After I dug out the hill with the excavator, it was not very smooth; it had lots of dips and clumps, and track marks.

 

Here are the before pictures.

I only spent 30 minutes doing it, so it did not take very long. I also did not have to do any hand work.

Until I put crushed shale over it, and move the portable garage there it will make a nice parking spot for my GTs.

Very nice work! I'm jealous that you have actual dirt to work in. I still have mud! That was some good seat time.

Looks like you have been busy with the excavator and your rake. Looks good!

You say you are going to put your "portable garage" there?

Ryan, I have a long lane to maintain so I appreciate all the work it took to get it smooth. You did a great job. Thanks for the pics. Oh, and BTW, that's a great looking tractor as well.

That looks great, Ryan! Glad it is dry enough for you to get it smoothed up!

Kenny, thats a nice little power king! when did you pick that up? Does that rake just pull behind with a trailer hitch? I got one from a friend who moved and did not want to take it with him. Its a small one for a GT that hooks up with a pin through the tractors hitch. I have not tried it yet but as soon as the mud goes, I got lots of work for it.

Thanks a lot Ryan!!! I have been looking at those rakes,, reading reviews , and debating whether it would do some jobs I had planned.
You just may have cost me some money? You did a great job.

For those asking about the attachment system, it is just a standard catagory 0 three point hitch. My Dad bought the rake not long after he got the tractor, and even though it was made for a cat 0 hitch something did not fit right; it was to long ago for me to remember what. Anyway, less than an hour after he bought it he was already cutting it up to make it fit.

I also took this picture while I had the rake on; I also made it my avatar. :D

Ryan, my bad. I was not thinking (never do) when I posted yesterday. I was looking at your pics and your setup but addressed it to Kenny. It was meant for you. Sorry about that. Nice set up though!

You sure did a really nice job there Ryan.  Nice photographs too.  I like the new avatar picture best.
