Why not hook your dump trailer up to the big tractor and lock the tractor into 4wheel drive. That should work especially after you cut the little road in.

Mike! That darn Japanese stilt grass that you were clearing with the brush hog is a mess! I have so much of it here in Southeastern Pennsylvania. I'll curse the day that stuff first came over from Asia as packing material! The seed bank lasts at least 7 years. Also, you should be changing the wording at the end of that video......"I was distracted by Melissa's beauty"!👠👠👠❤️❤️❤️

Mike: “that’s steeper than it looks on camera so I’ll cut a road across here” Translation: “the excavator would make it up and down the hill just fine but it’s more fun to cut a road with the excavator” 😁 (And yes, of course a lower pitch slope is safer and will make tractor access better in the future...)

There was a good opportunity there to tell people to fill out their census forms. It is the easiest thing to do and it is mandated by the US constitution. It also really helps our country, if you care about things such as that.

For construction of your sediment forebay, you may want to consider using gabion baskets filled with Class 1 rip rap (4" - 9" stone). Tie the ends back into the bank and leave a 4' center weir opening for overflow. You can then carry bucket loads of rip rap down to fill the baskets. Put 1/2" - 3/4" gravel on the uphill side to filter out the sediment.

Use your dump trailer on that pond project. I pull mine with a tractor when in the woods, works great for me getting around trees etc. Then I put a battery maintainer on that night or I guess you could tap 12 volts off the tractor if you need alot off dump cycles.

You should have done the census online, would have saved someone coming to the house! It's important as it helps the schools get more money in the long run, only 9/10 questions every 10 years isn't asking too much Mike. Check out an excavator rotator bucket for the Kubota job at the pond. Would be a piece of cake.
Mark Pashia
Mark Pashia 2 ай мурун
That is the short form. Wait till you get "randomly selected" for a long form. Nine or ten pages is more like it. They don't like to tell you this, but you only have to answer about four of five questions for them to move on. They are what is required by the original census as required by the constitution. All the rest of the stuff has been added to help the statisticians get a grasp of things but is not really required. They have to have a head count, names and ages but that is really about it.

Mike a suggestion from experience. Much greater water available to your pond if the cedars were removed. They suck up so much water from the ground, it amazed me how much more water flow I gained removing them. pods.dasnr.okstate.edu/docushare/dsweb/Get/Document-9066/L-439.pdf
