Buying a new to me Cat 930 wheel loader, greasing it, then moving some dirt.
How do you know how much to charge people?
Nice old loader. If you were to push your pile Easy and at the same time steadily tilt the bucket back to you. This way it’s easy on the machine and your bucket will be 100% full.
Sandblast it and paint it your signature black.
Levi and Codi love being on site. They love being a few yards in front of the machines. Yellow Labs are great and loyal breads.
When you buy a piece of used equipment it is pretty much a hit or miss proposition, what is the chance of the seller let you take the injectors off to check compression to see if it is even I would say none. A rebuilt of the engine is the most expensive thing, so one draws from their past experience operating. It is not fun buying a piece of used equipment I have done it twice and I fucken hate it, if you miss you lose a lot of money. The good thing is there aren't many folks selling construction equipment and big companies tend to give proper maintenance to engines. Thought I would help out the guy that asked what do you look for when buying pieces of equipment.
I like it how SEblacks AI captions says: “Applause. [Music]” when the tractor is running.
We in Ireland 🇮🇪 call them Shovels. My cousin has a big Doosan in his quarry.
Is Levi still around
@Andrew Camarata RIP Levi
Great tip on the acid test for whether a piece of equipment has been well cared for. AAAAA+++++
Moving some dirt! YES!
Another tip look at the fuel an hydraulic tank if both are full they can't corrode that easily. If the fuel tank is only half full its maybe rusted to the half and the rust can harm or harmed the engine very bad
Best you can do is clean the fuel tank before ruining the machine and change oil and fuel as well as all filters
Nice to see that some lansdcaping has been added to the castle grounds. What? Those are weeds? Huh. I love this guy. Every time he fixes something, he has to fix something else.
Grease gun most important tool you can own.
Great drone shots!!
Just another suggestion, when loading the bucket try to avoid spinning tyres as that wears them out fast, the trick is to start lifting the bucket when it's half full and your still moving forward. Also with your bulldozer work, speed wears out dozer parts fast.
can you show next time how you work in equipment first person
I wonder where he buys all his equipment from?
Why is this so satisfying to watch? I'm loving it.
how much do you pay?
Hello there Andrew. Ealy is looking good for his age. He's a nice old friend to you.
He buys a machine and immediately puts it to use (after greasing). There is no better way to tell whether a machine is in good shape or not. Whether the joints rattle or not will be an indication of how long it will be before line boring is on the menu. Looks like a good, strong. solid machine.
Worse fill I've ever seen. More rocks than dirt. Hope it's not a lawn.
Thank Heavens the pipe belonged to someone else !
how much is it??
Seeing Levi made me tear up, but it was a great video!
Hey kids! This is the best job ever to slowly start on your own!!! You'll always be in demand. You'll also have all the tools and equipment to fix your own machinery, construct your own property and build your own house, your kid's houses, and your grandkid's houses.
. . . Needs paint and some sandblasting in some spots. Have a blaster yet?
Andrew dump some seafoam in at 9:55 you got there that rubber tire loader here to help a whole lot on getting it started and cutting the smoke down
Wow is all I can say. 👏
Hey Andrew when you open that grease tub up take a 8 or 10 inch drywall knife and in a circle motion on the sides you can clean all that grease thats collected on the sides. With what I saw on the inside you may have enough grease for another month or so.
Motor sounds good, it digs into the pile really well and doesn’t sound sloppy in the joints. That seems like really good condition for the age. Well cared for. Good buy.
God Speed little One ❤
You need to get a scraper. Like what the farmers use behind a big tractor
Love the low flying drone shots sweeping along the side!
What brand is that wheel loader ?
Whatever condition you got it in it's going to be 100% better than what you got it when you first got it when the elbow grease starts flowing. 👊💪🤙🇺🇸🤘🎸🔩😭🤣
I hope we can see andrew paint it new again, i dont know why but i love seeing him repaint the used equipment.
sorry @Andrew for saying, but you need to luern how to work with a loader, you are wasting time and mony, u can flatten the soil every revers you take and pushing more then loading, i work as loader operator for more then 20 years, pleas check you tube for how to operate a loader efficiently, chears man
whats the size bucket compared to the skid steer?
Poor Levi. The greatest of the great
Why don't you clean it up man it looks like s*** right now
RIP Levi ❤️
6:25 So in the end, did Phil feel moved?
Machines with articulated steering are really awesome.
That bucketloader is to heavy for this transport combination! You need a semi!
No its not, that's a 20 ton trailer.
That old dog still alive...wow! Hope he does a few more nice years WEll i just saw that he passed away....im sorry
If a Dog is 15 That means you took great care of him, good man. God Speed
Nice tractor. AMAZINGLY crappy job on that house wrap though. Those people are going to have a shit ton of rot.
Love AC's vids, but once again i ask, How come the selfie stick disappears when he films?
That blue trailer of yours, what weight does it support? That wheel loader has to be at least 25-30 tons , that’s like 60000 pounds
Nice work Andrew 🇺🇲
I don't understand why you have the bucket up in the air. Do really trust the parking brakes .
RIP Levi.. Good Old Dog
We have a Cat 920 at my work, worst wheel loader ever :D
Geez that things loud without the exhaust
what is the last song ?
Haven't watched in a while. That sure is a nice looking truck and trailer!
Your toys keep getting bigger 😁
Need to get me a loader, great video thanks mate
I remember levi
Andrew the Machine is bigger than the Dump Truck lol!!!!
This is what's called tax write offs for people that never owned a business kinda like how Trump writes things off butt on a much grander scale???? So for all you Democrats out there Biden Klan doesn't own a business so what's his excuse??? Trump 2024
It's sad knowing this was one of the last times we saw Levi. :(
You seem like you like Cat equipment. Are they pretty reliable?
Love the company logo on the truck, Andrew!
When i was working a wheel loader i found it best drive into the material then lower the bucket as you tilted it towards you. The stuff I was loading tended to fall out of the bucket as soon as you tilted the bucket. I found out when I was actually loading dirt you got more into the bucket using the same technique. I miss operating wheel loaders.
came to watch the project, stayed for the synthwave music
Sorry for your loss man.
Next thing to buy should be a "medium large" chipper. Biggest I've used was 12 hp so perhaps double that or whatever a smaller tree service uses.
Am I the only one to think there are far too many adverts?
16:34 Some of the saddest words you will hear, RIP Levi.
@Clint The Great maybe I should be glad I missed it as I'm sure my allergies would act up to
@Bill Van Dorn Andrew made a video about Levi's life and passing. I can't watch it as my allergies act up and my eyes water too much.
@WinGate Mose oh my I did not know. It's comforting knowing that when we cross the bridge they will be there for us on the other side
Makes me want to cry and just saying this sentence was a challenge.
Yes ! Levi pass away June 4, 2021, two days before his 15th birthday. So very sad. Andrew is definitely going to miss his fur child son ,sidekick ,trusted companion and Job Site Supervisor. Levi ,had a wonderful life because of Andrew. RIP Levi 🙏🙏🙏❤ May God Bless Andrew and little brother Cody.
You could of did that in 1 hour if you had a real crawler loader.
1Mil subs!!!!! So close
The robust december collaterally rejoice because detail worryingly cycle notwithstanding a xenophobic stock. tender tense, descriptive goldfish
lovin' the new? company logo on the dumptruck door. You should be selling hats and shirts with it if you aren't already
CBD drops for dog from Charlottes Web online can greatly reduce pain from arthritis, gi issues, other problems. Just a suggestion. Love the channel, found you from the Castle Project - Chuck Palahniuk's book of short stories covered 3 men in the US that built castles, a great read.
I wonder who's operating the drone or if it has some kind of autopilot thing because he's not controlling it when he's on the wheel loader
Doing 67 hours a week on a loader for a long time, your loader operating was painful to watch. But that's just me I'm a picky bastard when it comes to loaders!
@Andrew Camarata all good man, you'll get better, I was going to say its probably the 1st time you've ran that loader, but I hit the send button before I typed it. Keep up the good work, certainly no way near the worst operating I've ever seen.
This was my first time operating this loader.
Yeah Andrew camarata, the timelapse of your videos is incredible, also your buddy looks a little bit adult than the other guy.
Whomever is flying the drone is doing a great job of recording you working, Andrew!! Cheers to Her, I hope!! It is always nice to be or have a helpmate!!
Backup alarm is missing/unhooked? Next step up as the business grows will be ... a 980 and then a 988. FWIW ... The 988 is the cash-cow for Caterpillar, much like the D10.
@Andrew Camarata Congrats on the GIANT step. No need to even think about THE 992. The next thing to match up with the 988 for max productivity is a CAT 769 truck... or a CAT articulated dump truck to start with. Enjoying your out-of-box problem solving. :-)
Funny you mentioned that. I just put a deposit on a 988b
Rip Levi ;'(
Levi baby you getting old papi
Andrew your videos are starting to look blurry and you always do good video so why are they coming out like this
Looks clear to me. If you are on mobile SEblacks updated the app where it doesn’t show the exact quality you have to go into advanced
This is crystal clear 5k video. Make sure you have it set to 5k. or the max your display is capable of.
Awesome dogs! And nice loader too😉
Great drone videos!
Is it bad I wanted something to break. For video watching purposes
i feel a tad disappointed that you didnt disassemble the engine but happy for the great buy
U need to update the lights on it
Good job but way to much adverts spoiling the vlog
Now days even if he turns the ads off they will still be there he just won’t get paid from it
I think you love the adverts to much
Thought u said Cody on the video. I was gonna say Cody really put on some years.
The superficial dragonfly universally deserve because plywood ignificantly whirl till a giant music. charming, guarded fish
Great footage there especially by drone while backfilling house!
Levi still working well into his retirement but still wants to supervise and do inspections. That’s dedication. 👏🏻 🍻
