Improving lot
[Return to Topics]

Bought a small lot (192x142) and am trying to shape it to where it will drain.It is relatively flat other than where tractor and bushhog got bogged down many times before I owned it.I plan on hauling some dirt to fill in some of these holes.I have an old farmall 100 and a back blade.That is the only implement I have.The ditch where it will drain is at least a foot lower than the lot.What other implements would I need.I want to keep the cost down.Appreciate any help,answer. Thanks agg

Is that back blade adjustable for degrees up or down? You could cock it up at about 30 degrees, cock it back about 45 degrees and one pass down each side cut a passable ditch. I cant remember if the 100 has adjustable three point arms (or even 3 point) so if blade wont adjust you can lower one arm and do the same thing I would think.
If not you can get a single sweep plow and break open a ditch.
