    Reclaiming a Creek Bank

    Our creek has been under assault by storm rains over the past few years with creek banks giving up 5-20 ft of turf per storm. Contributing to this washout (IMO) was using weed killer on the bank to save time weedeating.

    Back in 2012 I had my son with his young back, shovel and a mattock straighten the creek by redirecting the flow by straightening it and then setting 24 cinder blocks as a wall while we backfilled the washed out area with all forms of organic matter...

    Without a tractor with a backhoe any true attempt to solve the issue was adhoc and backbreaking.

    Enter JD



    some of grown up bank





    From the operator station


    after first hour or so


    during first all out day of reclaiming the bank.



    One thing the 1025r backhoe lacks is reach. That means I had to rebuild and secure the near bank and take risks to get the bucket to the far side





    More to come

    cant lower it.. never have taken it off...
    I figure if I cant lower the deck lower than 7 on the scale how am I to take it off...I'll probably call the dealer and have them redo it after the grass stops growing...

    As I was saying the length of the boom of the 260 is a bit short for my creek.
    I had to get to close, reallll close to the edge..


    So that means I had to build the bank and back the tractor close as possible to the edge









    Building up the bank






    before


    during

    I think what Kenny was trying to point out is that it's fairly easy to damage a $3000+ auto-connect, mid mount mower and attaching parts when using the rig for backhoe work in a very rough area. The rig looks nearly new as well. The few minutes it takes to drop the deck is time well spent!

    We're all here to help and offer assistance. Kenny's comments were spot on and the OP may not have considered the consequences.
