Good morning everyone. First post regarding my upcoming purchase. I'm looking at a 1025r TLB with 54" deck. I have 4 acres in the laurel highlands of PA. My property is mostly flat, I have about 1 acre cleared where my house sits and 3 acres of wooded property that I plan on building an auto hobby shop with an attached office once I am able to start my own business (Safety Consulting). My one acre has horrible drainage and needs quite a bit of work to bring the property up to grade and remove all low spots.
My question is, what attachments should I be looking for? I was thinking about a box blade for my large scale grading job, but I'm not sure that is the correct one? My front yard is probably 1/3 of an acre and holds water in all of the low spots for days following each rain storm. I'm guessing I'm going to need about 2-3 tri-axle loads of topsoil to fill it all in and make it level. I have experience working around machinery, I grew up and worked for my grandfather doing residential sewer work a few summers during college. We used a backhoe and landscape rake to make everything smooth and level again, so that is in the back of my mind as well.
