    And you reminded me of Mom & Dad digging the basement for a room addition in '65, with a Farmall A, and horse slip scraper. Approx. 30' wide, and total around 50' long tapered in and out. Did it in 40 hours according to the hour meter he put on the A, for oil change purposes.

    If a person wasn't particular about dragging a scoop, roll over scrapers, or some refer to them as tumblebugs work pretty decent too. But that would be too much for a smaller compact tractor. I've got a 4' & 5' of those. The 4 footer is all the little IH 240 (24 hp) I have wants.

    You are in the perfect location to see just what can be, and has been done with a small scoop of that size. Take notice of the canals in your area, around the lake, and especially if you ever travel Rt. 16 towards Coshocton. Most of that was dug with horses and slip scrapers, contracted to local farmers by the mile. And considering the size of that project, in a relatively short period of time.

    The more stories I read, the more I am convinced that a rear scoop just might be my poor man's front loader for now.

    My rear scoop/dump bucket worked OK, but this hard NC red clay was tough to scoop up. I made some pointed digger teeth that I welded to the lip of my scoop that doubled the amount of clay it could dig out and I easily get a full bucket pulling forward and about a half bucket load reveresed driving into a bank (although that is a good way to bend/break lift arms). If I had the money, I'd rather have a front end loader bobcat, but that is some serious money that I can't afford to spend.

    DJ54,

    Exactly, the canals here, Buckeye Lake, even National Trail, U.S.-40. Have you ever seen any photographs of the horse drawn wagons hauling in gravel for the roadbed? They used a V bottom wagon that opened. I expect they hauled a ton at a time. That would be like us trying to build a road using compact pick-up trucks.

    The tasks I have in mind are nowhere near as large as those. I just need to create a few level places on the south facing slope I live on. The only flat places here have been created. I am nerar Ziontown, so not far away.

    I haven't seen any of the V bottoms wagons. I remember some older neighbors telling of hauling in box type wagons, and bottom boards pulled out one at a time to dump the load.

    One of those rear scoops may not be used all that much, but when it is, it's worth it's weight in gold it seems... You'll be surprised what you can do, just working a few hours when you can on something like that. Just got to stay with it, and not be in a hurry.

    Yep, familiar with Ziontown. A buddy of mine lived on High Point, near Glenford, so I passed through there going to his house. My location still shows Rushville, and I need to change it. Still have the place at R-ville, just waiting for the weather to break, so as to get a lot of "stuff" moved...

    DJ54,

    I have the perfect trailer when you go to move. It has a dropped straight axle, giving a loading height of about 10-12 inches. It is pertfect for appliances and implements. It is small, 4'x5' deck but handy.

    I built my house largely by myself. I decided early not to be in an hurry. I gave myself starting and stopping times. I paid for the materials as I went, no mortgage. There were many days of telling myself just 10 more concrete block, 6 more rafters or one more load of gravel and I could call it a day. So I know about perseverance.

    Actually, I'm trailer poor... I'm using my 3 horse slant gooseneck as a moving van for small stuff, furniture, appliannces, etc. Got an Eager Beaver tri-axle BP for the machinery, and a 20' flatbed for other items. Already stuffed the living quarters horse trailer with items, and is here in the new barn. And will pack the 2 horse straight load to bring a load when the time comes.

    One for every occasion, and is great, except when it comes time to buy tags, LOL...

    And know about doing the way you built your house. I grew up that way, and also remodeled my house there at R-ville using the same ideals. I could buy enough materials every payday to keep me busy for 2 weeks. A great way to build equity, without the interest eating you up.

    Horse trailers are great for moving. It sounds like you have it covered then.

    I used a read scoop to level out some ground in preparation for a machinery shed about 15 years ago. very effective and easy to use. didn't have the money or availability of a loader at that time so it worked great. minimal investment and easy to store and use.

    Have used some thing else here. Have had a 60" version of this Rear-Ender Auto-Dump on my YM2000 for a few years.

    WR-20 & WR-30 Auto-Dump


    Works great for the investment. Have spread and leveled gravel, dug drainage reliefs on field edges, and really works great moving snow.

    Add a hydraulic top link and it becomes a heck of a machine. Steve
