Brian, you are doing a fine job. Lot's of hard work, but you sound like you have the problem identified and a solution in the works. Good job.

What I am thinking is you will most likely be doing a lot of the upkeep on this parking lot. Being able to pack the gravel in after grading could help keep it in place.
I am going to widen mine, just haven't decided whether to go to 46" or 48". I have metal to do it either way.

Kenny, I was sceptical about having a wider blade but after using this one I'm sure it could handle a wider blade at least for the type of work I was doing. In the Ford you have a low range which should give even more pulling power. Being able to cover the rear tire width with a couple of inches to spare would be a nice addition.
