Where can I find a Website where people have built attachments for their
This week while on vacation, My wife bought me a new welder (the other one
was stolen), My kids and I built a "Dozer blade" for pushing large tree
limbs and other stuff around the yard. And to knock over large ant mounds.
It doesn't do real Dirt Grading - I tried... =)
LOL... Dozer Blade as a type of device/attachment only on a much smaller
scale. I have a Sears 22 HP - 54" cut - I do 2 acres in 2.0 hrs
If you look in the catalog and find "Snow Blade" it's similar to that. but
the blade is a 6" wide U-Beam cut into 5' section. It was a fun build. It
attaches to the mower like the rest of those front-end attachments do. goes
on easily and comes off easily. And ant mounds in Texas are bigger! <g>
I could take a snap-shot of it and post it on the Web if you'd like to see
Ant mounds should be treated with Amdro or similar as is. Knocking over
the mounds causes them to go elsewhere, but not far.
If safe, no burn ban in place, I did learn a method when I was young on
destroying harvester ant mounds/beds. Dump 2-4 gallons of gasoline on the
mound entrance. Let it soak in as you dump it. Let it soak overnight. Put
another gallon on it the next day. Let it aerate for about 10 minutes.
Light her off. If done correctly, you should hear a "thump" underground.
