    A rotary tiller will do all 3 tasks you describe.
    It works great for mixing ammendments into the soil.
    A tiller also makes good ballast for moving soil with your FEL.
    It can also assist digging with the FEL by loosening the soil before you scoop.
    Next to my 3PT forks, the tiller is my most versatile attachment.
    Make sure you get one wide enough to cover your rear tire tracks.
    That's the problem with trouble.
    It always starts out as such fun."
