Hi so I searched the forums and havent found an exact answer for my problem. Short version is I have 2.25 acres that I just built a house on. 100% clay. Rear 1.75 acres slightly slopes towards my house. and has 2 hills, one im paying a guy to remove which is over a gas pipeline, the second I am going to conquer.
Rear of lot has about a 4 foot drop off over about 150 ft so my goal is to push the crown of the hill towards the rear and smooth it all out.
Fun part, I bought a 2018 1025R TLB, depressing part, I am actually stuck at not knowing the right tools or steps to basically remove the crown of the hill. I have a tiller, buddy has a rear blade, not sure best or most efficient way to do this. Crown of hill is about maybe a foot ish high over around 100 feet by about 200 ft wide.
So basically looking for what attachment is needed to help me grade. Then ill figure out how to use it.
Also while im writing a post.
Anyone have tips on best way to clear brush and then smooth out dirt with the TLB? Manually cut/pulled out brush with my truck last year and then mowed and paid a guy to use a harely rake to smooth it all out. Problem is Harely rakes are expensive as H and none locally I could find to use/rent. Looking to do everything myself.
Lastly, anyone have tips on best way to move a newly planted B&B tree? Township planted one right where my future drive will be for my future polebarn...was thinking of getting bucket hooks and a strap to lift out....however any tips are helpful.
Again I am sorry for being such a noob. I have always done things manually before and now that I have an expensive tool I feel kind of lost.
