    Default Mighty Little Bulldozer

    I have some hunting land that needs to be screened off from surrounding hayfield, barn etc. Here is a picture looking from the barn toward the hunting area.


    I decided to build a mound, plant some grass on it, and add some downed tree limbs. For the mound I used my tiller to loosen the soil, and then pushed it into a windrow with my mighty little CK30 bulldozer. I have a crick in my neck from looking backwards all day long.



    I made a couple of passes at it, and have a mound in the making. Will take some motrin and give it another pass.

    Thanks for posting the pics, it is amazing what our tractors can do.
    Just imagine how long it would have taken you with a shovel and wheelbarrow.

    Nice work. A FEL has so many uses.

    From the picture and description I think he used his box blade to push the dirt up in reverse.

    That would be nice for this job. There were many times that I would not look backwards, but would just judge the strain on the tractor and the spinning tires to know when I needed to raise the box blade.

    I've read about folks bending their 3 point linkage from too much pushing or hitting stumps and rocks. You, evidently don't have such a problem....and / or are a good operator. Nice work.

    You gotta mine allot of dirt to find a diamond.

    The tractor and the box blade seem to be fairly evenly matched. Going a medium steady speed the tractor seems not strong enough to over push the blade. The tires spin before the bars bend, or at least that is what I am hoping.

    Over extension of equipment, and even of myself, has always been a fault of mine. I am trying to improve that for myself, and the equipment I use.
