15 yards of gravel

Can I move it in one day with my B series Kubota? 5y only needs to go 15 feet and the other 10 about a hundred feet. I am very limited in where it can be dumped because of an asphalt driveway. For this purpose the loader will lift about 700 lbs. Thanks

The average Lawnsite member probably has no idea what a "B series Kubota" is. Perhaps a picture or a description would help.

There are 24 hrs in a day.

And 15 cubic yards of material.

That's 1.6 cubic yards per hour.

So yes, I'm officially declaring that you CAN do it....

I was able to shovel 20 yards of top soil in 18 hours with 2 labors, by shovel and wheel barrow, I bet that kubota could get rid of the 15 yards of gravel quit faster

Sorry - I forgot the hardscapers are probably using skid steers not CUTs. I am used to posting in the lawn or tractor forums!
A B series Kubota is a compact diesel tractor with 29 horsepower. Mine has a Loader and backhoe and weighs about 2500lbs.
1.6 cy per hour and I'm done in a little over 9 hours.

I had a b7800 and it definetely could move 15yds gravel in way less than that time, even my 2360 could do that quite easily.

Actually it is only 0.625 yds per hr.

Before I got my skid I would rent B21's a fair amount. I could move about 10yds per hour 100' with rough grading.
