Creative Contractor Makes Slope Tracking Excavator Bucket

Leave it to the creative contractor to come up with creative solutions. Confronted with a small, steep slope and wet soil, the contractor didn’t want to risk walking a small caterpiller up and down to roughen it before hydroseeding. Using some angle iron and an excavator bucket, they welded up a slope tracker. The operator tamps the slope with the bucket just like they are compacting the slope. This is the result.

Close Call Cut in Half

Close Call Cut in Half

While driving pile, one hit a soft pocket and the pile “ran” 20 feet or so. The hammer came down, nothing there to hit, cable holding the pile driving hammer broke, the hammer fell, hit an excavator boom, bounced off and hit the boat.

The pile buck in the boat, having quick reflexes and a clean change of boxers, jumped into the bay just in time; no one hurt.

Prevented Trackout

We prevented trackout by placing grizzlies from the road back into the site. Truck drivers backed up to the steel plate near the excavator and dumped their loads. The excavator operator moved the material into the proper piles. The truck tires came in clean, stayed clean on the grizzlies and left clean. With thought and planning, we didn’t need to install a tire wash.

Fancy Rock Entrance

I saw this fancy rock entrance on the way to work and thought it was amusing on the surface. Really, though, I think they needed the elevation to access the upper part of the site. That’s a nice mini excavator.
