    Rent a tractor and I'm sure you'll have a line of Tundra guys out the door wanting to smash rocks with it. Myself included haha

    I shouldn't need blast blankets or dirt cover, so it should blast pretty good.

    Just show up. CO has the best economy in the states right now. A huge shortage in all construction jobs.

    Oh I have used those hydraulic hammers with good luck. The guy doing the job for me doesn't have one or probably doesn't want to use one (hard on hydraulics).

    I will get some quotes on blasting, but if they are $6-10K, I have a feeling a backhoe with a hydraulic fracture head will be used. I can get both for 1500.00 per week.

    Not sure how well this hammer will work though. It has been a little while since being on a Cat Backhoe, and the spot that needs to be cleared out is rather large. If pulling 10-12 hour days for a week, might be able to pull it off.

    Drill a hole. Stick of explosives, det cord......green hand with shovel for aftermath? I can't imagine you need approval for that in Colorado. Or rent a portable rock crusher, or hire a company with a rock crusher.

    You are making too much sense. No fun in that. (By the way, I know someone in Drain ,Ore that could rent a rock crusher. Really)

    So here are some more pics of what I need done. Looking at this, a bigger backhoe should do the trick.

    The tree and corner that is blocking the Excavator needs to go. However, this is where the huge rock starts.

    By taking out this corner, it does open up the property a bit (good and bad I guess) and lets me keep some good views.

    That's one hell of a view. By the way, where the hell did that big ass rock come from?

    That is what I am dealing with Matt, just on a grander scale.

    We looked for months to find that property. It really wasn't on the market, but we offered cash and they took it.

    I'm thinking you did real good. (bout time). Seriously, very nice piece of property. Nice.. Keeper type property, as in grand kids pass it on property.
