Hi.Goldone I watch very little reality crap.From what I can gather Tony beets may have got a start and may even have made some mining before he got a Discovery channel.Discovery is his gold mine.From the little I have watched.I have never seen Tony get his hands dirty.He is the most vulgarman and treats his family like dog shit.Still never seen Tony use a shovel or a pan.Soapy Smith comes to mind every time I see that has been hippy.Luck Mcbain.
I started out with nothing Istill have most of it.

I was surprised they fixed up that tug boat , only to realize that its top end heavy. What a waste of money. ..then there barge was too big to fit under the bridge. ..duh.
 But, I look forward to watching the show for some reason.

Here some facts for the article  Dredges are free, they are pile of scrap metal that comes with the claim. Discovery paid 1 million dollars to Tony for the show. Tons of gold bucket lines dredges are in use in Russia and Asia.
Tony is the Manager for Tamarack but he has his own stuff and dredge project. He's the one that had the idea and balls for the rebuilding the dredge.
The Beets are a good family and most get along. Tony drives like a madman but I am no angel. Every guy that hasnt seen a woman or a drink in 1-2 weeks drive the same.

You said you watch very little reality crap but did you take the time to open that link and read the story?  As far as getting his hands dirty, I guess you missed seeing him with sledge hammers, welders, and operating some of the heavy equipment in a number of the episodes but with that said, you don't build up and manage a company just to stick around and do all the labor work for the television series.  I think he's at the stage where he's done his time in the field and it's now time to manage the operation. 

How can you possibly tell from the show that he's vulgar, as they constantly leave out sections of the subtitles for some reason and an annoying piece of heavy equipment keeps beeping while they're trying to record him while he's talking?   <-laugh->

I Enjoy watching Tony and His Family, However, You don't get the Real Story when the Hollywood Mentality sets in! I think Tony's a pretty Shrewd Businessman behind the Scenes!
