I love watching you work the machine: a man who can walk, talk, chew gum, rub your belly and pat your head all at the same time. My guess is if you ever decided to learn how to fly a helicopter, you could solo in two weeks.

You back up those machines so awesome!! I don't know how you do it. I've been mesmerized watching a couple videos about this here, the other dam you did nicely then it had like 11 inches of rain and you had to redo it. Also watched you demo that old cement/wood bldg by the cemetery during my marathon for the past few hours. I still haven't gone to sleep! I really enjoy all your videos I've watched and thankful you have many more!! You have taken the time to provide us entertainment as well as document your work and teach others who might be interested in pursuing a career in your field. You are a master. I get dizzy just watching sometimes. Not a height fan for sure. Awesome video!!

Genuinely curious as to how much this type of work costs?...is it a per day cost or project work? I’m in Australia, so not looking for a quote (unless you want to travel..😏)...but it seems that the US has plenty of need for this type of earth works... great video, awesome work...and if I ever needed a pond / pond dam built in Sydney I’d give you a shout!

Pretty sure if I tried this I'd have one piece of equipment buried up to the roof, one on its side in two feet of water and the third on fire; the only question being which is which.

Making it Happen
An interesting fact is that the dump truck in this design was invented by Bolinder Munktell, 1966. The first model was called "BM Grus Kalle" "Grus Kalle" was a new technical concept for its time. Above all, it was used for transports of, among other things, shaft masses, gravel, concrete, etc. in difficult terrain. Large wheels, frame steering, all-wheel drive and differential locks together provided excellent conditions for good off-road accessibility. Among other things, you could use so-called anchorage in very sunken ground. This means that you alternately turn right and left and make the machine move like an eel. History DR 631 is the world's first all - wheel drive articulated dumper. It was manufactured in collaboration with Bolinder-Munktell and LIVAB in Braås. This dumper has a production number in 2014 and was manufactured in 1966. DR 631 was manufactured during the years 1966-1969. It was dethroned by the successor DR 860 which began series production in 1967.

@Making it Happen Most your rocks was probably grinded by the Inland Ice cover to pure blue clay and ended in my region further down south! Haha! Also nice to make ceramic and bricks, but not to plow!
Making it Happen
@Uppsalahazze Markstedt There is only clay in very few places, but it is clay that can be shaped into sculptures and burned. The most common are moraine, rocks and sandy soil. The ones that grow best are pines and birches. I have admittedly been able to grow some potatoes, but that sandy soil is mixed with horse manure.

Hmmm, doesn’t water and ash create a kind of waterproof material? Could one use that to “dress” a pond dam? It probably needs to harden in the sun first... or maybe I remember incorrectly from watching primitive technology...

Can someone help me understand why Chris doesm't turn around at the end of a run and grade in the opposite direction rather than reversing all the way to start again?

Boy oh boy, when you do a remodel you do all kinds of cool upgrades. Proper slope, proper overflow, debris gone underground or burned. This is looking like a whole new dam. Of course that takes a customer that is willing to pay for it done right instead of functional on the cheap. Well done Chris. PS Next you get to play in the mud!!!

To run that fast with a dozer, you really have to be on top of it. It is very easy to make a mess when you do not know what you are doing.
Well when you have a bucket the size of a dumpster you can move alot dirt real fast. Mine is just a baby bucket compared to yours.

Buck Oy oldin
I have run farm tractors with all sorts of implements and grain combines starting when I was about 12 years old on the farm. I'm now 59. I bought my first dozer about a year ago. An old John Deere 450G. Obviously I'm just learning how to dig trees and push dirt. But even so, I think I know enough already to say there is a definite talent involved here. A lot of it comes from experience it seems, but I think some from born talent too. I don't think everyone can be successful running heavy equipment. After watching a lot of your videos its clear you are a pro at this. Its hard to see from a video clearly what you see on the site. But I have learned so much from your videos. I thank you. And I hope to see many more.

When you said that the ash pile was so dry it wouldn't absorb the water, it got me to remember what a problem it was after the Hayman Fire here in Colorado back in 2002. This will explain it better than I can..... Hydrophobic soil - soil that is hydrophobic - causes water to collect on the soil surface rather than infiltrate into the ground. Wild fires generally cause soils to be hydrophobic temporarily, which increases water repellency, surface runoff and erosion in post-burn sites. Soil dispersion due to sodification causes similar problems. You could take a bottle of water, pour it out on the soil and it would run off without getting the soil wet in any way.

That original dam did look mighty narrow for the size of the pond. 3 feet or more ➡ for every 1 foot ⬆, as a rule of thumb, is what I was told years ago, for slope. Never had that confirmed or denied by anyone that build ponds on a regular basis, though. I've seen a few that really were too steep. Impossible to repair a wash properly, trying to walk the loose stuff in would have been like trying to go down a cliff. Especially with a flat shoe trackloader.

With all respect, is there any chance we could get a video that is not filmed in “Standard” or “Activity” mode on the GoPro? Maybe try “Cinematic” mode which will smooth out the fish-eye effect? I hate complaining because your videos are amazing, I’ve just been watching for about a year now and I’m starting to get more interested in how you make grade. It’s hard to see with the curvature of the lens on the GoPro. In either case keep up the excellent work!

The older dozer probably has less government-mandated pollution crap on the engine than the new dozer. That probably makes the difference.
