    Might as well join the bandwagon and post some pictures of what I do all day.

    Started this job and have been working there off and on for the last 3 weeks building a 14,000Sq ft horse arena, barn pad (30'x48') build a 1/2 acre pond, grade and clear about 4 acres of pasture, and several other things.

    First off we bought a brand new dozer for this job!

    I think you're catching up to me on being a picture slut there, Chris.
    Doing that arena with the fines is exactly how we do it too, build it thick and high in the center and plow it down with the dozer and skid steer.
    Nice work (and pics) as always!

    nice work!!!!!!! can i come work for you?

    haha i have worked all summer with me and two other guys on 7/10's of an acre... we started on the drainage in the beginning of june and did all the dirt work from there on. now we only have a kubota tractor, cat mini ex, cat backhoe and we still cant get any freakn headway. we are making beds for the landscaping this week becuz the boss man is so freakn slow!! and makes me and the other guy do hand work becuz he doesnt feel like doin it with a machine.. i know i could do it with a machine but he wont freakn let me run anything since i showed him up digging grade on the mini ex. sorry just really aggravated becuz i wasted my summer with him...... ok i feel better.. just had to get if off my chest

    Yeah I spread about 75% of the fines with the dozer, I was spreading and got a little carried away and ripped up about 8' of fabric that was under the screenings with the blade:hammerhead: took me about 20 minutes with a shovel to get it back to were it needed to be. Used the tak from then to finish spreading.

    If you want I can keep posting away with pictures, I only have about another 500 or so that I took of everything I did this summer:dizzy:

    What tire? That's the new round starter log!

    I try to throw them to the side, but everynow and then it seems that one somehow gets in the pile, usually when the sky starts turning black. then it's time to pile some wet brush on top so it don't smoke so bad!
