I figured this was a little shady from the beginning, website that had pictures of my cousins jobs and equipment from Canada , and now looking back I don't understand how a small job like this would force you to pack up the 3 x 336 e, 349e, 330, d6, 140h, a35 rock truck ,and 750 j that you said you owned? I'm thinking this person just wanted to play along in the sandbox .

I don't think this is one bit funny, I hate to see a company go out of business for lack of good leadership. You don't have experience in dirt, get it. Hire a good controller/ lead man and office personnel to run and teach you the business.

Some guy with a lot of seat time on big iron will teach you the working parts. The controller will run the biz till you're ready to take over. Give it five years and yourself 10,000 hrs moving dirt and you'll see what I mean.

Quitters never win, winners cant quit.

Best of luck to you whatever you decide.

We have private business reasons that the website was pulled down. This was not the only project the company was working on

Whoever bid that job should have been fired awhile ago.

I agree with the mud mats though. If there isn't a bottom I would just dig a deep hole and keep pushing/bailing to that. Or somehow set up a conveyor system to carry the spoil to the designated area. Looking at it and sighing isn't going to get it done.

I think our best option now is a suction dredge, like we tried before. Lake levels are up over 5' that's plenty of water for a suction dredge to get in there and do the trick.
If anyone knows of a dredging company please let me know

I would scrap the suction idea. There are 4 flood wall projects going on near my shop and a new pipeline going in along a hwy by my brothers house. The pipeline is running right through the marsh. Due to the rain and high tides the water in the canals and marsh are 4-7' above normal. Has it stopped the guys from working NO.

Becuz they are using the right equipment
I'm sure you can find a marsh excavator or a company that can put a set of pontoons on one of your machines. These badboys will float in just water and are at home in the mud.
