'Act like it's dead'? After you cut it, it IS dead! LOL Where I live you are responsible for digging by hand 2' on both sides of their locate mark. If you cut a line and it's not further than 2 feet YOU pay for the fix.

Too Bad about that pond you're fixin' to drain! Were you able to determine if there was Catfish and Snapping Turtles off in there? What State are you in? If it's *Oklahoma* , I'd be keeping an eye open for slippery wet Cottonmouth Water Moccasins as well.

You couldn't get a jack hammer for the machine or rent a pull behind? to get that wall out? You laughed at the other guys work.

I would have liked the pond. Great habitat for a lot of creatures.

That’s called a slip balance rigging. Noticed after it slipped the culvert was balanced. 😂😂

He let go of the controls to take a picture of the pipe while a guy was walking in front of his equipment , the first president of osha just turned over in his grave

I carry a 2-foot chain with a hook at each end. Works great for shortening a longer chain.

Too much drop and too much silt in that area. Pipe was set correctly with concrete rip rap below to give enough drop to keep from coming over the road. Upper side will silt in shortly and when flow hits the pipe it will pick up enough speed to keep upper area from silt build up and clogging the new pipe. Chris did install it correctly and the man that signs the front of the check will be happy with the finished product. If the pipe had been set lower then there would be a loss of the carrying capacity of the pipe itself thereby wasting the extra $$$ spent on the difference between buying a 36’ or 42” pipe instead of the 48” he paid for.

I was hoping Tim would climb in that pipe as a counterweight.

Now i know Murphy is live and well even under ground. You put a price tag on job . Little did you know what's waiting for you below. Great job of using up the old concrete slabs.

Such an amazing operator
Goal Digger (4 months ago)
I know you're good with your equipment, but your buddy should not be standing that close to a swinging excavator bucket with teeth on it. That's just asking for a blunt trauma injury or gashes.

No way that pond is going to fully drain out. You should have told the land owner that there was a wall built there and removed it, digging the hole deeper for the tube. You left the job undone in my opinion. This person is going to have to call in a 3rd contractor now to fix your laziness and previous contractors mistake. See ya on Judge Judy!

Your works excellent mate but I will say one thing. Guys in the trenche need hard hats. Iv seen first hand what a fist size chunk of clay with a rock in does to a man when it comes unstuck from the back of a bucket. Resulting the guy suing his boss and winning. .
Robby Gee (5 months ago)
I bet the guy who signes the front of the check was pissed when he saw his pond still there.

That old damn was a curve ball.
Reegareth (5 months ago)
shouldn't that have been a fair bit deeper???? there seemed to be a good bit of standing water still after you added the 48 inch line for it to drain through... You would think that with a pond that small and a line that large it would have cleared out a little quicker. Water is still going to settle there especially when that culvert starts building up a little sedement as all culverts eventually do.

Should the worker be within the swing of the bucket? Sure seems to be a safety violation.

36 " pipe would have been enough ! 48 is over kill not needed.

I am amazed they don't use a marking band all the way on top of that phone line. We usually have a marking strip 30 cm above the cables in Denmark

Change the position of the camera. So we could see more Of the work you were doing 👍 Instead of your shoulder 😳
Trevor Dennis (14 days ago)
It's probably not that straight forward. Chris could use a head mount, and while we'd have a wider view, you'd soon get motion sickness from his head whipping all over the place. Part of what makes this channel so watchable is Chris' commentary, and the camera placement makes for great audio quality with minimal engine noise, so while maybe a bit of a compromise, but not much of one. Chris also varies the view point switching to tripod mounting looking back at the excavator, job, haul truck, skid-steer roller etc. And don't forget he's been doing this for ten years now, and has had 166 million views as I type this, so he is not exactly a beginner.

did you say you didnt know what kinda fancy hook up the dot head was trying to do??????......LMFAO

should have removed the concrete and dropped the pipe much deeper, just sayin
Dave Stinson (5 months ago)
Really like the longer videos. I'm guessing customer didn't wanna spend extra $ for a hammer. They can always fill in hole litt n summer. Amazing how these people comment on stuff. Most have no clue what it cost or work involved n ur line of work. U have a reason u do things the way u do. Like concrete thing. U gotta do whst u csn in time u have an budget

Need to watch Andrew Camarata. He'll show you how to do this in a quarter of the time. Andrew is the man.
Trevor Dennis (14 days ago)
I love Andrew's videos, and he is about to overtake Chris with his number of subscribers. Chris and Andrew have different skill sets, but what gives Chris the edge IMO, is that I'd much rather have him for a buddy than Andrew. Chris cracks jokes, and does great banter with Tim and Justin, whereas I don't think I have ever seen Andrew crack a smile, and I have seen all his videos, and a lot of them twice. He does have some good friends to be fair, as evidenced by the help he got building his container building. I'm just glad that they both keep uploading great content, because I am going to keep right on watching it all.

Thought the customer didn't want any water in there, You should have gone deeper

Too bad it will not drain all the way. I would have removed that concrete wall but I like to do things right!
Zac vaper (4 months ago)
+pkoiva0 Of course he is but if you underbid a 5K job by 15K, you deserve to lose every penny. Why do you think he is called a contractor? He is under contract to do a job!!!!!! But if you really think that chipping that tiny wall down would cost 15K... You should just shut your mouth and stop showing how foolish you really are.
Zac vaper (4 months ago)
+Blake Wingate Why would you consider that funny? I don't have the time or inconsideration to be making a video when I am working. It's my responsibility to over-see the welfare of my workers, that the job is done correctly and safely; I'm not there to make a movie.
Blake Wingate (5 months ago)
It's funny the only thing you have on your channel is you playing video games. Can't find a video of you doing any that resembles work! LOL
pkoiva0 (5 months ago)
So if you bid a job at 5k and the actual cost due to unforeseen soil conditions leads that job closer to 20k, the contractor is to be liable for the extra expense?
Zac vaper (5 months ago)
+pkoiva0 Some jobs are more difficult but I always do them right. Just because he didn't know the wall was there doesn't change the fact he was hired to install a pipe to drain the mud flat, just do the work, be a man and suck it up. I feel sorry for whoever hires you. You sound like a scumbag.

I always thought that when you dig like that you should always have an escape “just in case “. Because now you can’t get the mini out unless you fill

It looked like tiswas done at a bad time of the year, no leaves on the trees. Winter is not the time to be doing this type work. Do it in the summer, that way the mess that has been under water will dry.

Get yourself a good quality electrical tester so you will know what's live also would it be easier if you had a non toothed bucket for removing the rock?

Honestly, Common Sense would have you Raise the lines up poles overhead, to get over the culvert area. But lazy is what lazy does. No warning ⚠️ Tape over the Line— that would have been appropriate.

Notice the 160 is getting a fair bit of wear between the bucket teeth, could be an idea to build it back up with weld before it gets much worse, nice little job with stick welder while it's not being used over Christmas holidays Chris. 👍
