    How many bags can you get in there? I’m thinking about getting one, they’re like $600 for just the bucket I was thinking about making one myself

    Hasn’t showed up yet! Eterra drum style on their auger system. I didn’t have an auger for the dw so it’s a multitool

    I would stay away from those attachments. Skid loaders are strong lifting up. If you use down pressure the pins at the bottom will start to damage the plate or the pins. If one uses a ripper tooth, it should down and forward. This way lip at the top of the connection is doing the work.

    With the ripper and thumb you are using hydraulic pressure to sheer through the roots . Wear on pins or plates is just part of the deal when owning equipment IMO. I don’t intentionally try to break my equipment but I’m not scared to use it either . If I break something I fix it and reinforce it if needed it’s just part of the deal as I get my monies worth out of them.

    My vote is for the eterra backhoe. I would be lost without mine.

    Get the 12” bucket and thumb.

    I tear out with it. Dig footers and trenches. It’s the best.

    also a land plane. But reinforce the welds with extra metal straps. I’ve broke mine about a dozen times. It’s way better than a bucket for grading.

    I also do about a dozen fences a year so I have the eterra auger. No complaints.

    rent a Harley rake. Unless ur constantly doing sod installs. A land plane is fine for seed prep
