I'll try to make this long story bearable. This summer I decided to
get the driveway paved about the same time I decided to get a great
big playground thing installed in the backyard. After the driveway was
graded, I realized that the great big playground would need about 20
tons of pea gravel around it. We decided to hold off on the paving
until a dump truck had a chance to get to the backyard. Finding 20
tons of pea gravel was no easy task in my small town; it had to be
imported from the big city. When I finally had some delivered, I
wasn't home and it had been raining. The driver thought he might get
stuck in the backyard, so he dumped the gravel (you guessed it) on the
freshly graded driveway. I thought the driveway guy was ready to go,
so I felt a little pressure to move the rocks as quickly as possible.
I rented a (nice and heavy) John Deere skid loader to move the rocks.
Being still wet, of course, I made a huge mess in my backyard. The
wheels of the skid loader made big tracks and trenches all over the
I think the driveway guy can fix whatever I messed up on the driveway.
If I could fix the mess I made in the yard, I'd be satisfied and get
on with life. It looks like I need a box scraper to level out the
tracks. Here's the question: I have a 15hp (near Deere) Sabre lawn
tractor. Looking around on the web, I see a few small box scrapers
(e.g., Brinly) that (reportedly) will work with such a small machine.
Will these actually work, or what should I expect to pay someone to
come out and do it for me with real equipment (roughly 1/4 acre).
