  • I'm surprised to see you doing a culvert. I work for the county road dept and once a property installs the culvert when they first develop a property and we sign off on it, we become responsible for the maintenance and replacement of them. Did you lube the pipe up? A come along and chain works great to pull the pipes together.

  • I wonder do you ever get people's neighbours complaining that you caused their property to flood? I mean, you were careful here not to send too much water along all at once, but it seems to me that once you fix the flooding in one place it's going to re-appear at the next place that has a clogged culvert - all the water that was sitting on your client's property will instead be at the next property that has poor drainage. Of course, if that happens they should understand that it's only because of their own inadequate drainage but people tend to be good at somehow not understanding things that will require them to do some work!

  • Wouldn't it be better to drain it properly then come back when it's dry to grade and create the berm? That's what we would do up north.. No way you could finish a job with any grading with it being that deep full a water

  • Good Morning @ Lets Dig, I had some doubts as to how this project would turn out, ( because of all of the moisture, i.e. rain) If I was your customer, I would have been extremely and pleasantly surprised at how nice this job turned out. Your quality of work is absolutely awesome. Your skills on the excavator and skid steer are top level ! Then to top it off your narration and filming is excellent. I very much appreciate that you don't overlay your vids with music. I guess I'm old school but I'd rather hear the machine's sounds, even from inside the cab than music. Don't misunderstand me as I love to rock out when inside of the cab rather I don't like it in a video. I'm a 59 year young, retired farmer/ landscape co., owner. ( And yes, that's my last name too). I'm very impressed with your overall work ethic and knowledge. I subscribed. Keep up the great work that you do. Wishing you all of the very best. Warmest Regards from Arizona

  • No offense, but you talked too much in the beginning and were too repetitive in explaining the obvious. Thank God you started working without talking, bc I was about to leave. Try not to be a Cpt. Obvious! Just saying! 🤷‍♂️

A good equipment operator has to be an artist to visualize and create the vistas people want as well as having a knowledge of hydrology, material science, trees, and that doesn't touch operating and maintaining equipment. Thanks for opening my eyes

  • Let's Dig has incredible skills, and we are lucky to get to seem 'em. If Tak or Yanmar have anything to do with it, we Thank 'em too. ...That being said, you were getting the very last ounce of rip out of the hoe scraping off that hard pack over the culvert.. Frankly, tho the machine amazingly did it, i felt it was hard on the pins/tilt/coupler. If that was a full size hoe, that bucket would have been 7-8' wide and i don't think he'd have torqued it quite so much then. Just my Novice opinion. Next, cool to see him pull out the tiles, ignoring the thumb, that's old school digging and talent right there. My 3rd thing is, getting the pines needles, etc off the driveway... it would have taken longer prolly, but I feel that could have been back dragged with the toothbucket, effectively raking the brush, while leaving the driveway in tact. Why? The driveway surely has its share of oil spills, etc over the years. I'd have left that soil right there, rather than putting it in the woods. (it's nicely compacted anyway). Ok, surely some are sick of my (dumb?) little observations by now.. so as for the Last one~ After that crusher dust was down, presuming it was graded level and crowned, it would be nice if a vibratory roller hit it to fully pack it water tight. And THEN put down a nice thin layer of Bluestone on top. That would keep contractors (and everyone else) from tracking all the chalky dust indoors and everywhere. The courser stone on top would stay clean on top what with all the precipitation the place gets (but only after the stone dust was rolled hard to keep the stone from disappearing into it. I may be wrong, and likely am, but those are my observations. Always learn stuff here I Never could on my own, so thanks really much for showing "how it's done"-

  • gonna call regularly digging with the tilt bucket a venial sin.... sometimes you have to just do things though (usually we dig through compacted material that requires maximum dig force a deere 50 or bobcat 50 will put out on a 3 ft smooth edge bucket) I haven't had the need to really think about buying a tilt bucket, not for what we do.
