    Tweaked Box blade

    It's nice you found out WHAT the problem was and have a solution. While I have great soil, neighbour 2000' away IS the 'terminal moraine' ! LOTS of every sized boulders and stones and clay and gravel and dirt.. Cannot use boxblade, it'd be destroyed...backhoe is the tool to use....
