    Me, too! [img]/w3tcompact/icons/shocked.gif[/img][img]/w3tcompact/icons/eyes.gif[/img] I think mine was probably shipped yesterday or today and am like a kid as Christmas nears. I'm sure by the end of the week I'll be leaping at the phone every time it rings. [img]/w3tcompact/icons/wink.gif[/img][img]/w3tcompact/icons/smile.gif[/img][img]/w3tcompact/icons/grin.gif[/img]

    That is how I plan on doing it but I didn't know how much spreading I would have to do after the gravel is dumped. I guess I will find that out when the time comes. It sounds like a job that can be handled by my FEL and that is good. I appreciate the input.

    L3710 Woods 1016 FEL, box blade, and a huge wish list!

    Default Box Scraper

    I guess it depends on the terrain. If I had a mostly soil, I can see where the tiller would be handy. On my rocky terrain a box blade is best. My 1000' gravel driveway was done with box blade. Would have taken forever with just the FEL. One caveat; I highly and strongly recommend the top n tilt. It makes all the difference in the world. And it's true, there is a learning curve for the blades as well. The last 20' of the driveway look great!
