I need to get some gravel into my driveway. 10 tons will be plenty, so I'll probably get 20 tons! I can use some around the chicken coop, and for a new walkway.
I can have some tailgated by the truck, but my driveway is shaped so that most of it can not be spread by the truck. I'm sure I'll use a rake, shovel, and wheelbarrow for some of the spreading, but I want to use my garden tractors to save any work I can.
I have a Ford and a Cub Cadet, both with front blades and sleeve hitches. How is a front blade for moving gravel? Should I find or make a box blade? Is there something else I should buy or build?
