Chris, the drone shot before and after really help! I think where you crossed the road (at the top and said you might put in some rock and a 6" pipe) is essentially the high point on the property. Would be interesting for you to draw in a arrow or two on the last drone flight to say which way the water is running. Very dramatic to see how watery it was before and how usable it looks now. Great example of what you can do.

What's the purpose of the pond? Someplace for water to drain to? Just to have one?

I could do projects like this all day every day. When I look at my own property and go back to what is was prior to my wife and I buying it and working on it to now it's a great feeling. What started out as 35 acres of "wild" or "natural" forest has turned into our home "compound" out in the woods. The clearing, running the chainsaw and burning was hard work, but to me it's my "therapy" to get away from the nonsense of today's world.

Love your videos! I haul a 35 gallon water tank in my pickup, with a pump up lawn and garden sprayer and I use them to give my equipment a field douche.

I don't know the landowner's intent for the pond, but if they have fish in mind, 5 foot isn't deep enough. Round these parts we call a 5 foot body of water a swamp. Great job of draining the area and the clearing. That's going to make a really nice building site, nice work!

Great attitude towards your task, your work and your equipment. That was a superb reclamation job Chris. I'll bet the land owners are over the moon with the drone footage. The difference is amazing. What a great skill.
Absolutely great! You did a great job but your vision and abilities are what made this a successful operation. Been fun watching, thank you!

much as i love your channel Chris.30 minutes of a dozer going back and forth is kind of like watching grass grow.

Your knowledge of the terrain & how to explain WHY, is one of the many reason's why your UZblock channel is inching closer to 500,000. & I always enjoy your videos, Thank you.

Was hoping the drone shots might show the general area better. Seems such a different environment compared to the previous steep hill house lot! Is this flat land in a river delta?! As for the "pond", looks like you had almost all the dirt you need for a dam in the Gator and Dozer tracts!!

Going to be a beautiful location when you’re done!! Always enjoy pond videos so I can’t wait! It will be really interesting seeing how you will just move the dirt into a nice large but low mound that will make a great horse pasture or anything like that. Really, really nice project Chris. Just 2 machines and not so much time and all that’s been completed. Very impressive!!

Always hard to get the tracks clean, a man was killed locally a couple of years ago, he had lifted one track and was running that track while shovelling but the track must have caught him and pulled him in - so stay safe Chris.

Have they called you to widen and deepen the Suez Canal yet? Probably 3-day job for you.

@Letsdig18 Why cant you use the pond dirt to lift up the house lot ? if i were to build a house in a swampy lowland id look forward to raising the houselot higher to have some dry high ground and a nice view couldnt you make a gently sloped hill with the material so the house lot gets risen up by 5 to 6 feet with gentle slopes on all sides id talk with the real estate owner abaut the possibility of - if you already have to haul it around why dont use it on raising the house lot ? would save time and money clearing 2 acres just to spread out dirt and be a ""long therm investment if the ground slopes away from the house itll never have a problem with drainage and standing soil-moisture for dry houses on stable ground hold longer

Have you ever thought about getting an Open Bottom Grapple from WR Long in Tarboro NC for your Skid Steer? We use them on our tractors and they sift the sticks and limbs out for cleanup (Ours is hurricane cleanup). They are AMAZING. I don't see that you own anything open bottom like that. Just a thought.
thomas leonard
Chris, having noticed that you like to take care of your equipment, have you considered buying a portable pressure washer trailer, they have a washer and tank mounted on a trailer that you can pull behind your pick-up!
Rob Bridges
Rob Bridges Oy oldin
Is that the main reason for cleaning the tracks? Some guys never clean their tracks. Other than cold weather and freezing them up. I pressure wash mine once a year. What do you think?
Mary Schillinger
THAT was totally awesome. From start to finish. It was amazing how fast it drained and started to dry up. You are a master at what you do.
adrian cartlidge
A job well done Chris, great video.
timmy frierson
That’s just amazing on how those ditches drained all of that water out of there but anyway Chris another fine job and I just want to say thank you for taking us along with you every day on your journey to work because it gives an old fart like me something to do every morning when I’m drinking my coffee because I am retired and I look forward to watching your videos every morning but anyway brother you and John and yawls family stay safe and keep the videos coming man oh and I was wondering did y’all get that pond dredging job where you went and rescued the excavator that was sunk??
David McLean

I’m curious about the drainage offsite. Anyone get pissed when that water left that tract of land, or was there natural drainage to carry the water? Awesome job!

I don't remember where I saw it but somebody I know had a massive amount of water he had to drain on his land one spring so he got a fence post auger and bored holes below the clay and man did that water disappear it went down those holes in torrents till it was gone, he had 3 feet on 5 acres and he said it was going to be a mosquito hatchery if he didn't get rid of it and the water dried up fast.

OMG, how did he learn to DIG so fast with a shovel???
Dozer needs a inspection before it blows a rod through the block, I would trade it in for a CAT, we had a cat dozer from the 60s old D6 that thing pushed alot of dirt and its probably still running today
We pulled it out of the weeds where it was sitting for 20 years it almost fired up and ran away on us
Panger Docloss
Amazing! If I had done that work, I think I might have brought along a few extra drone batteries so I could keeping looking at it over and over and over... Thanks for doing the videos. I wish I had an excavator and a bulldozer!

I love hearing a dozer have to pin it's ears back a little once in a while.

Any dredging jobs in the near future?
Double Dog Dare
I’d spread the topsoil from the pond over the property to raise it up help with any flooding that could occur over a hundred year cycle. Nows the time since your going to have available and not far to carry, I’m sure the owner would appreciate a little higher grade.

Nice job mate! I like your drone shots, but would be great to see a bit more context (ie, wider shot to show the locale). 👍

Warren Bridges
Another great job.. The amount of pride you display on your videos, weather it's the company's work or your own, is very impressive. Also the care you take of the equipment you operate weather your own or the company's is something that far too few operators display. Great work.
Dave Hicinbothem
Amazing how you can step onto a fully wooded project like that and form an image of where the low spots are, how to get it to drain, etc. How long does that take to form a plan? I'd be walking in circles for days...
S M Sabri Ismail
I suspect his before drone videos helps him form that plan. He didn't show the before view of the drone shot at 34:49 but I suspect he may have had similar views with his drone before he started. In his day 1 video of this project, I remember he mentioned one tip. Where there are only small trees, are likely low spots, trees don't like to grow in wet areas.
