    Default Flat spot for a Tractor Home

    First me on the New MF1523 last fall.

    We have a long paved drive with some dirt piles some distance away from the spot behind the cycle shed that will be the 1523's new home.
    Heading in to a dirt pile: Loading the Golf Car:Two Scoops
    Up the drive we go:Cycle shed on the left:Straight aheadDump Site

    And the easy unload

    With the mass of the dirt being toward the rear it was easier to just lift the front of the Golf Car rather than tilt the bed.

    Still allot of dirt to move!! Better get off the computer.

    Looks like a fun project.
    But, why the thumbnail pics?

    Sorry about that! I just signed up on Flickr and this is my first post with photos. This is the only way I could figure out how to post my photos. It may seem easy for most, but there is a learning curve with the internet as well as with the tractor.

    Took a number of more trips this afternoon and it is filling in nicely. The plan is to line the outside with 6x6 beams and then fill it up. Originally it started out as a circle turn around to ease use of our little camper. Then it seemed like a good idea to have a place to park the 1523 and the camper close to the "man cave". I think most of us understand that now my project got a bit bigger. Good reason to wear my new straw hat though.

    I will improve, Frank!!

    If it will help:
    When replying to a message, go to the "Go Advanced" button under the posting window, and it will take you to where you can "Manage Attachments". Click that and you can brouse your computer for your pics. It is pretty straight forward (but I don't know how to post pics from flicker).

    I like the easy dump cart you have there.

    Thanks for the tips! I went back to my first post and added some photos.

    The front is very light with two buckets of damp clay, but still much faster transporting the dirt this way. Right hand turns are best when sitting on the passenger side.
