I also filled in some holes by our gate that fill up with water whenever it rains. Again, I would not have done anything about them absent the tractor. So yes, the tractor has been a HUGE help so far.

    Where it is really going to get a workout is when I put in the water lines for the gardens, fruit trees and steer pasture. I have about 1000 yards of water lines to bury. I will be starting on those as soon as I am home for more than 36 hours per week. (My travel schedule is a bitch right now.)

    Which reminds me, I need to thank you. I took your advice when we were talking about tractors (just before I bought it). I was originally planning on getting a 6 foot box grader for it. After talking with you I decided to get a 5 footer instead because you mentioned your 35 HP tractor seemed a little underpowered with the box grader. The 5 footer has worked perfectly so far - no problems at all as long as I remember to put it in low gear and 4WD.
    When a Box Blade Grader is properly filled it can weigh a "shit ton". Sometimes to get more traction, I'll fill up my front bucket but its a 2 edged sword...too much weight and it can bog down the tractor. Some front end weights can solve that, I just choose to use the bucket and not pay for the weights!

    A 6' Box Grader would have been way too much weight to properly do your grading/smoothing etc. Regardless, enjoy the tractor, it is a helluva tool!

    (PS, I'm still negotiating on the Phoenix gig that I told you about so I'll let you know if anything happens!)

    We sure hope you can make that one work. It will be fun to have you and Mrs S around for a while! Maybe you can also convince Cam19 to stop by from time to time. Colorado is only about an 8 hour drive.
