So there was this field.



Then we got some yellow stuff.



We stripped some top soil



Local foreman got upset for not sharing my lunch




We dug here and there



We hauled some clay



The truck got stuck



We built a dyke around it.



20 hours later, job well done.

I'll have to get a picture of the burn pile and lovely hill we built and the ditch i failed at digging haha.

About half the area of the pond, and the whole fillsite area was birch/poplar/firewood

No problem

Metric **** ton, I have no clue. That clay is pretty heavy, we have 3 more to do next week, so I'll read a blue print or something. This is just for a sump for our water trucks.

Not signed in on Youtube. I always hear the Volvo's are the truck to run in 6by's, what flaws do they have(hours, powertrain,misc.)? No Terex?:)

Terex rock trucks only work on paved roads that are flat.
















Nah, they're okay if they aren't in high production or wet conditions and aren't seeing hours.

That volvo has 12,000 hours the box smokes a bit when it gets fired up.
