    So my buddy bought a house and wanted to add a new section of driveway to make it a double wide vs. the single wide it started out as. I rented the Kubota tractor and blew the drive out of it, so we swapped it out for the S205. I dug the hole thing out close to 10inches deep and filled it full of traffic bond. when he has money he's going to finnish having it preped and paved

    Looks like it'll work. We just made our drive a 3 car wide drive. I dug out part of the side yard and then we had contractors come and pour concrete. It's poured extra wide and extra thick for my truck and trailer.

    I can't believe he hauled it all away in a p/u w/ e-z dump - lots and lots and lots and lots of trips... repeat!

    I only hauled 4 loads off, the rest got spread in the back yard and along the side of the house where i tore out a row of headges the week befor (no pic's of that). And its a Truck Craft Aluminum unit, not the cheap steel ez dumper.

    The Kubota was nice, i'd like one but the next size smaller, that one would be a little too big to get in most of my area's back yards, and if I had to dig because my machine would't fit i'd be quite unhappy vs. taking a little longer because i could have used a machine a little bigger.


    And that unit had almost 2500hours on it, so it was probably due for the rear end to go on it if not something else. They can only take so much abuse.

    Annnnd Alot of the houses in my area look the same like that. These houses were built in the 60's and there was only one or two main builders, and they only had 2 or 3 basic floor plans to you to pick from. So you get blocks of houses where there are 5 in a row just different coloured brick or different add on's over the years
