I have a SCUT tractor with a FEL. I'm wondering if it's at all feasible to dump small piles of the riversand around the yard and then back drag it with the loader. I would then use a drag mat like the one Gulfjoe used to smooth every thing over. Any thoughts?
Might try to strike a deal with local golf course to rent thier topdresser thus saving on labor. Get sand from a dirt supplier. Buy or maybe rent drag mat from same golf course.
