Hi Guys
This is a new one for me, I have a customer who lives on a lake. She wants me to bring in sand and dumo on her beach and spread it 20 feet into the lake. First question I have is how would I move it from the beach into the lake, is there a method so you have don't have to hand shovel it into the water? Any tricks or advice would be great.

Regards Mike

15ton trackhoe should do the trick...but i would check with the local government/permit office...they may have a problem with you running equipment out into the lake with all these tree-huggers now-a-days

The only sand you can put in Michigan lake is mason sand. I usually put it on the ice in the winter and it falls in as the ice melts works really well. so you'll have to use an excavator know. I see your in my area you if you need anything PM me and ill give you my number:waving: :waving:
