  • wrong teeth installed, those are for asphalt or concrete, you need the more slender type

  • Maybe you need a way to disconnect the trench wheel from the main drive and add a crank so you can reverse it?

  • I’m curious why did you not just loosen the tension er for the wheel it’s like right there?. Or use a chain jack to pull it together Ps don’t forget you need to lube that chain often dam things are expensive

  • Andrew: Marvelous video-- as usual. I've always been impressed by your use of eye and hearing protection, but those carbide teeth cutting through hard rock produce quantities of very fine abrasive dust that will get into your lungs and destroy lung tissue. You need to add a respirator when you are working with that rock saw. I know respirators are hard to find. I recently bought three respirators that I thought were suitable for COVID-19 protection of myself and others, but turned out to be worthless for protecting others because they don't filter exhaled air. I would be happy to mail these and the extra filters I bought to you.

  • On a side note, Andrew is coming to us from a most famous town, Saugerties NY. In 1969, The Band recorded "Music from Big Pink" in Saugerties in New York States. Hudson Valley. The album was called by many the greatest and most important music of its time. A beautiful part of the country.

  • Not seen mention of correct chain length. Count links, not inches. Lots of water as lubricant rather than dust suppressant!

  • I use one similar to this! One I used was a big chain saw type and worked good, but slow as hell! 👍🏻 Went the length of a football field took all day 10 hrs! Next day went back and filled it all in after they put the wires in!

  • A simple guide wire or string followed by a simple coat hanger type guide would improve the performance dramatically. A curved trench adds unnecessary stress and time to create on the trenching wheel. Cutting efficiency by as much as half.

    bob mccannbob mccann28 kun oldin
  • 3/4's of the dust is just re-injected into the freshly cut cavity and flung around. A series of a few simple sweeps and or deflectors are badly needed to correct this. Most of these machines have the guards deflectors and sweeps never maintained.

    bob mccannbob mccann28 kun oldin
  • Some badly needed accessories and or options needed. The guide blocks for deflecting out the large stones are worn and or just plain missing. Both on the wheel and inside of the box. A deflector for the spoils is missing or out of adjustment. A simple water nozzle would greatly reduce the amount of dust thrown up by the spinning wheel.

  • Good grief! I have seen some butchery and tool / machine abuse, but that chain replacement and trying to free the cutter from that stuck rock takes the cake! Painful to watch! I would not let your near anything I owned if that is how you treat tools and machinery! : ( I bet your favourite tools are a hammer and an oxy-acetylene Cutting torch! Holly : ( (Edit) . . Frankly, I am surprised that you still have all your fingers, or have any machinery at all that is not destroyed through abuse!

  • I hate that it broke. It's like a damn balancing act. You get brand new, never been used equipment, and you pay more but it doesn't break. You get older, used equipment and you save money but you're losing hours/$s doing repairs. Which is safer/more profitable? Who knows. The only thing I know is I love your videos. Keep up the good, hard work. We are learning so much.

    Nicholas WahpepahNicholas WahpepahOy oldin
  • What a hard job but finally seems done. One question. Before dumping the power lines in conduits inside the trench, do you need to create a 6 inches or so, gravel base for the water to find its way elsewhere, rather messing with the electrons?!

  • some of that old chain will make a good vice to hold a hydraulic cylinder tightly while you're undoing it. i saw your other video trying to dismantle it. if you could buy one its probably called a chain vice. i have 2. not for holding big cylinders though. i've lined them up on the bench (about 400mm apart) so they both grip the same thing. i also solved the problem of holding round things in a bench vice. i cut a v in each of the soft jaws. i hope this helps someone.
