      OK Andrew I watched the other video it seems that they are copying the way you do your videos. not to be negative to the other people, but yours is by far way better!!

        One of his videos came up in my recommendations. Was gonna say you needed a stump ripper, but after watching him use it I think your method of just using the excavator bucket is quicker unless a stump is like right next to a building or something

          Here in Germany you would probably go to Prison for that loaded trailer :D

          At 8:24 the first strap is twisted & the second one isn't. You should always twist the strap or it will vibrate violently in the wind.

              You should pitch this to netflix.

              How? From the indiwire website:

              Step 4: Get the Show to Netflix

              How did that happen? Well, when “Residue” was completed in its newfound form as a television show, distributor Content Media brought the show to the October 2014 MIPCON, a trade show held in Cannes that serves as a marketplace for international television. They also made sure that Netflix got a chance to see it in advance.

              “That really began the sales pitch,” Harrison said. “We had a number of entities who were interested in it, but Netflix wanted to take it off the table.”

              The show is now available for streaming in English-language territories; a global launch will roll out over the course of the year. In the meantime…

                    I like that kubota! Seems like a nice machine. I just bought an older(KH90) Kubota mini ex and so far I am impressed with it. Loving the videos man, keep up the good work!

                          Andrew. I love your videos man. Learning a lot from you and your maintenance of equipment and what not. But please heed my advice. Please start wearing heating protection. Over the years these machines will take a toll on your hearing. Thanks again for all of the videos. I especially like the ones about repairing things. Take care.

                              Dude I have a stressful job and I watch your videos as therapy. Its stuff I can relate to but your editing is superior and the content is better than anything else I have found. There are a a lot of Youtube Channels but how you engage us with installing some corrugated pipe in a driveway with some crush and run is an art form. well done brother. Keep them coming and ill keep watching. wish i could subscribe twice.

                                We got between 9" and 18" of snow, Andrew, and have been without electricity in our western Oregon county for 6 days. Our heavy, wet snow pulls down power lines, no phones. No internet, NO ANDREW. Sweetie fixed the generator pull and is repairing the porch that collapsed over the generator and BBQ. Your weather looks better than ours.

                                    that video of the tree was deceptive it looked like it was only about 6 inches in diameter on the that rock until he began cutting on it... : ) cameras take 100's of pounds and inches off trees : )

                                          Andrew, I can tell that you love what you do and that it’s totally natural to you. You are blessed with a good work ethic, a healthy body and a technical mind. With those things there’s nothing you cannot accomplish. I wish more young people would look up to folks like yourself instead of these psychopaths in music, tv/movies and in sports. Keep up the hard work. You just never know who’s life you might be changing when you live your life in authenticity to yourself!

                                                          I wasn't afraid of a Kubota with 10,000 hours. But I wouldn't buy a John Deere with 400 hours on it.

                                                          IDK, it depends on the excavator. Some machines are junk when they are new, some last forever. Usually stuff made in Japan last a long time. Especially if it has no electronics.

                                                                  • Andrew Camarata

                                                                    I figure $138 a year for music is a pretty good deal, ill read a bit more into the fine print.

                                                                    It seems like there is good stuff on there. Will it be copy right safe for ever though? I have heard story's of channels having all their videos claimed years later because they were using copyrighted songs.
