HOw do you like the small Kubota tractor in pic 2?? I have been thinking of purchasing one for small jobs. Do you like it better than a skidsteer??

Howd you get all the material to the site... do you have a dump trailer to tow behind your truck?

yea that tractor is the best for doin mulch jobs. doesnt tear apart the lawn like a skid steerer would do. but it doesnt have much power for doing anything else. i have a york rake and tiller for it for prepping new lawns. works great.

i used my 10,000# dump trailer to get the mulch there, but i had the topsoil delivered in 3 20 ton loads.

i used my mini ex to spread the topsoil to build the beds, and spread some of the mulch. with the tractor to spread most of the mulch.

i also put in a stone driveway there with my mini x the same day. it was a very productive day. 20 ton load of 1 1/4 stone.

na the people are putting in the plants on their own, which is perfectly fine with me.
