Q&A WHILE DOING MY MAKEUP! 🤍
Les Do Makeupzhlédnutí 210 509
I am loving how many uploads there’s been! I can’t imagine the hours editing and prepping you do!!
@Berty odd because I’ve seen him do projects for people in his videos that didn’t seem like friends and didn’t say they was his friends. How long have you been watching his videos for? And how many subs were there when you subscribed?
@Berty then don’t watch if you don’t like it…?
@Skidooer 583 There are no clients or business. Andrew does favours for others or creates content at the castle or the mountain. He said so himself, its not his main job. Camarata Property Management is used solely as a tax break, buying all the machines are offset against tax. He makes about $500K/year from CS-tv....he doesnt need to do that kind of work, his full time job is keeping the channel fed.
CS-tvrs get triple income at holiday time as there are more views.....they are all cucking up every spare Vid they can. It is common sense. Andrew spent $800K on equipment over the past 3 months and has a lot of catching up to do.
@Johnny SS Been watching his channel for years.
Every time I’m impressed by Andrew’s honesty: he doesn’t cut the part when he put in the wrong way the filter’s valve. It can be precious to know for other people. That is more important than look errors-proof. I’m also impressed by his handling abilities, to flip the hydraulic hammer with just the end of the boom is not for everyone. I bet if I try I can stay there a day long!
Real deal for sure
Sometimes magic happens. Andrew is a master of the machine, an artist, a natural maestro in working with equipment. If he were a typical working schlub, he would not have the time to do the things he does. But because of the natural mix of CS-tv / Andrew, he gets the funding to make it all happen. I have watched him from the beginning, and am happy to subscribe and always give a 'thumbs up' if it helps keep these videos coming. I have learned a lot from him, and laughed a lot at his subtle humor. This is my favorite youtube channel --- always a treat.
@Andrew Camarata what happened to that boulder you drilled those holes in that holds the jackhammer attachment for the excavator?
My sentiments exactly!
“Look at the toolbox I just got - it came a little pre-melted …” LOL. Always love watching your videos Andrew. Have a great week 👋
One of his best lines yet!
Thanks, Andrew, another great episode! Looking forward to seeing many more, no such thing as too much. I particularly appreciate the level of detail you put into your video composition and editing. It has to take a lot of time while trying to just get the work done, so thanks for that. Very professional; great individual stories end to end.
God I love this channel. The man, the music, the machines. Love it all! Thanks, Andrew.
Its always a good day when we get an upload from you, Andrew. Love the videos!
Yup yup ...and a drilling we will go ..a drilling we will go...high old an andrew a drilling we will go
yeahhhhhhhhh, tru right bra
Never a dull moment with Andrew's projects. Always some type of work in progress no matter the weather or the season.
Is anyone else impressed by the lifespan of that Craftsman impact driver?
@XAVIER WOZIWODA Lol, Andrew hasn't even broken that truck in yet. You should see the amount of life he got out of his previous truck! Literally held together by rebar and driven until it died. Andrew definitely gets full use of his equipment!
How about that pickup tho? 😅
I'm sure the Craftsman withstood the tests of time too. Great company
I don't have a Craftsman, but I love my old brushed Makita. I want to replace it before it dies though, I have a lot of respect for that tool.
It’s seems like a convenient amount of power. Perfect for smaller stuff and won’t break anything. Then he has the big boys for the bigger stuff.
Thanks Andrew, I loved it, I'm retired now but it brought back great memories of doing the same type of rock breaking tasks with Kubota KH41s and 8 yd scoop trams with rockbreaker mounted where the 8 yd bucket would be all underground in the mines of Timmins ON Canada!
Lovely job Andrew. You now have a driveway I would be proud of. Scenic all the way. Well done!
Hi Andrew! Thanks for another great video. I agree with another commenter, who suggested you cut the trees back that are too close to the road(10 ft). It is alot of work, but if their is one guy, its you. It would help with getting equipment in and out and reduce maintenance long term. Not sure if you covered it in your video "I bought a mountain", but a video explaining your vision for the project and some of the struggles so far would be cool. Have a great day!
Not that big of a deal with his skid steer mounted tree shear. Or just a single pass with the Koehring.
For some reason I really like when Andrew leaves the camera somewhere that I feel like I’m in danger.
I feel in danger just watching him. I've never seen a bigger improviser fly by the seat of your pants entrepreneur. 😄 haha.
I enjoyed this too without even realizing it 🤣 I love his reckless disregard for the well being of his camera equipment. Shows the filming is not really what he's there for in a way 👍
Full PPE, Safety third :p
Huh.. I can't hear you. Got my ear plugs in watching. I'd do anything for an AC video.
I got hit with a flying piece of wood, glad it wasn't a piece of barb wire. Glad I'm wearing a full face protection,
First off, I believe this is the third Andrew post in about a week which is a treat for us subs. Man that rig makes sapling cleanup a breeze. Keeping them down improves the health of older growth trees. Barbed wire was a God send for cattle and dairy farms. Goats and sheep herders as well. Pigs laugh at it and just dig under it. Most likely there was a sheep or goat farm due to the hilly nature of that area. Crop farming would be impossible.
I used to live in the area, and yeah, crops arent much of a thing there. it's like 2 inches of soil ontop of bedrock, and everywhere else is redclay.
Thank you so much for doing all of these uploads I cannot imagine the amount of time it takes to edit all these pieces together I truly enjoy and look forward to all of your videos you really make my day each time you upload one thank you very much
My thoughts exactly
Awesome progress Andrew! Such pride & attention to detail in your work. This is such an amazing legacy you are creating here. It’s not easy to conform nature. Great to have us along for the ride. 👏👏
That chipper or chopper is a time-saver-excellent purchase! Looks like the snowy day makes for a good day to burn some brush piles, and the Bell off road dump seems to be performing well👍
These are my favorite kind of videos from Andrew. Some property maintenance and setting up new things with a 51 minute video. perfect
Love this. All the 'in-between stuff' is just as cool to watch as the more formal videos. Helps connect the dots.
Andrew, I have a lot of Bosch Blue cordless tools including a hot air gun. It's almost as powerful as my corded version, and a 5AH battery lasts a surprisingly long time. It would be super useful for unfreezing locks etc.
You are absolutely the definition of "jack of all trades" always excited to watch your videos. I would love to have land and do all this. Maybe within the decade 😁
That wee Kubota seemed to be a favourite for Andrew, looks a very handy machine with plenty of hydraulic pressure to handle a lot of attachments. Great video as always 🇮🇪
@Box Five ahh I get the two confused. They are quite similar after all!
@Artem Artem The Yanmar that died was the B37, not the legendary B50. Haven't seen the B50 used much at the mountain, but it's up there, the Kx161 is just a beast it seems.
@Spacecadet yeah it looks small next to a 35 ton rock truck, D9 dozer, 993 loader, etc 😆
I see an epic burn Pile in the future
@Lorenzo Ghinelli I believe he's using the Kubota more because the Yanmar died and needs an engine. He talked about it in a recent video(might have been a b roll one). He can't decide if he wants to sell it as is or get an engine for it. Yanmars like that aren't easy to source parts for in the US. I almost threw him cash when I was at the castle in Nov for it as is, but I had no way to tow it home behind a Nissan Frontier haha.
I was binge watching past videos for the last couple of days and then get a notification of this new gem, thanks Andrew. Not sure about everyone else but I totally dig that jackhammer and whenever you bust up in ground or loose boulders. I'd love to come up there and would be happy to do nothing but bust up the big stuff all around the quarry. Can't wait for the next videos of crushing stone at the quarry!
Great video! I enjoyed watching the variety of tasks that you were working on. Your buddies are fortunate to get to operate the various kinds of equipment you have. I know that they're a lot of help to you as well. Until the next episode...
Eventually, you might want to remove the trees along the road (back 10 ft) and pick the ones you want to give room to grow. That mower works great!
I’m pretty sure he said these roads are 2 miles or something. That would take a very long time to clear and isn’t all that necessary.
@Andrew K you'd have to be crazy to take that bet. *You're on.* I think he'll be too busy with the road and other projects to worry about a roadside tree.
$20 says one of the next 3 videos will have him chopping that one tree down that was in the way
You do realize how long those roads are that you talking about? Not to mention how many roads? Have a great day.
Excavators seem to do a lot of amazing things.
Great video as always, love your content, I was curious if you find that a lot of trees and vegetation grow back when you only use the mulcher As opposed to ripping them out roots and all, I haven't had the best results with just mulching alone, especially with invasives....thanks again! Tim
Clearing all that up at the start of the video, really makes those stone walls pop out for attention. Great video! Those forestry ,mowers saves 90% of the back breaking labor in clearing a fence row or lot. Back in the day my grandfather handed me a small scythe and both cut the weeds down. I watch a few channels were they have those mowers attached to a skid steere. very impressive.
Andrew your in a class above many. Keep making videos.
Thanks, Andrew, love the excellent editing. I almost feel the chill! We don't If almost never have ice or snow, and that never lasts. It snowed and iced over here in Houston twice in one winter. two weeks apart, I worked both mornings. Most people who drove trashed their vehicles. May by 1973! Looking forward to all content.
Thanks for all the recent uploads Andrew. The longer the better 💯
He's giving great content lately glad to see him back at the top of his game.
I also am impressed with Andrews’s abilities. Seems like there’s nothing he can’t do. I’m a little surprised that he didn’t clean up that piece of pipe before he put in the tank.
I was thinking the same thing about the pick up pipe
I'm interested in some background information on the mountain property. Do you know any history of the property and that rock wall? Also, what are your plans for the mountain? Great video as always!
Little trick I learned with the transfer tank is throw a 90° going down out of the filter really helps with the hose not kninking off. Awesome video, as always.
Been looking at that same size and model flail mower, thanks for showing it making short work of your brush!
man you are killing it with the content lately! Hope you got some of the snowstorm and can ride and film, and of course get the doggos out in it. be well AC and stay safe!
Im sure there are cold days and forest chores but Andrews joy of using the right kit for the right job, is a joy to watch.
You must have missed the one where he used a chainsaw to install a radio in his PU truck it worked so I guess it was the right tool .
Imagine you are just a tree hanging out in the woods and Andrew rolls up in a big machine and places a tripod down, camera facing you. Lol
That Flail on the Kubota is quite impressive. Your 3 mile road up Camarata Mountain will need that to keep the brush down. It wont take you long with that rig. Owning properties comes with its own maintenance problems...lol. Good Job Andrew!
I like watching your videos Andrew, It's something different all the time and your a great steward of the land. Keep them videos coming man. BE SAFE AND GOD BLESS
Back in the Andrew content! I always know those gaps with shorter videos are WELL worth the wait for the content to follow!!!! Not sure what it is about watching someone else work with equipment I do all day, but you make it way more fun! Nice buddy. Been subscribed since the early Isuzu days!
Just wondering if you've encountered any significant settling in your castle.
Love your videos! It’s been a long time since we have seen the inside of your castle! The main building! Love to see an updated tour! ❤
@Michiel van den Boogaard Any way you can put a link here to that hidden b-roll playlist? I have no idea what that is.
The other dude that hangs around there has some video of it too
Look at the last upload on the 'hidden' b-roll playlist; it contains a full tour on the castle. Including the new kitchen and the semi-finished bathroom.
As a retired US Army Combat soldier, I spent many hours with little sleep. This has carried on after retirement with my PTSD. I spend many hours at night and early morning hours watching your uploads. Thank you for the videos and your countless hours of dedication toward your entertainment. How I would have enjoyed meeting you and going through a days routine. God Bless.
@Gary Moore . . That's what happens when you name your chickens, hopefully they're collecting eggs at least, those have gotten awfully expensive... we had chickens and ducks as pets as a child, my mom loved the eggs, but we didn't eat the chickens... they ran all around the backyard eating up stuff, and we kept them in the garage at night... that's back when you get your give your Altadena Dairy Man - key to the garage to put the milk in the fridge.... they had natural not homogenized or treated pasteurized milk...
Never too late to meet him! I'm sure he'd be glad to meet someone that did service!
@4 the BiRdS Thank you, I just subscribed to your channel. My daughter has a small amount of chickens which seem to have become her and her husbands pets. God Bless.
thank u 4 ur service B
It may sound strange but using your dozer to crush all that rock into gravel would be your best bet. The metal tracks would chew through it for the gravel your wanting. The roller doesn’t do so well because it’s for compacting and rubber tires can’t do what good ol metal tracks can do. Give it a try, I’m sure you’ll be happy with the results. Plus good job on greasing every time you use that hammer!
Enjoy watching your activities and notice alot more safety gear being used. Nice fuel pump setup. What is the history of the rock walls?
I have been watching Andrew for some 7 or 8 years now. Maybe even longer. I tried looking back on his page to see how far back it has been, but a lot of his older videos have been dropped off. But for all of this time, I always get happy to see another new upload!
I'm curious if Andrew has time now to do regular jobs for customers like he used to do. Drainage, driveways, snow-plowing, etc.
@Tom Dale considering some of the low life's making money on you tube it's great to see folks like Andrew putting in honest labor !
@Tom Dale yeah that's a pretty sweet deal, making money while investing in your property, and we get to experience it vicariously. I've never been so vested in a rural road being build in upstate NY, but I'm here for the ride!
@Tom Dale Yes, that is what I was thinking too. Good for Andrew, he really deserves it.
his time now since he has money comin from Utube, is in land development again he makin money filming his endeavors while increasing the value of said own properties...pretty sweet
@TheKajunkat O.K., thanks.
Andrew, I have followed you for many years now even before Levi and I must tell you that I am so proud of you, I wish I could call you my son because you are such a bright idea man and you solve so many different problems in not only your company but in your property. God bless you brother take care of yourself and those pups, give a hug to Cody and blue for me.
Hi Andrew. I recently came across your CS-tv channel and wow I love your uploads here. Just a recommendation regarding changing excavator buckets - Have a look at the Mecalac Excavator range and you might just like to add one of them to your existing fleet of equipment. The Mecalac have effortless attachment to their machines without leaving the cockpit. Thumbs up for a great channel. 👍🏽👍🏽
Been watching from New Zealand for quite a few years now and your videos are still enjoyable to watch Andrew. Would love to come over and spend a day with you one day. I shall put it on my bucket list.
I have good time watching your videos! I’m always amazed at the equipment you have or as l call it TOYS!!! You remind me of a friend of mine that have many, many toys of which he only used a few of them now and then. I was especially impressed the day when you trying to recover the roller and put new tires on it and put new tracks on something else. You used one toy right after another and it seemed like you used a half a dozen or so! I love your persistence & attitude about having a good time and you succeeded. Keep on going and never quit!!!!
My favourite kind of content from you AC. I can’t put my finger on it but how you make hammer and claw, rock and timber fascinating and compelling is alchemy.
That really did a nice job of cleaning up the road edges ,Keeping the saplings in check so they don't take over. The old rock wall is a pretty cool feature Was there a old Homestead there at some time in the past
33:50 When i was going to the mountains every weekend in the winter i'd use this lock de-icer that would thaw locks if they weren't completely iced over. I noticed using it every couple weeks and my car door would stay thawed. Worth keeping some in your work truck and on your regularly used machines. it's only a few bucks and saves a lot of time and headaches.
I have been out of the industry for 20+ years but I was around when the grid shell was developed and have sold quite a few. One would work well to help crush your rock on the road, much better than the smooth drum. You should probably upgrade to a drum drive roller if get a grid shell. As a note, vibratory rollers have killed quite a few due to there poor brakes. Ingersoll Rand got rid of their hydraulic brakes and went to air, which helped. I think the real problem is trying to stop with just one axle.
Nice job with the hammerknife, I like how quickly it spools up when doing the bigger trees. I just wish you would considered putting something on the front of the ROPS to protest you. I've run one with a side mounted arm on a big New Holland tractor that had with tempered glass. You never know when a big piece of anything will come at you !
Have you thought about a wood chipper and selling the mulch from it? Also, when using the hammer, the closer the bit is to the tracks the more pressure can be applied.
the sped up time lapse camera work is awesome.nice touch as usual Andrew!
I love all the different attachments you have for your machinery. Do you still have the Kubota excavator with the enclosed cab?
love the work Andrew, a great watch as always! just a quick question, don't think I've heard you mention it, but just out of interest, how far apart are the two properties, Castle to Hilltop, miles/time between would just fill a gap in our knowledge? Got to say, if there are any dogs that live a better life than yours, id be surprised
I liked the miscellaneous working on stuff, especially the Diesel pump install, thanks for all these videos Andrew, they are very educative for some of us, because of u and Matt@ Diesel creek i went out and bought a tracked skid steer.
Absolutely loved this video you're cleaning up everything around, breaking rock you're a very successful young man quite impressed, to my understanding at the end of the video it is Blu dogs birthday. Happy Birthday to Blu!!!
Amazing out clean up, dressing up the side of the access road / Good side shot of the new end dump: I never been around the Bell Trucks, Looks much cleaner then the others. I do hope it's easer to work on when the need would arise.
Nice video! How much fuel do you use yearly with your machines?
Always a great Day. When Andrew starts Our day with a new video. Almost looks like the road was used as main skid trail back when they logged the trees off. They could really pull a big hitch of trees. As it's mostly downhill.
I'm a 62+ year old disabled veteran and enjoy watching your videos. Your going somewhere great in life kid. Just don't be like me and get injured. Now about all I can do is lay in bed because of all my injuries. So please take the extra time needed to do things safely and you won't end up like me, watching from the side lines. God bless, take care. Disabled Navy Vet.
Hello Andrew. The road looks nicer after the brush mowing. The snowmobile trails could maybe use some of that, but that would take more than a month with someone trucking food and fuel into you. Have good days!
I noticed the trees are mostly 5 -10 years old. In Mike’s plot at least. I guess they just get turned into lumber when they reach a decent size.
Agree wholeheartedly with you on the barbed wire fence. That stuff shows up in the middle of nowhere and can change a simple job into a giant headache in no time.
Nice job cleaning up the tree's you had to remove and the deadfall also. Watched for a long time and you have come a long way from when I watched you putting in the first conex boxes to make the shop. Keep up the good work.
That little excavator does a lot of work for its size, enjoyable to watch
That blu monster pipe thread tape is the best stuff i have ever used, and it work's on just about everything. I have a shallow well pump made with stainless steel, and everything else would leak, so i read a review on this thread tape that said it worked on stainless steel when nothing else would, and they were right. I like that it's thicker than the regular crap, and work's on gas, water, and fuel. Nice tree trimmer, minus the barbed wire. G-d bless.
Great content Andrew! Enjoyed every minute of it sure hate not seeing Sam around but that's life sometimes! The right one is out there you just have to find her, Looking forward to the next video!
@Tyler Caldwell Alot of people in past comments are saying that they are no longer together! That's what i was going off of!
@Tyler Caldwell they did split up , he said it himself .
Just because she’s not in video doesn’t mean they split up lol I’ve seen Andrew’s videos span over years
I like how you can teach others to do the things you do wish you 2 good times.
Love your videos! Have you ever considered pulling a big field rake for cleanups?
Freaking love his long videos!! I don't even watch TV anymore!! Andrew is a legend!!!!
Hardest working man on the yard! Have a great day. And always a joy to watch person with the right tools for his jobs!
Andrew. You need to get a Cat 815. It does wonders for consolidating that graded rocky material. And, always love to see you with a new piece of iron. 😀 Thanks for sharing. Love your videos.
Andrew I know that you are a very busy man but I miss you working on your equipment and taking the time to show us how it goes back together. The rock crusher is on my mind I do like seeing chipper's and rock crusher doing well
It's pre-melted needs to be put on a T-Shirt LOL 😂 Love your content Andrew I could watch you for hours and never get bored. Thanks for all that you do =)
Andrew I saw on youtube a large roller meant to break done rocks. Instead of one big solid roller, it had a blade with gaps between the blade. So it rolled them and broke them into smaller road-size fill.
I know Andrew’s not sat down and discussed the full project plan as far as I’m aware but slowly you can see all the separate jobs starting to come together on the road build for one.
Andrew da man, not only owns these machines, he maintains and repairs them...and what he can repair, he improvises.🙂
Had great luck with those pumps, one thing I do is get another chunk of pipe and 90 exiting the filter so it doesn’t kink the hose, just a thought. Love the videos!
Andrew…… going up that mountain everytime sure is an adventure for you, but you survive it !!, always impressed by your resourcefulness……… take care Andrew !!!!!
I love the way it just shreds those unwanted little trees like that.
Yeah barbed wire is menacing when encountered underfoot - not exactly a usage that Glidden intended, to be fair to him. As ever, great to watch you work, thanks for filming AC.
Ain't Google grand? No barbed wire? That would be fine, I guess, for vegetarians and people who eat at BowWow Jr.'s.
That’s a very useful machine, I’d imagine a lot more useful in many ways than the brush hog you have. Do your dogs ever have problems with cold paws after being out in the snow 😂😂
Thanks so much for these Andrew, exactly what I needed 😌
Can’t wait to see this fully rocked and rolled that’s gonna be awesome
Love that he started putting up more content. Hope he is doing okay.
Have you thought about building a partially bermed house on top of your mountain? It would be fireproof. You certainly have the machines to dig. It would be extra protection against wind and weather. You would have a fantastic view over the valley from the window side. Just a thought.
Pretty sure he has something in mind…
Really enjoyed this. Very interesting and relaxing. Thank you guys. Must have cost allot of money to get all the tools and equipment?
Thanks, Andrew, for another great video... Love the "pre-used" melted tool box...
Whenever andrew drops three videos consistently I be so happy but deep down I know it will be a while before he upload again
Just subscribed to your channel after watching how you're using rock from your mountain top property to make a functional roadway. Amazing! I was curious about what you do with all the wood you harvest from your property. Do you sell it or use it to barter for things you need? Dave Ottawa, Canada
I was just giving the wood away.
What you really need is one of those vibrating compactors with with a toothed or studded roller. That would work wonders for breaking up all that rock.
Pick-up manufactures ought to have you test their trucks. You are certainly on the side of testing them. Thanks Andrew! You videos keep me company at my work...
Andrew , another CS-tvR made a storage socket out in the field to store the Hammer on and angle so as not to loose it in snow or leaves. I thought I see one at your shop made of steel , the other guys was concrete left over from a job.Good to point out to viewers the flow direction , great investment , but will a fuel truck deliver to the mountain? Any sign of a chipper/mulcher to grind wood for customers gardens?
