Default Been picking up rocks at the 587 ranch.

Tim and I have been picking up rocks around the ranch and making windrows for about 3 months now. Rock crusher will be here Monday to turn them into gravel. We made a video of the rocks in case anyone is interested. We will make another drone video once he is finished.

Yeah. We either put them in the back of the SXS or lowered the tractor bucket to the ground and threw them into the bucket. The big ones ones we rolled into the bucket by hand. A few of the huge ones we were able to scoop up.

Will this be a skid steer mounted crusher? Iíd be very curious to see and hear how it all turns out, if so. Also how much they get per hour to do so.

Iím thinking about buying one of those crushers.

This is the one he uses. Last time he ground down a bunch of huge embedded rocks on our roads to the blinds and it turned out great. We have some serious rocky areas. He also did some windrows and they turned out fine. Not sure what he gets per hr but I'll find out.

It doesn't make the smoothest road but is going to be a good rock base. I'll get it semi-smooth using my tractor and then top with real base later on.

Call Porter Construction when you are ready for base.
