    I'll have to dig the gopro back out. Maybe a reason to buy a new Hero 3 for some videos :laugh:


    Here are the light pictures of the 235 after I just installed them.

    You do some amazing work. I've got a cousin who lives around the twin cities. He said he has seen y'all's work and knows your machines, becuz they are the ones with the tinted cabs.

    Thanks! Yeah not many tinted Doosans around with Towtems.

    Finished the first side of the ped tunnel. Also there was a huge piece of cement onsite and their 349e Cat couldn't get it in its bucket and the DX235 picked it up and liftes it into a high sided trash/demo trailer. The guys couldn't believe it and I was pretty surprised too.

    Had to move the grapple for the DX180... the ASG72 makes it look so small.

    Nice looking work as always! I like the way you use vertical and horizontal placement of the rocks. It really draws the eye.

    How do you like the redi rock compared to your usuall rock walls. My cousin is a manufacture and owns the rights to the Hudson valley/ New York City area. I personally love them, did 2 driveway retaining walls in December last year. Only problem is the things are so damn expensive. I priced a wall last month 160'x20' tall after block and the caps it was $86,000 just for blocks, didnt include geo grid or backfill material.

    I've never built one. The other crew does the redi rock and SRW stuff. Although it can't be tough, other than getting the base level. It is super expensive though.

    That 160x20 wall would be a lot cheaper in boulders even with geogrid and backfill. I looked at some pricing since I had no idea and a boulder wall would be less than the redi rock is just in materials. Depends on the site location and use of the wall though.

    Awesome thread, love all the pics. Few questions.
    What do you use to haul all that equipment?
    What lazer/gps system do you use keep your walls level? Or is it all talent?
    Did you ever use a dozer to backfill?

    Thanks.
