What a fast job using the dozer. This was a piece of cake. Just watched a pond clean up from 2016 you were in 6 plus feet of mud losing the mats and talking to the excavator. You do love your work.

You know you're a letsdig18 junky when one of Chris's vids comes up in your feed. You clic on it and see you've already clicked like but watch it again as you can't remember watching it because you've watched so many of them. Like this time for me today.

Why do so many people have ponds in this area? Is it for swimming, boating, fishing, fire fighting, etc? Just curious, I have never seen so many ponds.

I’m a novice when it comes to operate equipment . I have a cat dozer and excavator., Kubota skid steer and mini X on the farms. Using all for general farm and clearing land I learn a lot in watching how you operate. Very informative. Thanks a bunch

Is this pond deep enough to not winter kill
Mark Schuster

I had a 5 acre pond on my farm and it was spring fed in the rainy seasons ground water but always had algae problems. I put bubblers in around the pond. Then lined it with 2” rip rap. Tried to put a white silica sand beach in but that was dumb. That lasted a year. There is a ton of maintenance if you want to keep a pond looking like a golf coarse pond. Otherwise ducks and other things bring in cat tails et . They take over fast. After 5 years I gave up maintanence on mine. I had to work. It grew over real fast. Heart breaking.

Will your pond need a liner? One 4xcavator in our area who started a huge project in the 80s put 3 0r 4 ponds in this subdivision, took a lot of clay away, the biggest pond doesn’t hold water. The home owners pay a huge electric bill every year to have a pump keep running through a 12 “ pipe. If it stops in 2 days the pond is only a cou-LR feet deep. Do you compact the clay

2 things. On long repeat I’ve jobs spread up the tape once in a while to 4x. When at regular speed you gotta pretend I’m sitting or standing next to you. I’ve operated machines for a long time but pretend I’m an apprentice and talk to me tell me what your doing and why if a situation changes tell me why. By the way most pro you tubers over dub the video after editing, then they talk. This way you don’t lose concentration while working. Just trying to help. My buddy owns a 4th generation excavation road building and sewer company in WISCONSIN I wanna help him start doing this.

Don’t envy who gets to clean your tracks. I can tell just by looking at the video, there is the trash mud/stinky mud full of rotting organic materials. But then you strike gold with the clay underneath great work brother! Been watching you for three years solid now.

That new thumb sure looks nice. What are you doing with the loads you are hauling out? Can it be mixed with topsoil or is it part of the clay liner?
Brian Makoviney
Hey there Chris. Can't really believe you call yourself an equipment operator. You wasted so many moves pushing dirt and muck around, you almost wore it out. If you truly had any inclination, you would have hogged what material needed to be removed, scraped the darker muck and clay, and make a borrow pile next to the pond. Finish all the grade in the pond. Then bring in a smaller material and Debi screen, which then you could have lined the whole of the pond,which would have lined that pond so a person would not really ever have to worry about it leaking through that clay. Then would have talked the owner to let the left over waste rock grinder tailings out about 10 or 15 feet. Then pee gravel starting at about 10 feet outwards from the to the high level water line, down into the tailings. Then finish grade around the pond. That way if the owner or his kids or grand kids, etc.etc.etc. in case they want to wade in and get their feet and legs wet , to taking a swim, with never having to get themselves muddy and makes for a nice edge around the water in the pond with giving them a nice place to swim, play or just having a spot to have a picnic to watch who's in the pond. Don't worry to much, keep on practising all the time, and one day you will be able to call yourself an equipment operator.

Oh and a ditch pump. So you fill tote before they drain pond
dave halloween
What would be useful is a trailer with one or two 500 gal plastic tote you see with cage around it and a high pressers sprayer . So we hen your done with a job like g to his you nknock a lot of the mud of at side of pond not your construction yard.
lenny108 Oy oldin
39:26 seems before filling the pond with water they should cover the pond bottom with black Geomembrane Plastic Sheeting so that the water level always stays the same. Then there can be bank planting with habitat-typical aquatic plants
Reginald Workman
Why do i never get that nice rockless dirt when I’m on the dozer. Cannot escape the rocks in Texas hill country!
Richard Schipper
It's a shame there wasn't a bit extra $$$ to dig a channel 2 to 3' deep 10 to 15' wide right at the water's edge. That would have really helped keeping the algae under control. The is a really good job and nice pond. Wish it was mine

Chris said the pond wasn't that deep. I though from looking at the slope on the back of the dam and that gulley that the pond would be pretty deep along the dam. Looks great now that its cleaned up. 👍

Think of what you would like to see in you own pond/dam. 1 overflow and and an intake system 2 different kinds of pond plant life 3 floating logs and inersha 4 natural pond food 5 turtles ,frogs, toads, pond insects 6Maybe a long term airator. Nothing that could be considered junk or polution .
