Stan: We're getting dirty today.
Stan: Alright, guys. It's a full day today. We're going to be mucking out the stinkiest, nastiest pond you can imagine, and then by the end of the video, my son somehow manages to fall into it, which is completely awesome. We're also going to be talking about pricing jobs, how to actually do a job like you're gonna see today. So, without wasting anymore time. Let's do this thing.
Stan: "Hey Elliot, come pick this up."
Elliot: What is it?
Stan: It's a water scorpion.
Elliot: How do you pick it up?
Stan: Very, very carefully, 'cause if they actually sting you, it'll turn your flesh inside out.
Elliot: Yeah, so I'll film, you can pick it up. How's that for a deal?
Stan: Okay, so the problem is, when you let me pick it up, let me hold the camera here real quick. Hey Tim, can you hold this camera? I want to show Elliot something with the water scorpion. So Elliot didn't have the nads to pick up a water scorpion.
Speaker 1: When I was eight years old, I was handed a hay hook, and I was told to use that to grab hay bales to lift them out of the field and onto the tractor. I was never given any more instruction than, "Here is the hook. Here's what's gotta be done." And I grabbed that hay hook, and it basically comes off your hand and has a big hook, and I slammed it down onto the very first hay bale, and the hook bounced back and smashed my eight year old little hand. Ever since that day, I have hated hay hooks and hay bales with a passion.
Speaker 1: Well, the point is, if somebody would've taken the time to show me the right way to use that hay hook so I wouldn't have gotten hurt and I could've done the job the right way, I would probably think a little bit differently about hay hooks and hay bales to this day, which yeah, I guess they're not my mortal enemy, but ...
Speaker 1: So today, guys, is the start of a six part series on how to run a payloader. And we're actually going to get my...
Speaker 1: Cool.
Speaker 1: Alright guys. In the first video, Frankie spouted his little mouth off, bragging about how he could beat any log splitter out there, but when it came to the Power King Log Splitter, he pretty much met his match. This thing was lightning fast and you've guys seen just how fast this thing could operate. Well, I wanted to find out what made this tick. So, in today's video, I'm going to pull it all apart.
Speaker 1: I'm going to look at it in depth to try to figure out how this thing works and what's good about it, and what's not so hot about it. But before we get into this thing, I will tell you that I actually do like this log splitter. So, I'm going to put a link to it down below where you can buy it on Amazon for residential use, occasional use. This is a fine unit. Now, I did go out and do a ton of research and found what I consider to be the best unit on the market. And so, that's going to come up in the next video in this series where we take my brand...
Stan: You're going to learn how to drive a 60 ton rock truck today. But besides learning what to do in it, you're also going to learn the things to avoid so you don't end up rolling it over like the guys on Gold Rush did on one of their episodes but I owe a big thank you to two people today, the first off is Volvo, I put this idea to them and they're sponsoring this entire series on how to run heavy equipment, but they're not here to try to sell you their equipment so if you're looking for a review on rock truck and excavators and pieces of equipment, you're not going to find any of that there. This is strictly a how to run heavy equipment, just to get new guys in the industry familiar with the in's and out's, the do's and more importantly, the don'ts of running heavy equipment.
Stan: And the second person I owe a big, I mean a giant thank you to is my wife because I brought her with me to Pennsylvania just to be my camera operator so I could put these videos together. And...
