I have followed him for a long time. Very finished hobby. Wonder what he will do when he finishes the basement? Guess he can start cleaning out cattle pens with them.

I did the same thing with my first house. Ceiling height in the basement was 5' 10", but the footing for the walls was down another 2 feet. So I busted up the floor, dug out 10" of dirt, and re-poured concrete to end up with 6' 3" by the time I was done. I used a sledge and 5 gallon pails for the concrete. (about 25% of the old concrete fit in the old cistern, though) The dirt was loaded out by wheel barrow to an electric conveyor belt that was just long enough to load out a basement window into a one ton flatbed with a hoist. I did have a remote control backhoe at the time, and I did bring it down there when we started the dirt ex. My dad, my FIL, BIL, four friends and myself. When I jokingly started to mess with the backhoe, my dad (not jokingly) offered to cram that toy somewhere. The concrete took me a week by myself, the dirt took 5 hours. The guy in the video has some crazy skills.

I have a friend in Hawaii who is digging out his basement by hand. So far he has moved out 130 pickup loads of dirt. Fortunately the soil there is pretty soft. If he had to do it in NC he would have killed himself by now.

The fact that those little guys are hydraulic amazes me. I want to research these more!

I wonder if, when he is through excavating, he will bring in a fleet of little cement trucks to finish it off.
