Okay, now we’re drilling holes for few offers over there it’s the 12 inch drill bit And there’s a 15 holes per hopper. So he’s going down about 3 feet for a hole The leg arms is running the crane and I just got done running that thing. I think we’re done with it for now That’s sweet. So it’s a nice machine. But yeah, we’ll get concrete poured in these and then that’ll be done That’ll be done will have loppers here Guys know what time it is? It’s bud time Okay, Keon, let’s do it All right, we got a rolling Put it in a gear here. Let’s just do seventh right now And that way we’ll just take it easy and let it warm up Now one thing I have to do because we’ve got power lines that cross a lot of our farm here this boom Will hit them So I got to go Sal fillets and do a long detour all the way around to get over to where we need to go So that’s where I started the power lines come across the field right here. You can see them I think it’s this corner right here and then they go down all the way to right here So that’s why I have to make the big D to around all this they also go all the way up the County Road Way up north the only way to get over there. It’s go all around here. Come over it go straight here Unfortunately, we’re taking the bins from to their way down here and there’s no power lines. They need this area So we’re good there and we made it hell, it’s a couple minutes. So we’re gonna use this boom. Crane here We’re gonna take each one of these hoppers one at a time We’re gonna pick them up and set them down on the concrete that we poured the other day. See there’s two of them See the one right there. Well, they’re they’re on top of each other They don’t look very big One just stood there looking at me And they are cool creatures Yeah, they are Oh there he goes That’s funny they’re running in pairs And I’m very big Here they go just right over here, well not letting you chase these buddy I know Are you oh he’s turning into a coon You know long you gotta stretch it out there need to be a hound dog Okay Kobe, it’s okay settle down you’re okay Just some raccoons buddy Sit down sit down now, it’s okay we’re hurting the raccoon Blake my father’s Running right to our buildings and we don’t want if you got chicken Most place is probably to shoot on but since we don’t have any Coons around these areas, it’s kind of fun to see them so There’s no treatment up Come on buddy settle down you’re okay You’re okay there. We push the boy away. Hopefully I don’t come back. Yeah, no fun. Coby enjoyed it Okay, it’s Monday morning we’re back at the bin side again, I’m after doing some numbers and talking some engineers We’ve determined that our cement paths here should be sufficient to hold the weight that we’re gonna have on these bins. I Guess we’ll find out when we put bunch of wheat in them But until then well, no, but we did decide we were doing a 12-inch bit for the smaller hopper bin Turned out they had an 18 inch in town here and around the numbers and that 18 would be a lot better just about perfect for The the size of binits going on in the weight 15 legs in the ground. So we went ahead got that 18 inch auger We’re gonna read rill all those twelve inch holes with 18. Get the cement or to pour it And then today, I believe the wind’s gonna pick up a little bit But if it doesn’t pick up too bad, we’re gonna use Bob’s big blood bid. Boom here pick up these hoppers We’re gonna settle mommy’s conquering up path right there. So yeah Get her done. Yeah Oh Coby found him Yeah, I hear I’m barking out there He found them No So that’s a 12-inch hole and that’s an 18 inch hole. There’s the 18 inch bit. So yeah, we’re gonna do all these again around Okay, these hoppers they say weigh about 5,000 pounds each, so there’s some weight there could you go with me It’s the base point of a particular detail It’s so easy to shift this thing around them Yeah Like right there we can actually pivot they made it so you can swivel the gate on this So we’re gonna turn the gate square it up with this front here and that way we’ll have them That’s pretty level there’s only couples that maybe have a quarter-inch Bianco That’s not bad at all. It’s that one there That looks pretty good Just about there There she goes we had to readjust there was one well in the center the frame that we missed right there So we just broke it off But he’s good now he can lift That’s a little more Right there that’s pretty good those are centered. Well, there we go guys it’s all done Offers are finally on their resting place And so we’re thinking if everything works out, they’re gonna finish drilling these holes over here. We got the concrete poured this week Cement poured its concrete after its cement when it’s liquid. Anyway, the cement will be poured And concrete and then we’re gonna then take and lift these two hoppers, right? There there those two hoppers right there and those two are going to bolt it down on those over here we got all the dirt that the bit drilled up when we dug all these holes, so Flag arms is running the Ten thousand greater here. It’s allis-chalmers ten thousand. He’s pulling over to the side Get out of our way here We just had the cement truck. He’s on his way out to that bin site Alright, here. We are For those that don’t know how that trucks work. There’s an auger inside this tank here and When it spins one way, it pulls all the products down to the bottom as they add water That’s a mixture, but it reverses it Then it’s just like a drain auger and it starts augering the gravel the Smith up to the top and out and so he just Peters how fast it comes out by how fast he turns the drum a pretty Cool idea. It’s been around a long time a little drone footage free guys here. I’m flying over the top of the bin site There’s the to hoppers that we’re gonna move If you look closely you can see those floors like a crack they are that’s all we have to move them Here’s the bins hoppers that we just moved looking good. There’s leg arms looking even better. Oh, he spotted something He’s always aware This is a sweet shot from up above you can see the work We’ve been doing pretty awesome and they’re just now getting the truck ready He’s just adding shoots there digs down the distance as we’re filling We slow it down and then manually rake it in by hand to make there we recomm out for a whole Here’s a neat time-lapse of us doing the whole process dad and I are in the front We’re just filling up the holes to the top and then leg arms comes back through with the trowel and just smooths off the surface Overall, it was a good process. It didn’t take long and we’re happy with how it looks another aerial shot here I stepped aside for a second. I let my dad man the shoot by himself. It’s really simple It just flows down the chute. It goes in the hole when it gets close to the top He waves to stop the flow and then we just moved the next tool. So yeah, pretty simple I like these shots of law. Isn’t that cool? This part of Montana has really bad water supplies for a lot of the communities And so it’s been a lot of years in the works, but they’ve been slowly putting in water lines throughout this part of northern Montana to supply the small communities. Well, they are just now starting to rip a water line not rip dig They’re gonna trench it a pretty good size I think it’s twelve or fourteen inches and it’s gonna go right next to our farmyard through some of our land Up north and actually our plan is to hopefully be able to tap into it and use it for our water source as well So that way we want to use our pump house anymore because it’ll supply enough pressure to get positive pressure to our farmyard So that’ll be sweet then We can just have a float on it have big surge tanks and then they’ll just fill up over time and then we just have a fast a Fast transfer pump that can just take it and kick it right into the sprayer as we need it. So But it’s gonna be cool because they got a d7 Caterpillar out there working right now got a front-end loader laying pipe and they’re gonna bring in a big old s cavae Tur, I think it’s all caterpillar equipment I got to look and see and I’m gonna film off the drone to show you guys I asked that’s okay They said that’s fine. Go for it. So here’s that pipeline project. I was telling you guys about earlier Oh here comes some pipe shipments. Yeah, that’s a little bit of money on that trailer. I can only imagine what that cost. Oh Yeah, that’s good size pipe that’s definitely good size pipe Zip respective. That’s my hand I can actually see right here. They’ve already pulled the Topsoil over with that dozers Lots what they’ve been doing. Oh Yeah Yeah, it’s pretty cool It’s me, uh interesting to see him dig that thing in and that’s a lot of digging They got to go about 15 miles with this thing as far as far as I know It was pretty windy and it was starting to spit a little bit but I did manage to get the drone in the air Here’s a sweet aerial shot. You can see of them. They’re just taking a corner right there. Heading north He just dropped the pipe in with that one excavator They got another guy in a skid steer running around. I’m sure he’s just moving pipe around to get close to excavator The excavator on the right is digging the trench right now. That’s actually not their biggest excavator They have a bigger case, but they didn’t have a bucket at the time so they weren’t able to use it So a little slower running these smaller excavators, but that’s big to me. I wished I had one of those man he goes fast Is that cool how they do that joint like that? I’m sure they have a 45 we’re gonna put in there to connect that pipe and then they had this d7 It could be a d6 I think it’s a d7 cat it’s got you see GPS leveling blade and that just comes by and does the finishing pass after they’ve dug the trench Here’s a sweet. Aerial shot to left is Shelby and to the right You can see our farm the distance way up in the corner That’s how far they’ve gone so far. So that’ll get them a couple days. And then there’s Shelby in the background There’s a big water tank That’s awesome. This this is cool. Okay. We’re in the office. I got my dad leg arms, and we got a package I figure you guys like box openings. Let’s open this package up. See what’s inside. It’s from Pottinger Pottinger That’s how you pronounce it hot. And you’re they sent us a gift. I’m sure it’s to do with running They’re their speed discs of the day the taro discs. So we’re excited. Let’s open her up.

    I'm a pipeliner by trade (not this kind) natural gas pipe and that pipe is tiny compared to that stuff. You should come see some of it.

    What is the knife that Legarms is using? Looks like a Microtech Ultratech OTF with a tanto blade, but kind of seems larger than an Ultratech. Is it a clone?

    it doesnt matter if it is wet or dry, it is called concrete. cement is an ingredient in concrete. they should be called concrete trucks. its just one of those things that everybody gets wrong. i know the difference and i still call it cement lol

    Hey Hollywood. Seems Leg Arm has the looks of his daddy. What happened to you?
    Are you sure you're not a Wheat-Patch found baby?
    You don't look like Leg Arm and his daddy.

    Someone got a chunk of money for the water pipeline going threw there property. Now there is easement on your property.

    Edit: I can’t believe they are digging it.. they make trenchers that can trench that pipe in!

    cement is an ingredient in concrete. Concrete is a mixture of cement and gravel. Its concrete whether it's wet or cured. Just some fun facts. lol

    Whats the Difference Between Cement and Concrete? Although the terms cement and concrete often are used interchangeably, cement is actually an ingredient of concrete. Concrete is basically a mixture of aggregates and paste. The aggregates are sand and gravel or crushed stone; the paste is water and portland cement.

    water wont do harm to those concrete pads. If something does its the frost. Where i live you have to put foundations to 140cm+ or the frost will bring everything to surface. 😛

    Just for clarity/specificity sake … Cement is Portland Cement… State of cure, moisture content and plasticity… AKA "liquid vs. solid" is not relevant to what its called.

    Cement added to gravel and sand (with or w/o other add mixtures like fiber reiforcement, expanded shale etc.) is "Concrete".
    Cement, sand and lime is "Mortar".
    Cement and sand ONLY (depending on ratios, other aditive may also be added depending on application) are "Grout", "topping mix" or many other types of "special purpose" mixes (like counter top concrete etc….)
    Such as:
    Cement mixed with very fine sand and an alkyl cellulose derivative is"thin set", and when latex is added to that mix its called "Modified Thin set".

    Water is only added to "activate" the cement in the mix an to facilitate plastic flow in what ever ratio called for (spec'd) for the mix and application for the activation/saturation of the cement in the mix and only really relevant to state of cure and only for the time that the cement in the mix is still curing.

    Great video's though and keep up the great and HARD work !!!

    Hey Nick and Welker Family. Hello from Germany. At 09:23 you talked about how a cement drum is like a grain auger. I Drive a concrete truck in Germany and made a short clip of the inside if you are interested in seeing what it looks like. here is a link to that video. https://www.facebook.com/robert.j.entwistle/videos/460562100636085/

    I drive from spokane wa to missoula Kalispell belgrade billings pretty much all over and that concrete truck is the first one like that I've seen in montana every one i see on the road or on jobsite is the tumbler sits over the cab and have always wondered why they use that style tumbler over cab rather than what i consider a standerd tumbler on back in wash,idaho where im from.

    Although the terms cement and concrete often are used interchangeably, cement is actually an ingredient of concrete. Concrete is a mixture of aggregates and paste. The aggregates are sand and gravel or crushed stone; the paste is water and portland cement.

    Cement comprises from 10 to 15 percent of the concrete mix, by volume. Through a process called hydration, the cement and water harden and bind the aggregates into a rocklike mass. This hardening process continues for years meaning that concrete gets stronger as it gets older.

    Portland cement is not a brand name, but the generic term for the type of cement used in virtually all concrete, just as stainless is a type of steel and sterling a type of silver. Therefore, there is no such thing as a cement sidewalk, or a cement mixer; the proper terms are concrete sidewalk and concrete mixer.
