    is it posible to spread 25-30 yards of fill dirt dumped into a pile by a 10 yard dump truck with a 40hp tractor and a back blade?

    Hope you got some time on your hands. Its going to take a while to spread that much.

    Yes it can be done.
    Its not the best way to spread it but it can be done, it also can be done faster with better results with a back blade with down pressure and power tilt and angle.

    yup it can but good luck. i would just get it delivered with gas prices and all that would burn alot of gas/diesel that would take three loads well unless your also a trucking company.
