    What's the right attachment for this job (on my 1025r)?

    Recently we cleared about 2 acres of my property.

    Unfortunately, after we finished we had some of the worst storms ever and rivers of water flowed down the hill making huge ruts. I need to basically smooth everything out again. There are also a bunch of big clumps left from the bulldozer that I need to knock down and smooth out. Should I get a tiller, a box blade, ???? What's the best tool to attach to my 1025r?


    Thanks for any tips!

    Hard to tell in the pictures due to distance. But this sounds like a box blade kind of job to me.

    You can sort of see some of the bulldozer tracks in this pic. It's before the rain came.

    Are you leaving it dirt, or do you want grass to grow there?

    How bad are the washout areas? This can determine if a box blade is warranted IMO.

    Just dirt, rototill it and your done.

    Grass, then box blade and landscape rake.

    Actually I would probably till and then use a rake, but turn the rake around backwards.

    It sort of depends on how bad the areas are that need to be filled in as far as what implement-s would be best to use.

    Pictures of the damaged areas?

    I'll get some pics of the bad areas tomorrow (dark now). I want to put grass down when I'm done.

    What do the box blade and rake do differently?

    I’m a fan of a minimalist approach to this. If you want to keep those trees alive, you don’t want to disturb their roots. You’ve already had a dozer in there, so you’ll want to be careful how much more disturbance you cause.

    A box blade is designed to move material, not that it has to be used that way, you can just smooth things out with it also.

    A landscape rake when used turned around so that the tines are backward simply smooths things out without gathering a bunch of stuff.

    Picture is only to give you an idea of the finish they can leave.

    If the ruts are not deep then a landscape rake or even a land plane will do the job. If the ruts are severe then a box blade or tiller can do the job.

    I would base my decision on how bad the ruts are, how much I want to spend, and how much my 1 series can handle.

    You can also see about maybe renting a Harley Rake or having someone come back and smooth it for you with a skid steer. While a big upfront expense it might be worth considering if you do not have any other intended uses for the implement you are considering.
