50m2* 200mm* Muddy Clay Excavation


Northcote VIC 3070, Australia

8th Sep 2023

TASK - Already flat land. Excavate top layer of muddy clay, roughly 200mm down & reflatten when done. Roughly 50m2 yard (diced up in a few rectangles) - need to be able to deal with 1.5m width at narrowest point. GOOD NEWS - direct rear laneway access with a double gate. IDEALLY FOR US - ability to take away soil MUST - Have a machine with tracks suitable for mud - soil is fully walkable in boots, but I think tyres would bog. MY OPINION - 4 - 8hrs ***2.2m x 3.5m photo not essential, but great if can be done - can decide on site. - Due date: Before Wednesday, 27 September 2023
