little house pad filling and compacting
some deep footings. 120 tons of stone hauled in to fill these footings back to grade. seems to be an old borrow pit dug where this house needs to go and the ground was unstable
grading down a hillside so it can be landscaped
Are you doing anything with the track loader in the last footing pic or is that someone else's machine?
breaking cylinder ends off booooooo.
They are never the same after
wow now that should keep everyone working need them on every job site lol
ok time for some more picherrrs
started building a 2 acre pond
now heres a fun little project. Overflow pipe was in bad shape. water was flowing under the pipe instead of through the pipe. in some areas you could probably stand up under the pipe inside the damn it was that washed out!
engineers decided to excavate all the lose dirt from the front to solid ground, pour flowable fill (25 yards) then dig up and recompact the dirt around all the rest of the pipe
all was good till I poured the first 10 yards and then a random thunderstorm came up. 2 inches of rain in 30 minutes.... pond filled up in about 5 minutes. just long enough to build a dam and bust the spillway to save 2 days work from getting washed away.
then we had a defective remote on the compactor... it would runaway sometimes no matter what controls you pushed.
taking soil tests
I would not be happy....
Stuff like that overflow do you get asked to do by consulting engineers, or property owner etc? And how do you market yourself to them?
