When u can’t afford 2 trucks of gravel u should not have such a long drive way.

It’s very enjoyable to watch you use the tooth bucket, maybe because I don’t have one but either way I like it😊

The teeth were good for breaking up the hard ground. I didn't need the grapples here, but they gave it a little extra weight. The grapples are nice for grabbing stuff.

Have you ever tried a soil conditioner? They work good for digging out Pot holes in driveways and resurfacing them. Also great for leveling yards.

Grading it flat is ok but no gravel was a dumb decision by owner because in the long run hell just pay to have it graded for ever.
Andrew Camarata
Andrew Camarata - 6 måneder siden
Every 3 years or so. Grading is cheep, gravel is expensive. IDK, once gravel is added, it will be much less maintenance though.

Absolutely no compaction no water you didn't even drain the puddles first so now they will come straight back because there big soft spots sure you got it looking flat but as for the quality of the work I think this is a very unprofessional fix up of a drive way you would not be paid if you done a job like this in Australia mate I'll give you the red hot tip
Andrew Camarata
Andrew Camarata - 10 måneder siden
I tracked on it for compaction. This repair will last a few years, It didn't cost much, that's all they wanted to pay for. I did this driveway 5 years ago. I offered to do a really good job on the driveway, they said they could not afford it.

HYi Andrew why do you not look for a used grader all this road maintenance would be a piece of cake and with your ability to fix old stuff it might be worth your while to look into these keep up
the good work take care thankyou for the video ciao gimmy hey when are you going to finish the tower house ????
1958johndeere620 - 11 måneder siden
I don't like grading roads without adding gravel. The finished product sucks, and usually drainage is an issue due to the shoulders being higher then the road. I know this was the customers choice, not yours.

>^. .^< The faster a wheel passes acorss small rectangular shaped stone drivway surfaces, the more the chance the retangular stone will have a fulcrum near the middle by chance and downaward force or angular force will push one down and flip this stone and many others out of the area and develope a pot hole. Then when a wheel passes thru a the puddle the weight or angular momentum makes a Tsunami and the water washes ans sand out of the puddle each and every time sone one drives thru it..... Spect roads with marble shaped rocks arwe less likely to flip the round stones off the deiveway....

how do you determine how much to charge a customer to repair a driveway? does the number of pieces of equipment make a difference? do yo charge by the foot?

Okay, I am hooked. I have spent hours watching you clear driveways, fix motors, wave run the Hudson and even built the coolest workshop ever. . You are one very talented and resourceful guy. I love your ingenuity when tackling a problem. I would love to see all your toys and there accessories lined up in a row. It seems just when I think you have every possible machine for the job you show up with another one. LOL Would love to see a profile of your drone. You have some pretty exception aerial video's. Keep the videos coming. I am retired so have lots of time to watch them. I live in Canada and winter is coming so I will be stuck in my igloo til the spring thaw. BaaaHaaa

Do you let the Home owner know that your going to be video taping your job and do they say anything about you moving your camera all the time and flying your Drone for a Great video as your working ? Here in Iowa You wouldn't get away with it Get the job done and get out to the next one.

I have been telling people, no one has cared. If they cared, they would probably be getting someone else to do the job.

If they don't add material, those potholes will come back with a vengeance. I hope they don't blame you for that. Makes no sense, they have a machine there, may as well spend the money and do it right. They should also drop a load of gravel and fill the holes as they appear, these roads need a lot of constant maintenance.

I'm no vet but it sure looks like to me that Levi is having a lot of trouble with his joints.  The way he walks makes me think he is in constant pain.  It struck a cord with me because I have bad knees and the way he walks reminds me a lot of the way I walk!   I hope I'm wrong about him.

It doesn't rip into that hard gravel as well. Maybe if I fixed the teeth on the box blade, but that stuff was packed like concrete. The skid steer has much more power.

hey man. Love the channel. Was wondering if you could help me out a bit? I just bought a piece of property and I'm in the process of clearing right now. I have a pole barn package being delivered next week and it's been raining like crazy here. My driveway is 400' long and is topped with about 400' of crush and run. I know I should have ponied up the money to put a bigger stone base down but I went cheap and crossed my fingers. Half the driveway is a muddy mess now. Any suggestions?
