Question, though....we have a 4 in 1 bucket and I'll open it up and use the rear part of bucket similar to a dozer blade. I'm not trying to move mountains, by any means and our soil is very sandy...I'm mainly pushing along debris from the last logging episode. Is that bad?
Guess I should have kept reading...seems I'm not the only one... :)
I won't recommend any of these practices (caveat: my loader manual also shows the digging procedure as others have written about) and I definitely wouldn't allow anyone using my tractor to do them (I lent out my old 670 once...watched a friend of mine really abuse it for about 2 minutes...then I chased him off the tractor).
When one owns the tractor, and knows he'll have to pay for any damages, he'll think twice before doing anything excessive.
My opinion, anyway...
My father and I split the tractor together and he seems to be the one that wants to push it a little harder than I do....that might be because he has money, though :/
I haven't violated any of these rules for at least 2 weeks. Been too busy working on the sheep's foot & roller.
But look out next week, am pretty sure that I can break almost every rule.:laughing:
I'm guilty I put the beer in first!
