Put the B2620 TLB to its first concentrated bit of hard work. I needed about a qtr mile of.forest road hacked in to access a remote field so I was not forced to drive off the property, around the roads to the other side and then in thru a gate

It is on a slight sidehill. Steeper portions I used the backhoe and FEL and then for the rest- just the FEL and the box blade.

We can get it at any of the farm and feed stores.
It's a mix of fast growing native grasses and clover that cut down on erosion.
Some places call it contractors mix.

Plan to toss out some seed this weekend when I am fully done pushing/pulling around dirt.

Two lessons learned... I wanted a narrow lane thru the woods for my B2620 and RTV400. I cut the "narrow" lane too narrow for a tractor with FEL and BB. I needed to chainsaw trees 1.5x the track width or more. No biggie as this had been logged 20 years ago and it was only poplars at less than 10in diameter. And secondly... the box blade works great for this application along with the Piranha toothbar on the FEL. Other than roots and rocks being obstacles for the BB, I will next time try some weight on the BB to get it to dig in more

cameras tend to downplay slopes, and that looks like a lot of slope! that must have been a lot of work to chip away at, it came out great!
