Question for the landscapers out there. Any ideas on efficient/clever ways to build swales using the typical CUT attachments (FEL with toothbar, box blade with rippers, scraper, rototiller, middle buster, sub-soiler)? I have all of these attachements, except the scraper. Also don't have a top n' tilt capability (yet).

Re: Building swales
Use your leveling crank to tilt the box blade sharply to one side, and add extra weight to it if possible. It might take several passes but it will get the job done.
For extra weight, I use 2-foot long pieces of RR track with two grab hooks welded to each so I can hang them on the implement.
