Maybe a dumb question, but as Im not too familiar with the capabilities of some attachments, Im asking anyway.
Ive got about 400' of gravel drive. Its compacted pretty good, and uneven in spots. Ive tried a few things over the last 3 years weve been here, including:
Back dragging with the bucket on the 955, which didnt do too much.
Back dragging with the 54 blade on the 318 which worked a little better, but still not too good.
Made my own land plane pull behind leveler for the 318, which works better than both.
The trouble is, even though my homemade attachments works well at moving gravel around, in some spots it takes it down to a point where it wont remove any more. Its a hard compacted surface almost like concrete, and it doesnt drain well.
In my mind, what I need to do is to tear up all that compacted stuff to loosen it up and get the gravel back "on top" of the other stuff.
A box blade one of the things I wish Id have gotten when I bought the 2025, but thinking on it now, the only other use right now for it would be flattening out my trails, which it would do well I believe.
Anyway, Ive watched several videos on box blades trying to figure it out, but Ive not seen too many bad gravel drives like mine renewed in that way.
I have a couple areas where more stone would be a bad thing, like against the concrete apron around the garage for instance. Adding more will put the gravel above the level of the concrete and thats something I want to avoid.
Does this make sense to anyone? Is a box blade going to help here or would it be a waste of time?
I had thought too that if I can get a good bit of gravel loosened up, I can remove some of the "junk" under it and spread the gravel back out having it sit a bit below the concrete level, and doing that may further help drainage.
