A few more details and I'll be discing, blading and lifting, progress is slow but worth the wait.

Oh, a tractor. Reading the title, I thought someone is changing their status in life.😁




Looks good.

So is it actually broken clamshells on your driveway?

Yeah, if done properly, the shells are cleaned and dried to prevent odor, then crushed and packed when installed, driving over them makes them almost like concrete, so every couple of years to keep it level, I just loosen and grade them, then pack them down. Don't reall have to, but it looks fresher if you do.IMG_0148.JPG

Does your hitch have float? If not you may find its very hard on the actuator.

I haven't installed the slotted float bracket yet, but will soon. I can see where it would put stress on the actuator.
