    That's right. It's a dance studio and they only have 12 parking places. well sometimes they have 150 pleople there and parking was a problem so thats why were digging out a hole to park in.

    Dozer does awsome, I was going sideways on a 2:1 slope with no sliding.

    well today we finished hauling the bulk of the dirt, I've moved roughly 3500 yards in just in under 3 full working days.
    It was freaking cold today! 16 degrees this morning and never got above freezing all day

    Nice looking job :drinkup:

    Sure nice working with dirt :laugh:

    The picture of the dozer on the side hill looks safe enough its just tough on the lower back and the butt cheeks :dizzy:

    So are they going to hydroseed the hill ?

    I think were going to mulch part of the hill and seed/ straw the rest.
