Re: Detention Basin


Just out of curiosity, what is the advantage of finishing the slopes with a rotator bucket? I see you have a dozer with a 6 way blade... would it be faster to rough dig and then a final dozer grade?

Dozers have their place on 4:1 slopes or flatter, but when it comes to 2:1 slopes a tilting bucket is the cats a$$. Ever run a gradall ?? You can cut slopes with nice sharp edges, smooth and straight lines. Works great for cutting sharp corners, emergency spill ways and swales. Plus when using a dozer on slopes dirt and rocks fall to the bottom and against your silt fence. With the hoe you can clean them right up as you go.

I have some grass lined swales to do here in a couple weeks. I will take pics.
