    I have to level and seed about an acre of property that I have somewhat cleared. It needs to be leveled.Its a little rutted from doing some clearing with a skidsteer. I have an availability of a skidsteer with a straight bucket. Its a big yard and I want to do it the easiest possible way. I know i'll pull my hair out by doing it with just a straightbucket and more than likely not get it leveled. Any suggestions? Harley Rake ? Any kind skidsteer attatchment hopefully I can rent to make tis as painless as possible? Thanks in advance. I have done small yards with a skidsteer and with some "by hand" work but this one, I am in a little bit over my head and I want to get it done!

    Is the area you cleared once wooded? If so the harley rake would work better then a tiller.

    I am being told there an attatchment to the skidsteer named the "Intimidator", easiest and best to use?

    A tractor & rake will get it done with far less compaction than a skid.

    I am not familiar with the "Intimidator". I have only used a tracked Dingo with a Harley Rake and also one with the cultivator.
