  • Good to see the loader bring put to use and running! Btw, it may be easier next time to be driving as your dumping the rocks; that'll help spread them and eliminate the need for the big piles to push over.

  • Would it be possible to tailgate in some of that rock? Maybe put the truck in reverse so you're not driving on your fabric, but man it seems like you could save so much time if you could tailgate in some of that stone.

  • Awesome video, really keeps the spirit up while stuck in quarantine! That is one hell of a job, especially on your own, having to switch machines all the time. One question - wouldn't it be easier to use "spread chains"(we call them that i Norway anyway, you migh call them something completely different) on the hinge door on the truck, adjust them properly and just back up while spreading and spread them in front(well, behind you) as you go? Might be to wet/unstable ground for it tho, not familiar with american soil. We use that method on our trucks when building logging roads, but we have 4x4(or 6x6), raisable axles, full diff locks + an adjustable blade under the trucks aswell...

    Daniel H. RuudDaniel H. Ruud5 dager siden
  • Sorry if this is a silly question. When tipping the rock why not drive slowly backwards over it, would this not save you time when spreading it and save wasting rock at the edges?

  • Why are you not reverse dropping the rock? It would make things very neat and more efficient. Just a question. Not a criticism.

  • Should have made the road much wider, but I understand the financial constraints with that. That could always be added in the future. I'm also has problem with the lack of drainage along the road and the non-placement of a length of 8" or 10'" diameter schedule 40 PVC pipe for drainage and smaller for utilities across the road at strategic places. Placing that in later would destroy the fabric.

    • Why make it wider? It’s actually already plenty wide enough, It’s probably about 14 feet wide in most places, your vehicle is only eight

  • Would you use shale Matt? For base & everything if it was free? Been researching a little on it. Found loads of it on land I purchased last year. I don't want to do it twice if its a terrible plan though. Your land is looking awesome man! Slow and steady improving! You and Dirt Perfect got to do an interview for the people! He has mentioned you guys need to link up at least 2 times recently

  • Any reason you didn't set the tipper tail gate to a 8inch gap and drive forward and dump. Would have saved a bunch of spreading time.

  • So... 17 loads +1 in 2013? Is that a correct count? Nice that you have that 10yd dump truck, because easily the lions share of gravel cost is delivery. I'm sure that IH guzzles the fuel, so no insignificant cost there, but probably paid for itself just in savings vs having to have all that rock brought in by a contractor.

  • Is your mustache new? I have become an expert on watching folks work...skid steers, excavators, dozers, and loaders, but not road graders. Anyway I thought you have done very well with your dozer. I'm not complaining, or anything, but it would've been cool if you had graded it first, and put some drainage. You could have made 2-3 shows out of it. Just messing with you. You have done a great job.

  • So crazy question here Matt, why not back the dump truck to where you can dump the rock and lay it down behind you as you move forward? I've seen that done before say in an area where a shop was going to be built such that it laid the rock out in a decent layer and little forming had to be done by dozer, skid steer or otherwise?
