Nice work. I could not have done any better.
Hey, one of them Yella Machines is a John Deere 310...lol.Now thats impressive.
Delete all the pics of the Yella Machines and you'll be JD's new poster child.
Very pro looking job.....
Yeah man D5. I couldn't tell you what sub model, just know it's a D5. My buddy is a real good operator. Ain't a piece of equipment he can't run, & better than most people. I'm an amateur. I've been playing around with backhoes & tractors since I was a teen but, it's never been my day job.Looks like a D5G or an older 4. We got one. Nice grading machines. Notice the tracks look pretty slacked. That makes for a smoother grade believe it or not. Too tight tracks makes it choppy. I’ve done miles of logging roads exactly like that. Your bud knows how to do it with the swale on the upper hill side and grading it up into the hill. I miss the days of working in the beautiful countryside with no inspectors or hard hats.
Once you get through the winter and get some water down that swale it’ll clean up first then slowly start eroding. You can then plan to put some check dams in it to slow the water down hindering the erosion immensely.
Nice work and thanks for sharing. Brought back some memories
Yes, drain pipes were put back.sure is nice to see a good crown job on a road .......a good hard rain will show you if you missed anything LOL.....
did you put back in the cross drains? or just going without them ?
So, we've had some rain since. In fact, last weekend we got 6.5" of rain in approx 24hrs. That's a pretty significant rain, even for us. Driveway still looks perfect. Everything worked as it should. No rivers running across it, & no obstructions in the ditch, or the drains. Feeling pretty good about it.Yes, drain pipes were put back.
I'll probably go over there first good rain, to see how things are performing in real time.
