I'm a backhoe guy. I'd tear it loose with the backhoe. Then trim it smooth with the Bobcat.

That’s what I would do before I spent much effort getting a tiller to work but I think the tiller be more uniform.

The oliver is the 53, 67 years old. Sits years at a time keep the gas tank full to prevent rust, keep the battery on a tender. Leaks hydraulic fluid enough that it never gets bad as I'm always filling it. The bobcat I just bought, it's an early 70's model. I rebuilt the carb, changed hte oil and filter, hydraulic fluid, new battery, and it runs great except the governor isn't working, so that's on the list to be fixed.

I'll have my office on the second floor, metal shop, stuff like that. Storage on the 3rd floor and an elevator between floors. I don't want to haul equipment up one flight of stairs let alone 2. Things like seeders, sprayers, aerators, snowblowers, all that stuff can go up on the 3rd floor and out of the way.

I like imgur, it's easy and there isn't any bs like photobucket. Upload the picture from the phone, bring it up on my computer, click copy on the bbcode, and paste it in. Real easy, no ads or bandwidth throttling or blocked images.

Right, but I like to keep my information backed up globally. I reference it in other forums, and it's more for a backup so I can look back. I use it for non-tractor pictures too, family, computer stuff, pets. I have a hundred different projects going on aside from tractor and yard stuff, so it's nice to have it all in one place.

Yep. I used to do that too. Not anymore. I do my backup here at home.

We just had a slab poured for a new shop/barn and the concrete guys used a mini-excavator and a bobcat to level everything and a sheeps foot roller to pack it down (not having any real rain for the last six months helped). If you have to move the dirt very far, try to scrounge up a dump trailer - they make it so much faster than moving dirt by the bucket full.
