    Just curious as to why you brought the tractor to spread the dense grade stone when you had a dozer there?:confused:

    it was a 1/2 mile from the shop and was just easier to use that to grade around the road vs the dozer, I used the dozer to knock it down and a couple passes with the box blade makes it look so much better

    what kind of pickup do you have, is it an F-250, and how do you like it? I am just curious cause I am trying to decide on a truck to get and am thinking F-150 or Dodge 1500. Just doing some research right now.

    Is that clearing for a new house I'm guessing

    How come you don't use rubber gaskets when belling up your concrete pipe, I know its just a driveway but it could start sucking sand and dirt. Also why don't you strip the grass between the culvert and highway and dig at least 6-12" along the asphalt, looks like you'll have soft spot or have the rock mounded up at the edge with rock always out in the highway.

    Its on the top of a hill water will never go through the pipe, I dont see the need for a $50.00 box of con seal. I didn't get the utilities checks so I wasn't going to dig and rip up anything. Hard to tell in the pics but the stone is 6" thick there it aint going anywhere. brought in three 20 ton loads of stone and it didn't sink so that suited me fine.

    What model Kubota is that and how useful do you find it in your work? What kind of jobs is it used for the most?
