    I will be installing a 500sq. ft. patio in a few weeks. Already in place is all the necessary 3/4 inch gravel base, the problem is its to high up on the house, so I have to remove all the gravel and excavate approximately 2 to 3 inches of soil and then replace the gravel base. My question is will a compact skidsteer such as the vermeer with the tracks be able to remove the necessary gravel and soil? I cant fit a full size skid in the backyard. Please give me some advice or anwsers to this. Thanks.
