While loading fill for the building Pad I decided to have a little contest between the MX 5400 Utility Tractor and The Kubota KX-080 Excavator to which would load the dump trailer faster

Interesting comparison. I'm surprised there was that much time difference between them. I figured it would've been closer. Thanks for setting that up. Really cool to see that.

Since you are already digging out that side of the work-pad down there.... would it make sense to dig a drainage ditch and/or dry-well on that portion to help get some of the water off the "Renewable Energy Processing Facility" when it rains..... and help mitigate some of your dreaded *mud!?* Thanks, Mikey.

The Tractor did a cleaner job. The Excavator had spillage.

How about making a picnic table with each the Walnut or Cherry? design it so you have wheels on one side and could be lifted on its side out of the way when not used. would be in the new building.

I personally think that no matter how fast you can fill the trailer. It is far better than shoveling by hand

The soil you are using to construct the engineered fill under your new building is clearly dry of the optimum moisture content for compaction. Placing fill dry of optimum results in a fill which appears to be hard but is not dense. When it becomes saturated due to precipitation and capillary rise the soil softens, flows into voids between the dry soil clumps and consolidates. That means anything constructed on top of the fill will settle with the fill and if you have a variable fill thickness, you will get more settlement in the deeper fill resulting in differential settlement of your structure. It is too late to properly address the moisture content of the fill that has already been placed so I would suggest you add some real bar reinforcing (not welded wire fabric) to you foundations, stem walls and floor slab to help reduce the faulting and separation of the floor slab cracks that typically accompany differential settlement. Forty five years as a consulting geotechnical engineer, I have been there and done that and have the sweatshirt to prove it. If your depth of fill is low (1 to 2 feet or so) it likely won't be too much of a problem. If you have more fill than that, I would expect you will eventually get more settlement than you would like to see. For more information on moisture-density relationships of soils being compacted Google search the standard Proctor test and the Modified Proctor test to get a better understanding of the what the optimum moisture content means.

Good job on your video, just like with your loader how trailer location makes it easier to load might try keeping your trailer back a bit or extent of reach. 25 to 35 degrees on your swing will shave some time off if you feel comfortable pulling by your tires. Great video buddy 👍

Great video Mike. Once all is completed down by the wood processing area I see the trailer being used to bring a few loads of limestone to expand the area and to cover up the mud. All the best.

There will always be some travel required with a tractor so I think that part was definitely fair. The part that may have a bit biased toward the excavator was that the position of the trailer with the excavator didn’t require the same level of care to avoid spillage. That might have increased the excavator timea bit, but as long as the excavator doesn’t require track travel, it will beat the tractor every time.

I have not been receiving your videos in about a week. I've always received them. My subscription has not changed. I'm the same since the start on the "SUBSCRIBED" and the "bell" is set to all videos. When I hadn't heard from you, I went to KGpost's main and recent videos and that's when I noticed I wasn't receiving them. It must be a KGpost issue.

Lot more travel time for each bucket with the tractor. Had the trailer been about 8ft or so closer I think the comparison might have been closer. It would have been a lot tighter area to turn and dump though.

Great video, love seeing you put the machines through their paces. But to truly compare trailer should have been in the same place for both. Tractor had to move far to get to the trailer. Excavator never had to move just pivot, of course that would make it faster. But if it had to roll even 5 feet back and forth I bet the tractor would win. What is the cubic feet difference of the buckets?

I don't know Mike, it would seem to me there might be a little bias on your part toward the ex. You know Daddy's Morgan is going to buy one of these when he retires. I don't know, I'm just say'n is all. Bias or not, it is still much faster. Way fewer movements needed by the ex then the tractor to complete the task. Big Toys for Big Boys!! A fun test. Good idea!

The excavator is also a rental machine with the hydraulic rates way low. An excavator running at full rate would have gapped the tractor even further.
