I plan to try to keep this updated as a small build thread for my kids MX track. Both my kids are yougn but love to be outside, so this year they got a Polaris RZR 170 in the spring. Anyone with 2 kids knows that having one of something is not always fun for the parents...:empathy3: So we bought 2 more small quads for them to ride on.

I created a very intricate track in 5 acres of alfalfa for them to ride. That lasted until aboutthe end of the year when they asked for soemthing new. So I have started to bring in dirt and add small bumps. We purchased good quads so they all have good suspension, but nothing is too crazy right now.:kidw_truck_smiley: The track will increase in difficulty as my time allows and thier skills become greater.

I also plan to make one single tract rather than a maze of connecting ones to make it easier for other people to ride and have less accidents.

I wish I had a good picture now, but my biggest challenge right now is moving material. I need to move 150 yards of dirt and 500 yards of woodchips. So.. I will keep this updated as we progress. I do not have a dump trailer so this is all getting moved between the tractor and gator. It will be a slow build!

You guys are thinking WAY too much here. My kids are young. The tallest table top I will have for next year will be 4 feet. They should not be able to get much air off of it!

I also need to do this slow. If I do it all at once, or fast, the kids will not have something to look forward to. Right now they are all over me to get the next jump in. Its too wet, but I am putting it off for a bit since I need stuff to keep them going in the spring.

I am making this track smack dab in the middle of our next new home site will be, so I cannot mess stuff up too bad. I just need a place for the kids to ride, and dad to get out his 450r.

Sometimes its more of a challenge to so things the hard way:lol:... But a pan scaper does not seem like what I need. All the (old) soil needs to stay where it is at. My new dirt/sand/woodchips are all in a pile right now. They are about 400 feet away from the track.

Now Now guys.


I am having a technical issue.

When leveling the ground witht he back of the bucket (I have a tooth bar on) I get packed dirt up into the loader arms. That seems like it will be bad! Short of welding them closed, what can I do different? Or what am I doing wrong.

I simply use the back of the bucket to take off the high spots and drag it smooth.
