Certainly not the brightest bulb in the strand! Cutting fuel filters open with a angle grinder?? He's lucky they didn't catch fire!


Just say NO to thin oils and M1!

The filter cutting part....meh. I didn't think anything of it. I've never heard of the guy but I watched a large portion of the linked video and really enjoyed it. Neat job, nice editing and loved the views from his drone. Thanks for the video!

If it did, it would be a slow burn, nothing like gas.

His videos are an acquired taste but I like the guy. Man is not afraid of work. Andrew digging dirt, paving roads and knocking down trees while using a fleet of used equipment he keeps running is very watchable.

He's in YOUR neck of the woods.

Check his other videos - pretty fascinating.

Yup I will watch more of his videos as time permits. I subscribed to his channel and skimmed through the titles to see that he has a good number of videos posted.

I saw the NY plates and was wondering where he was located. I looked up his website and see that he's about 140 miles SE from my home area.

Anyone know what engine is in that Ford dump truck (the one that had the plugged fuel filter)? Just curious.

I've only seen one video so far, but I'm interested for the same reasons you've mentioned above. I have two cousins that are much like Andrew in what they do, how they go about things as well as the machinery they buy and their ability to use/repair it. I don't think they'll ever be on the tube, though.
