This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum. Completing this BB is part of getting the sand badge in earthworks.
In this video, from time 2:21 to 5:21, an excavator is used multiple times to scoop up soil for the creation of a swale.
You will be learning how to use an excavator in this BB by scooping up soil three times with an excavator.
To get certified for this BB, post three pics.
- Your untouched soil and you in the excavator
- Progress about half way through that shows you using the excavator to scoop soil
- Three piles of soil and the hole in the earth that you have made with the excavator
