    Land owner needed crossing ,but also wanted (pond)water.With pipe!

    One machine did the job from start to finish.Cleared trees,removed old rusted out pipe,moved dirt,replaced with new 24" dual wall pipe(60 ft.) fill was about 12 ft. to top of crossing(pond) in the center of the crossing,tappering out to about 3 ft. on the ends.

    Not quite 200 ft. long.From toe of pipe,back slope to bottom of front slope fill was about 80ft. wide(again at the very center.)

    Had to deal with small area,mud, and saving of trees ! except the ones that need removed for the fill and pond area.I graded for the pipe.Since this was down on the bottom and no place to need extra dirt it was used only in the crossing..... wasted dirt.

    Made a nice two lane crossing just in case the deer hunters need to pass !!!!!!!!

    For you none believers you don't have to have????? it can be done with just one machine:usflag:

    MD....if that is a serious question.......here's a recap. On another post, there was discussion as to the best combo to use to dig a tank/pond and different strategy's and methods for getting it done. We were all giving this young kid who was thinking of doing the job ( his first job of any size I believe) all sorts of ways to skin that cat. Constructo just did this project and posted it, showing what could be done with just one machine........That's it in a nutshell. Hope that wasn't too much diarrhea of the fingertips.......

    well i am at loss for words :hammerhead: I did not read previous post like all the other hundred people who read this so lawnsite is not your own personal chat forum this goes out to the world so elaborate a little so us dummies can understand.

    Another thread or not, he was showing different ways to tackle a project. It doesn't matter if it had been discussed earlier. Everyone on here can learn something.

    Why the fuss? You sound like somebody took a leak in your Cheerios?
