    Where I live now is dry most of the year but if you are in swampy ground you may have better luck with a rearblade than I did.

    A Top-n-Tilt kit would also make the OP's life easier as he learns to build ditches and swales...providing he can afford it.
    Paraphrasing Douglas Adams - So long and thanks for all the bacon.

    I'd have to go into the swale-in' business if I had THAT. I prefer the challenge of clubs and sticks, maybe a piece of safety wire and some duct tape! builds character.

    Looks like you've been doing a lot of work. We're having a metal building built here. Man, it takes a long time to get things done.
