    Moving wet clay?

    Building a house and we need a lot of fill dirt (4000 yards plus ).Just wondering if my 2032 is up to doing some of the spreading of the clay they will be dropping off. I'm not planning on using it to do all the work but some. I have a box blade and was wondering if anyone as had any luck with moving clay?

    It will handle it but will certainly take a while. I would look for someone with a trac loader to pay them to come spread it. It will be quicker.

    Agree, hire the initial spreading. You can put the finishing touches on it.

    Or he can spend maybe a week using his tractor a few hours a day say 30- 50 hrs total and maybe $15-20 worth of diesel.

    Seems like a lot of good seat time to me and money left over for some vacation time.

    A 400 load pad is HUGE. Like two days with a dozer and a bunch of passes being rolled. This would not be a feasible option if your having dump trucks coming. Hate to use the word impossible, but that's exactly what it would be if you tried to keep up with the loads. If it was 4 loads that's easy but 400 is extremely large. I can't believe the slope your trying to build on. Might be worth looking into adding a basement or something.

    My neighbor who's new house are in a few of the pics I have posted just completed the grading on his lot with more than 300 truck loads of topsoil brought in. It happened over the course of a week and they ran 2 Track Skidsteers every day for a week to level out the lot. It will certainly take a lot of time and planning to complete with your tractor which is why I would and pay someone else to come in and do it.

    dirt work?

    I have to agree that this time is for a bigger machine to level the bulk of the material out. several years ago the state widened out our little road by my aunt's house. she gave me the dirt for fixing my bottom land. I had 3 state tandems dumping at my place for roughly 2 wks, now they didn't haul every day , but I was proud of my little deere for making a dumping ramp for them tandems to dump on. but when they was done hauling I rented a dozer from my neighbor And finished Click image for larger version.

    4000 yards is a lot of freaking clay. I'd go with a dozer.

    After reading the amount of dirt needed will have to agree with the others.
