Cornell's Rock Walls and more Picture Thread

Hey everyone, I've had many people ask me about my thread that was deleted. I had it removed because many thought it was an advertisement for a product instead of a place for pictures so they skimmed over it. I had it deleted to start a new one with a new name. Around the same time an individual brought a lawsuit against the company I work for along with many people in my family including me so I held back on starting a new thread. I don't want to go into it any further than that and I won't be answering anymore questions about it; hope everyone understands.

Since that thread started the company has gotten some different equipment.

Traded the Case CX75SR in for a Doosan DX85-3, it's got a hydraulic Geith Coupler and a Towtem ASG50 Rock Grapple.

Traded the Case CX160 in on a Doosan DX235LCR with a 54" heavy duty bucket, Geith Hydraulic coupler and a Towtem ASG72 Rock Grapple with dual rotating motors and the buckets are built to my specs.

Still have the Doosan DX180 with the ASG60 Towtem and 48" Rock bucket

We traded the T770 I use for a new one, traded the T750 on another T770 and bought a S770 as well.

Some pictures before they got all muddy and dirty:

Great new thread, hope all is eventually resolved with the lawsuit. Awesome pics; but if I may very respectfully give you some advice, I would seriously consider removing the pictures of the worker in the hole. Not trying to be a d!ck but that could end up being more trouble you don't need. Keep up the great work and pics.

Good to have this thread going again! By one of your photos I see that you've also gone into the home appliance business.

Glad to see you posting pics again. Really impressed how y'all care for your equipment. Every time I see one of excavators it reminds me I need to tint the cab on my tractor.

That's me in the hole. The service was supposed to be 5 feet in the ground acording to city record not 11'. The master plummer was there and I didn't have time to get a trench box. There's a reason I dropped the bucket and stick down there.

All those appliances were in that 1100 sq ft house. It was crazy.

It all looks nice when its new. I waxed everything this winter so it seems to stay cleaner.

We've had so much rain this year its insane. Finally had a rain day yesterday, first of the season. We're so busy I've just been working through the mud.

Water rushing over a 6' wall I built and over the road to another wall I built.





Another one



Soft ground. I started out sitting on top of it.





I finally got to use mud mats for the first time. I love them!

Found a 30'x80' barn buried on that demo job. A lot of fun that was to dig up.





Water table was right there too















Modular wall. We replaced a wall that blew out.... 2 6 foot walls with no reinforcement behind them.













First set of tines made it through 4 years of rock abuse







New ones!





Gave these people a back yard. The big wall was built 3 years ago by us.















Another back yard I made usable



Rain



Backfilling power and gas trenches during the winter makes for fun surprises in the spring





















I found 6 baby racoons and kept them until they are old enough to live by themselves. I named this one Bandit and the other ones are all named from Smokey and the Bandit. haha



Before paint got rubbed off the 235 Towtem
