Here’s some of the after pics from moving pile number 1 . Majority went back into the washed out area/ravine beside the dam. Some went to continued build up of the pond banks . There is a lot more work to do.
Did you look into renting, buying, or hiring a dump truck? I would sure hate to move that much dirt with a front loader on a tractor.

Well I have attempted to have dirt hauled back to the dam via truck in the past , didn’t workout all that well.

So once I got my road around the corner there all patched back up after the stuck dump truck destroyed it . I tried using my truck and dump trailer .

Then I got it stuck . Plus it was a bear to manover back in tight areas.

So after that little fiasco . I rigged up the 4066R to pull the dump trailer . Which that actually works really well . Only issue is at least for now is that pond mud is way to wet and really would not likely dump out of a truck or my trailer in its current state of sticky muck.

Once it dries and I was told that could take months .
I will likely resume using the 4066R and the dump trailer as much as possible .
It does speed up the process quite a bit.

My son and I did brush hogging with the 1025R and a 4’ King Kutter. Rough going with thick brush and rutted up properly all the way, but amazing what a sub compact can do.

Also had to do some hand work.
Pole saw, chain saw, loppers, sprayer were all necessary.
Got stung a couple times from some ground bees. Thank goodness they all didn’t come after us.
We’ll have to back in and see if we can do something with the rutted up areas.

Very nice looking scenery there!
Absolutely! Lowers my blood pressure just looking at those pictures. I recently just added a picture of my tractor pulling my truck out of the mud on the farm as the background to my computer monitors at work. Sure helps put things in perspective.
