Apparently smart enough to dig 3 bigger ponds with a "drag line crane" here on my homestead, including this one by my shop.

My dad enlarged my uncles pond with his trackhoe. He just started at the back end away from the dam and excavated back up the holler it is in. Made it quite a bit longer.
It does have a pretty good size boom on it though and the ground was decently solid enough to work on.

Nice pond pics there.

Just my 2˘ worth of gas for the fire ...

I Googled "enlarging a farm pond" and got this article from Pond Owner Magazine. They actually have a magazine for pond owners!?! Who'd a thunk it?
