In the gardens today with the homemade loader, have to be levelled, right. So, I brought in the heavy equipment for that job. The MF 14 and dozer blade did a great job.

Love color of the soil!  Mostly clay and sand around here.  In Sudbury... all rocks.  Nice tractor Noel, thank you for sharing.

Looks like good job, BUT, how come I can't do crap with a blade on any tractor I've tried to??? Float blade digs too much, just moves dirt off what it is supposed to be on.  The slight lift works some, but soon as tractor goes up or down in dips or hills, blade does too, so dirt looks same up/down wavy.  Backing does some better, but not really way I want.  If hydraulic lift and can play all day with lever, up/down/up/down as riding, but is more pain to watch for all that than worth. Usually just go get shovels and garden rake and push shove around to finish. What's the secret??? :wallbanging:

I have a manual lift on my tractor and it can be a real pain holding the button to keep it from locking as I push dirt but I usually get a good finish.

I know what your saying glgrumpy, it’s not easy. I went ahead slow and did the up/down thing with the blade, then back dragged.
