Just a quick project this morning. Last fall before I had purchased the BX I had removed an old flagpole base in the middle of the yard. It left a fairly large deep hole, so I rolled over some big rocks to cover it and prevent anyone from stepping in it. I got it done, but it was a bit of a pain and the rolling the rocks over by hand wasn’t the easiest.

This morning I finally got around to moving the rocks and filling in the hole. The BX made quick work of the task and I barely had to leave the seat.

Getting the BX last fall was one of the best purchases I have made. Makes my property maintenance and projects fun instead of time consuming and back breaking. A larger tractor could do more, but for my 5 acres the BX is about perfect.

Are those steel-toed scandals for working around heavy stone products? :unsure:

Just poking fun...I had a similar post a while back about having the most expensive wheelbarrow I've ever owned......I was thrilled about it! :cool:

I have no idea what the previous owners were doing at my property (bought it a little over a year ago). I have one area that looked like an over grown dirt mound. I started getting in to it and it turned out to be rocks, rocks and more rocks. They had been there long enough that they had sunk into the ground and were covered in weeds. So far I have pulled at least 5-6 bucket fulls out and it just keeps on going. Still trying to figure out the best way to loosen all the dirt/rocks to haul them away.

I know that because I put them there......(with an excavator)..... :oops:

Looks like a stone fence at the end of the driveway to me.

It's pretty common around here for the farmers to make a big pile of any rocks the frost heaves up before they till. Some of those piles get pretty impressive after a few years.

It might be something like that. I am surrounded by farm land and mine was farmed at some point in the past.

What the heck is a wheel barrel?

I had a BX for five years (sold it recently) and it did an amazing amount of work in that time. They are definitely more than a glorified lawn mower as some here describe them. Nice property.

Thanks. The property is coming along.

I have been very happy with my BX. Cleared a bunch of brush and small trees. Was able to bulldoze larger trees I cut down into the burn pile in one piece instead of having to cut then up and haul them in my trailer. Brought in and spread a bunch of rock for the driveway. Drove in fence posts for the garden fence. Tilled the garden and food plot. Leveled rough areas with a box scraper.....the list goes on and on.

For my size property and the projects I have the BX seems to be the perfect size. May take a little longer to do something than with a larger tractor, but it gets it done. It is much more than "Just a toy tractor" as I have been told by some people.
