Is a 2720 upto the task of repairing potholes in a gravel road? From what I've read I need to dig out(rip) around the potholes, fill, grade, pack and than lay new gravel and grade. Sound right? I have at my disposal a rear blade, box blade and landscape grader. Plus the 2720 with with loader and a large/heavy 8ft roller for compacting.
Problem is anytime I've tried to use the rippers on the 2720 the tractor just spins out and my driveway is pretty hard. I have quite a few potholes and not much gravel. I've packed the potholes with gravel using the roller and it lasted most of the summer. Should I rip the whole driveway(1/2mile) or just rip the potholes individually? Not much washboard but I think the crown is gone.
I've never had much success with the rippers on the box blade, is it me or the tractor?
