    The problem with a long reach is you cant even get out into the canal I will attach some pics of the satellite view, this view is old there is obviously no water in the location now as they have drained the lake 8 feet.

    What was your plan to load the material out? Where you planning on driving the rock trucks on that as well? Easy to say without seeing the job but a long reach bailin material to the 330 sitting on firm ground or closer to the shore wouldn't of worked better? Or leaving the water in the lake and having an excavator on a barge?

    The plan was to hog out the material load it into the haul truck and away to the dump location. We thought about two long reach machines but the problem still lays in the fact that the second you get off that green patch by the dump spot its mush.

    I would take a look at the long reach machines to bail material to each other and then to your 30 tonne to load. What is the approximate length down the canal you are going and how far from the mouth of the canal to the shore?

    Another option is using a super polymer absorbent , it may take a fair amount of it but it hardens up slop material pretty quick . I have used it to dry sediment out on retention ponds before we haul it.

    Company in North Carolina I believe produces it . I don't know in your area where to purchase, I can give you my Canadian Sales mans information if you need it. It comes in those large bags/totes that you lift with an excavator . For that size of a job your probably need. Tractor Trailer Load. I believe the manufacturers name is zappa tech .
