Road Building can be a real challenge with constant variations to location and topography. All these challenges need to be met in the most efficient way. Having a number of machinery at hand, Kerry can make the project work to the advantage of his clients. The process may include excavation with the John Deere, ditching, grading and finally 'surfaced' with core rocks and road gravel spread with the BobCat ready for the finish. These images show some of the work done by Kerry BobCat in the recent past. You will notice the challenges of the various locations from swampy land areas to hard solid rock. This kind of work requires long, hard experience and Kerry has 'oodles' of that!
A challenging section of Land
Putting a solid base into a swampy area is vital to the art of road building.
Beginning the Gravel Fill
Little by little the gravel is spread across the opening providing a solid access.
The Base is Rock Filled
Bridging a swampy area after removing the vegetation.
Bridging the Low Ground
The 'fill' of gravel will ensure that the road will be completely stablized.
Kerry's View of Work
A view from the cab as the work of cutting out the base of a new road.
Large Rocks providing the Base
The larger rocks are laid down creating solidity to hold the next gravel layer.
Using the BIG Machine
Sometimes is takes the power of a big machine to get the core removed.
Rock Breaker cutting the Ditch
Hard rock can make the creation of ditch very difficult without the use of a Rock Breaker.
