Single Arm Skid Steer & How they Work

 

Stan: Alright guys, the sad truth is the Skid Steer training programs at a lot of companies go something like this. There's a pile of dirt, there's a skid loader, go. Well, we're going to try to fill in that middle part today so that if you're a noob to skid loaders and you get thrown into one of those positions, you feel a little bit more comfortable before hopping into a big giant piece of equipment that you've never ran before. 

Stan: But we're going to be using something a little bit different than what you're usually familiar with seeing. We're going to be using a mono-boom or a single-boom skid loader. So before we launch the entire training session, which is four parts, we're going to actually compare and contrast, today, the differences, the critical differences, between a single-boom skid loader and a dual-boom skid loader. And then in parts two and three, we're going to actually go inside of that machine and start teaching you the basic operations. How to do things....

Payloader Basics for Beginners- How to Run, Operate & Understand Heavy Equipment - Part 1

 

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...

What NOT to do with Heavy equipment. Warning signs & mistakes in a 60 ton rock truck #1

 

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...

DIY Outdoor kitchen build with Before and After time lapse - Belgard

 

Stan: All right guys. We're going down to Ohio where Phil and I get together to build an outdoor kitchen. Now Belgard is sponsoring this instructional how to series because they've got a new product that I had never actually used before.

Stan: It's called the Tandem Modular Grid system. And what this does it, it entirely eliminates concrete. It eliminates masonry work. It eliminates everything that goes along with what you would typically think you would have to do to build an outdoor kitchen.

Stan: In fact if you know some general carpentry work and you can frame up a substructure, you're pretty much in business. Because all you have to do with this system is create the framework.

Stan: We screw on a grid system and then your stone veneer literally clips into place. No more mortar, no more mess. None of that.

Stan: A big thanks goes out to Belgard for sponsoring this, for bringing Phil and I down there so that we could put this how to series together for you guys. So what are...

Stan: Man, I'm seeing stuff for the first time that I've never seen before. 

Stan: All right, well welcome back guys. Today, we got a pretty packed show for you because we are going to walk you step by step how to base your own retaining wall block. We're gonna take all the mystery out of what you do, why you do it, and how you do it. So get ready for that. Plus, we're gonna talk in detail about why some landscaping companies like to offer "tiered retaining walls." Now I'm air quoting for a very specific reason, because there's kind of a few red flags, I guess would be the way I'd say. If a landscape company is only offering you a tiered retaining wall, there's a reason, and we want to make sure that you guys fully understand all the benefits, and all of the bad things that go along with building a tiered retaining wall.Plus then today, we're gonna talk in depth about why these systems are mortarless.
