Using Ross's Kubota Loader, a modified snowmobile trailer and the Allis-Grader we moved a bunch of sand in today from his sand pile to our yard in a few spots. We were able to dump four buckets on the trailer and he carried one bucket full. We would drive up to the spot and use the bucket to get the load to dump from the trailer. Sure was faster than back and forth with the Kubota or having to unload with a shovel. Figure the trailer was at least a ton or awful close, his bucket lift limit is 800 pounds, some full ones were close. Made the 16 H Briggs work a little but that what they are made for. More pics to follow we aint done yet.

Looks like quite a bit of sit on the trailer there! I would think that you would loose engine power before traction, I bet it worked great though! Looking forward to more pics! Thanks for sharing.

Greg, I bet the A/G didn't even hardly know it was there.

If you had a bigger trailer, you could probably haul the Kubota too. :orangecool:

Thanks for the great pictures Greg. Thats quite an operation you have going there. It wouldn't take long to move a lot of material with that setup.

Hey thanks guys, sorry no extra pics yet. Ross took a few more including the dumping process but has not forwarded them to me yet. That whole pile in the background of the pics above is gone now, what I didnt take he moved over to another pile. Then I ran the grader around and around knocking off the high spots and filling in the low where the pile was and it smoothed out pretty good. Was a good seat time weekend :orangecool: :thumbs: :laughingteeth: :bounce: .

The Rest of the story, pay attention to the picture names, that's my Brother for you :)
Step 1 - Pile dirt on trailer.JPG Step 2 - Place bucket under trailer.JPG Step 3 - Lift bucket.JPG Step 4 - Repeat as necessary.JPG

And some of the no longer there dirt pile

The Pile o Dirt.JPG The Pile o Dirt and a Grader.JPG No dirt pile.JPG

Next step to till the areas and get in some grass seed. And we should have no more of these weird marks next year at the end of the concrete

Greg,
Thanks for the photos.

Glad you got to play in the granulated vegetation growing medium, (my old boss said that dirt was what mechanics get under their fingernails). :smilewink:

Great looking pictures. I really like that trailer, is it a torsion axle? What is the bed dimensions of it?
