  • I would have thought all the foam you paid for under the container would have dragged of

    • Nah, those ribs are too close together.

  • Had that container bounced again or just one of those tires slipped, the already compromised structural integrity of that box would have been damaged beyond repair. The sides are the strongest link with half the walls already blown out, it definitely got ruined more lol. I cringed when that chain went thru the "center" bc you know the builder/owner took time on welding that window frame- damn...

  • Would it not of been easier to hook it to the blade and pick it up some and then drive backward??

  • The c can has hook point on each side, I would have hooked to them to tool it over so I didn’t bend or mess anything up, just me I guess🥴

  • I wonder how much foam is left underneath that container now?

    bradh74bradh7411 kun oldin
  • so about the spray foam underneath? Won't it almost certainly become the home of at least a dozen mice? Not that they'll have a way in, but still, is it in any way a reasonable concern?

  • do you think if you turned and pulled backwords while lifting the blade would have worked better it workes for me on dragging huge logs

    • No, it would just tilt the machine, way more power dragging off the draw bar.

  • Does that spray foam on the bottom do anything since all those ribs are metal?

  • Even cut up, I guess you can be pretty rough with those containers! LOL.

  • You could have used a couple skids there and that would have went much easier and the bottom foam wouldn't have gotten all torn up.

  • wow , thats a bright idea to have windows and solar panelsso close to the trees , a nice shade and view of big tree you can touch

  • You should use wheels under the container

    JoeJoe29 kun oldin
  • They should've placed the container where it is going, or close... tip it, do whatever underneath, spray foam it, place it in it's home (hopefully a few inches away) then cut it up and build the inside...

  • I really would remove a few trees for sunlight vis-a-vis the solar panels, also to do some gardening. Otherwise, pretty great little spot!

  • Surely some sort of skid plate under the front edge would have made the job a lot easier - not trying to drag 600 lbs of dirt and doing so much less damage to the underside.

    Nigel SkeltonNigel SkeltonOy oldin
  • When you pulled the container over why didn’t you pull it from the lifting pockets rather than the window that had been cut into it? Surely would have been a stronger option. Great video though and slowly working back through your catalogue of work! 👏👏👍

  • As many of those containers you move, I'm surprised you haven't made some sled runners to stick in the holes of each corner of the container.

    ikkuranusikkuranus2 oy oldin
  • Considering they knew they were going to have to cut down some large trees to get the container to the final site, I'm surprised they didn't cut them down earlier and make a skid for the container rather than dragging it all or creation like that. The whole thing seems arse backwards to me.... but then what do I know!?

    John SmithJohn Smith2 oy oldin
  • The solar panels look a bit silly under all those trees, it's a catch 22 though because containers tend to get baking hot in the sun so you don't want it in the sun either. I guess the ideal is to have the container in the shade, but solar panels someplace else in the sun.

    RussellRussell2 oy oldin
  • This guy is rough and reckless,all that foam insulation gets sprayed underneath and then you drag the container 1000-2000 feet.Then you have solar panels but very little sunlight getting thru because to many trees.

  • I love your videos but also I have to say it's sad to see up state NY disappear 50 to 100 trees at a time. I'm no tree huger but how long can it last. It seems like every time you send your drone into the sky I'm seeing more and more spots where someone else cut out 100 trees to make there dream home in the beautiful forest of NY. It's kind of like that short film I saw once where this crew of workers shows up and parks in front of this beautiful forest. They go to work with chainsaws and Bulldozers and clear out about 200 beautiful trees and smooth out the land. Then the carpenters arrive and began building this huge Bill board with lights and all. After they finish and leave the camera pans up where you can see the front of the sign which reads simply. HELP PROTECT OUR FOREST. It's okay though because they planted several new trees purchased at a local nursery.

  • The crown of stupidity is here... They roll and spray the bottom of the container Then scratch it below, through this movement operation.😡 Spare me ....🥤😂 Either , he is totally stupid, OR he plays his role Very Well..😎 Both ways, he has regular audience and "likes". Double Bravo , for his generated noise and promotion ......😠

  • Andrew, I am sure that you have heard about these shipping container wheel kits, but I wanted you to have the link to the 6 minute video anyway, just in case you do more projects like this video here involves. You are probably capable of making this rig yourself, if you did not want to buy it. I have surrounded the link in quotes. Just click on the blue print to view the wheels video link. ""

  • Should of cleared a road and put that thing on some dollies instead of dragging newly sprayed foam on jagged rocks for thousands of feet. Then again how would they ever know hot air rises cold air sinks. You wont get much cold air from the floor anyway but just saying I wouldn't have dragged it like that
