Nice, it looks pretty mean too.
It sure would be tough to use as a back scratcher,thats for sure.

I've got something very similar on the front of my rear scraper blade. I can raise or lower the rake in front of the scraper, not a very good pic, but the tabs on the rake bolt into the scraper you can add spacers or not to raise or lower. The spikes will go about a 3 inches lower than the blade, which works good to tear up hard pack dirt/gravel. Raised to about 1 inch or less in front of the scrape,r and it does a great job as a leveler.
Thats a good idea.I'll bet it will drag roots etc: out of the soil pretty good.It's a lot easier then using a hand rake that's for sure.Same thing to help loosen the hard packed what ever to make it easier to blade and level out,simple things like this make things easier to do.Good job.Larry

You guys and your loaders are making me jealous LOL. Looks great Larry and it does look mean like Todd said.
Besides my front loader, I have a "Caddigger" too! Just a very short video clip done about 3yrs ago, ground hard as concrete. Just got it going, and not too slick at operating yet at that time. Bought for $1000 and took $25 in surplus military engine parts to get her going.

That's a very handy piece of equipment isn't it Daniel ?
Paid for itself it's 1st time out! Repaired my son's septic system, laid a new field tile to my septic system, dug up a field drainage tile where roots had stopped it up, and more. Would hate to be without it now!

does it run under its own power? How many wheels does it have, 3? Or do you have to tow it to the site?
It has an old military 4 cylinder opposed engine. 2 wheels, and you tow it. Once there, you switch wheels to the back, put the outriggers on the front & start digging. You move it around with the bucket. Works slick too!
