worked out.

Did bobcat give you someone else's machine to use? Looks like a Tervita sticker on the side of it.

That's a Bobcat of Dallas rental/demo machine. I will get a side shot of the machine next time I am on site.

After looking at every mud mat on the market we decided to go the old fashion way. . . we are going to lay down some mats and use our skid and mini ex to remove the material. Those two machines are the only ones that are light enough to operate over the mats with out sinking themselves and the mats.

We where there last week with a little yanmar clean out under docks, worked very well got in got out with not issues. I will get some pictures up

Needs more trailer!



Are you planning on doing the main dredging with a mini ex? What's the estimate on the yardage?

Moving that thing was like moving a Tonka truck LOL! But it worked well could operate right under the docks and hog the soil out quickly and easily.

We are going to use 2 cat 305.5 mini ex's with 36" buckets and 2 Cat 299D skid steers with bobcat dumper buckets

Sounds like you're going to be deficient in the haulage department? Are the 299's hauling all the way to the dump site?
