Great work Cowboy!

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

Wow Cowboy. Looks great. I know exactly how you feel, it takes a lot of patients and re-doing to get everything right, but when it's done, it feels great. Don't worry, it'll turn green.

:D Thanks Guys :!:

Ron I am not done yet. I just pulled it around back. I have to get the cross braces on it yet and bolt the floor in.

Toolman yep the blade got it that smooth :!: I disked it to loosen it up then graded it. I should have plowed it first but their is a propane line in there somewhere and I did not want to get into it. It will not cut through grass or hard packed clay you have to plow or disk it first.

Bob I haven't seen red grass before where do you get it :wink: :?: I got the roller from TSC thursday. Its 24"x 48" it would have been nice to find one a foot wider my tires are one notch out and it doen not quite cover the rear wheels.

Hey Billy. What a great job. I think you should leave it that way and just blend/match your grass mowing lines along with those dirt lines :shock: and you'll have a picture perfect conversation piece. I can see your talent once again from your knowledge of heavy equipment. Again, Great job, Rick

Billy i was glad to see you compacteds it with the roller. 18 inches isn't a whole lot of fill but if not compacted can make you wish you had after the first winter. You are an artist with a blad.

we use the rollers from TSC at work also. However always change the tongue out for a longer one. It just bolts in and you get a longer piece of sq tube and drill and bolt it in. seems to make it a lot easier to work with

Billy,
Great looking yard!!! Super job. Looks like you're planning ahead for some more seat time with the mower :D If you want you can come down and do my back yard , it could use a once over :!: and by the way where did you go to get that picture :?: Did you climb a tree or what :?:
