Recommended Construction Equipment - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



New Forno Bravo Forum Feature

Forno Bravo Forum Community,

You will notice a new forum at the top of the main page called, "Ask Me Anything". This forum will be used for live one hour "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) sessions hosted by people who are knowledgeable in different areas pertaining to wood fired ovens. How it works:
- Each AMA will have a "sticky" thread where the community can post questions they would like answered during the live session. This will allow everyone to participate even if you can't be online for the live session. These questions will not be answered by the host until the live AMA; if you need an answer quickly, you should post it in the appropriate Forum area for the community to respond.
- Another thread will be posted for the live AMA. Registered users who are logged in during the live session can interact with the host by asking questions and receiving responses.
- The live thread will remain in the AMA forum to view after the session.

To kick off our AMA feature, we have invited author, chef and master bread maker and host of Pizza Quest, Peter Reinhart, to be our first host! Peter will be in the Forum on Monday, February 15th, from 7:00 - 8:00 pm EST. If you are unable to be online during the live session, you can post your questions in the sticky post. Peter will answer those questions during the live session on February 15th. You can view Peter's answers to your questions as well as what happened during the live session in the session thread.

We hope you enjoy this new feature! Please let us know if there is a topic that you'd like to have as an AMA and we'll look for a host!

  • Recommended Construction Equipment

    This is probably in the wrong area of the list - my apologies

    I've seen some very informative posts on masony tools, masonry saws, concrete mixers, etc.

    I haven't seen much on heavier equipment.

    I have some earth to move in my back yard. Not alot but there is a berm to skim the top off and some general levelling.

    I've had only limited exposure to a Bobcat and found that I was not too effective at scraping dirt (- like cutting the tops off berms) as I thought I should be. I'm in the southeast US - hard red clay. In my inexperienced hands I found it was very good at tearing up the grass!!! It did get the job done, though and was about the most legal fun I've ever had for 250 bucks!!! Had a decent lawn again about 9 mos later. - but I digress.

    I saw the other day at the rental store a ditch witch skid steer. looks like a mini bull dozer with tracks that you stand behind to operate. Has anyone had any experience with those interms of earth moving and in terms of using it to move piles of gravel and sand as I put in the subbase for my pizza oven foundation and patio?

    Anyone have better suggestions on what I should rent?

    Should I even rent? I know it depends greatly on the area, but anyone have a general feel for how much experienced labor could I get for the 250 daily fee for the bobcat? The stand up skid steer is about 150 a day.

    This is a great list - thanks for all the help!
