Not hard to build. Around my area it would material cost would be high enough you would have to be considering near free labor to come out even.   Don

I bet that would be real hard on your tractors drive train. I remember when I was a kid and my dad worked construction on the big ones. To load it a bulldozer had to get behind and help push it.

Hard to say whether it would work for a small compact tractor.

 

We used one on the Farm I grew up on to build dams.  Surprisingly efficient since you could just keep driving the tractor round and round.

 

We used a Massey 265, and instead of a hydraulic tip cylinder, the bucket was retained in the cutting position by a manually operated trip lever.

 

It wasn't quite as wide as the tires as I recall.  Might have handled between 1 or 1.5 cubic yards.

As long as your only moving topsoil and take shallow cuts you would be ok. Having operated the the real ones (single and twin engines), if you try to take too much at one time, you might as well go back and start all over. The full size ones have features such as locking diffs and a shift inhibit pedal. They usually have a eight speed transmission that works like a automatic.

In generally loose material, there is nothing faster then a scraper. 3-4 inches isn't too bad, as long as you get the right ground speed. I would start out slow and easy to see what your tractor could handle.

Not sure there is enough weight there to cut hard ground. May want to run a digger or disc over it first.

You should look for an Earthcavator. I have one for behind my Simplicity 3310 and it works well for levelling out the driveway after mudseason. There are videoes on youtube of Earthcavators in use. Good Luck, Rick

How many have a 3-point hitch? Sleeve hitch? That will help us help you!
