We have had a couple of nice days so it was an opportunity to finish of the bog hole in the driveway and give the new tractor a workout.
I scooped out the mud which was almost 600mm deep and backfilled with bluemetal, we got the tractor in February this year to replace the ancient grey fergie, despite it’s size it is a more powerful unit and can scoop up to about 350kg although I suspect I have lifted more.
Filled the hole and left it for two weeks to settle then today topped it up and spread it evenly with the bucket dragging it backwards.
For small jobs like this the bucket works well although I do have a grader which can be a pain in the arse to put on and remove.
Levelling off took me about two hours then I scooped more mud from the front of the shed and backfilled so I had about a 5 hour session all up today.
