Their loss our gain, Thank you for sharing both the good and the bad with us all. You're in a league of your own in with the hours on each machine and your building/tooling/having fun skills, one of the great parts of these forums is sharing all our knowledge not for greed or profit but because we enjoy it again Thank you

I love the look of the worn/ grimmy hoe! All the worn paint and leaking cylinders just add to the scalism!!thanks for posting videos and when you make it outside please get us a video in sunlight so we can see those awesome machines in better lighting!

dozzablue- I'm really not all that hard to please, if it works right out of the box, GREAT! If it doesn't, then lets work together to solve the problem with it.

footprint- thank you & you're welcome & I agree with you, too much of the hobby nowadays is seemly becoming too commercialized... in some ways that's good - as in more variety, but in other ways it's bad - as in greed & poor quality added in the mix.

However, the only league that I find myself currently in is "falling behind", I'm quickly becoming a grumpy ol man that hates change, and this hobby is changing rapidly lately with electronic goodies that I am having a hard time wrapping my mind around. I'm a stick in the mud for simplier is better... though I do like your saying that I have fun skills, that I do try to excel at!

RCJEEPBUILDER- a few battle scars & grime, I like the look of it too... till I have to fix and get the grime all over me as well.

I made 5 vids early last Fall with the machinery outside... in case you missed them?

Thanx for your interest everyone, much appreciated.

Digging up the screener's holding pit, dumped alot of big lumps from the wall in here last Spring cause I was having troubles with the crusher at the time.


















I'm running out room to pile! By the looks of the forecast, it's warming up this wk, FINALLY!!! it's been a long cold winter that started early November. Depending on the direction of the wind & how dry it is, I might finally be able to haul some out.






This pic was taken with me holding the camera.




And this one with the camera on the tripod... much clearer! Amazing what just a bit of shake ruins the quality.



And here's one of two movies.

Joe, your pics and vids are always cool to watch, I was wondering if you've ever had to attempt a scale recovery of your equipment, like if that excavator was to fall upside down into the pit for example?! Also do you have a conveyor or elevator to haul the dirt outside or is some manual labour required?(sorry if i've missed the answer to that earlier in this thread).
Cheers
Tony.

Hi!
That pit looks just like Jack hoffmans glory hole pit in the discovery series "gold rush alaska".
Do you think you could find any gold down there??
Maybe you should build a wash plant an find out !! LOL

bigtone351 - I rolled the dozer out the window about this time last yr, it was caught on tape. though it doesn't look like I posted it in this thread. You'll find it on my yt channel. Other than that, no, no bad mishaps with other equipment. The hoe has 5mm cleats on the track pads, it's well anchored where ever it sits.

I had a conveyer (seen in earlier vids)... which is why the dirt lump crusher came to be & later the screener too... the finer the dirt, the better it went up the belt without roll back.

After finnishing the east wall Jan '11, I jerked out the conveyer, changed the road system up the wall and am now trking out the dirt... it slows the basement excavation project down, the conveyer was a little too efficient! Start reading about pg 22.



Greg - this hoe was finnished Oct '09. The current excav build is of a Vario John Deere 850, more than twice the size of this one... but the build has been delayed yet again b/c of missing parts in the kit.

Wouldn't that be a treat Toni!

I saw a program on Discovery this winter of that gold mine in Africa, deepest mine in the world 2.5 miles below the surface. I got a ways to go yet, just 2.399999 miles yet and maybe I'll find some.

Great vid Joe. All the tread marks in the dirt really make it look full scale.

Cheers Scot.

Here's a vid of the lil hoe & loader piling the tailings.


I loaded the trks up at 6am Monday morning so they were ready roll on the frost when the wind changed from sw to nw & the temp got a lil warmer ...













...but delays in real life, I didn't get back in time before it got too soft. So it had to wait a day.

So here's the vid from yesterday morning of the 1st four loads out for the new season of hauling dirt out of my basement. A few glitches, bloopers and discoveries that my equip doesn't work as well as it did last fall when I parked it. The 5 stage telescope on the end dump trl blew a seal at the 2nd stage... have to figure out how to get that apart to repair. And nearly every tailgate latch wouldn't release... goofy shyt always happens when the camera is filming.
