A quick 15 minute session on the tractor and voila… The driveway is 4ft wider and 60% rougher.
The clearing is slow going.. Mostly due to wanting to save the bigger rocks for a retaining wall/levels due to the elevation drop.. We really had to dig down for some of the larger maple stumps which screws with the overall development but clearing the stumps and cover is the initial idea
.. This big quadruple stump has been wily..sitting on a pile of rocks to make matters interesting. Swearing at it hasn’t seemed to help matters either. We are nearing the 1/2 way point of our pre winter clearing plan.. Really amazing what you can get done in 40 hours with a 6000lb piece of equipment (although 4 of those hours were for removing the backhoe/putting the backhoe back on… Which was a thoroughly unenjoyable experience)!
