|The tractor vet
When one of my friends needs excavating done they ask me what we need to do the job , then they RENT what i tell them and i run it . a couple years back a friend called me to come look at what they had planned for a new cattle barn and needed a site leveled on a hill side . They had bids from three different excavating contractors from 7800 bucks to 12000 bucks and were told that they would hace to bring in two pans two dozers and a sheeps foot roller and it would take them a week to do the job. Vernon asked me what i thought and what we needed to do it . I told him ONE dozer his one farm tractor and his home made dump wagon . It was a cut and fill and had to be compacted . He rented a 750 J D dozer and i went to work . Took me five days to do the site with a 9 foot cut across 350 feet and a fill of 12 foot plus rough grading at the end to get water to flow around the site . His cost was under two grand with fuel. and i was paid well for the job . The contractor that was to do the footers and alley ways and feet bunks was amazed to find that i had the whole location within 1/2 to one inch of grade and asked who did it and was it done with lazer . and no we did not have a lazer just and old builders level and a story pole and a old fart in the seat that can cut a grade by feel . when you rent you get a fairly new machine that is somewhat tight and if it breaks down not due to your fault they bring out another one or fix it .
