How are you able to get good compaction at 3ft deep without doing it in lifts?

When you level a pad or area, do you have some type of target for the laser on the machine and if so could you show how you use it with the machine? Thanks for the videos.

30 years later the stumps that were cut at ground level and buried under a few inches of dirt on my property are all mounds that make it impossible to mow with a ride on mower. Makes me want to throat punch whomever did that.

I appreciate these vids.. I've been doing excavation work for the past few years, but I'm recovering from cancer surgery back in January and watching these jobs kinda gives me a chance go "back to work" so to speak.. I really miss being in the seat.

At the end of the video, you were showing the finished pad and then turned around and said the house was going there (the area away from the pad). So, what is the pad for?

It's so weird hearing that you want clay where you want to build something.. where I live all the clay must be dug out so that frost wont affect it and it's replaced with sand.
derKarl 21 kun oldin
you might not think of mulching with a foresty mulcher but a tub grinder and produce actual mulch when clearing land... forestry mulchers are only good on brush and smaller new trees (and when they got plenty of power in their carrier machine) but a tubgrinder actually does produce biomass or plain mulch for reusing on site (or for composting reasons when you want to make your own topsoil) and yes you can clear land fast with mulchers (for short access or fire prevention reasons) but not for construction... but they are like oversized flail mowers... and most of them only cut down... not remove... the ones that can remove roots and stumps as well are basically dozers with a secondary powerpack on them that only exists of the mulcher head that can dig down like 10 inches while mulching... and those are not cheap to run

Grinding the stumps works fine if it's a yard and it's kept mowed. If you don't keep it mowed the suckers just sprout out and grow back up.

Hey Chris did y’all get the new pins and bushings put in the bucket on the 220 after you finish the animal shelter project I know you were saying that y’all had them and was going to put them in the 220 after y’all finish that old job but anyway brother another great video you and John and yawls family stay safe and keep the videos coming

I could feel that bucket tooth hit me in the head. Now I know what a tree sees just before it is pulled out of the ground. North Carolina is a beautiful place.

Mulching a field is like mowing a yard...it all comes back in a short while. Then you still got the stumps to deal with. A waste of time and money.

I definitely don't wanna just, " clear the air " if I want my land cleared. That seemed very sneaky to do that. Get somebody excited about a property. Then find out it's covered in stumps.

@StudSupreme yes it's almost always about the soil and what materials are available. Like here in the west where I'm at you will generally almost always hit good gravel anywhere from a foot to 3 or 4 feet below the topsoil so we almost always excavate to the clean gravel then backfill with good clean gravel (pit run) then top it off with 3/4 inch minus crushed gravel. It makes for a great base and also keeps from retaining surface water which we don't get much especially compared to what Chris gets most of our annual precipitation comes from snow in the winter. Also cost has a lot to do with it, we have a ample supply of rock and our gravel pits are usually not more than 1 to 10 miles apart. Our pit run is around $3 per ton and our 3/4 inch minus road base is around $6 per ton.
StudSupreme 21 kun oldin
Are differences in soil and terrain the critical factors, or is it just preferences?

Just curious; how many times do you figure you'll have to rebuild the trans on the skid steer from going back and forth grading? Seems like it would be a lot of wear. No insult, just not experienced at using one.

@Richard Schipper All hydraulic like a zero turn mower then? I thought maybe they were like cat dozers, or had a shuttle shift like a compact tractor.

This looks like a good job for a big dozer and a ripper tooth. Or the ripper tooth instead of the bucket. If only you had a drag line, then all problems would melt away like so many piles of brush.

Is there a reason you do more pads than foundations? Is the water table high preventing foundations? I’m from the Midwest and it is very rare other than commercial to see a pad.
