Forgot to mention my thumb won't hardly work with that new 12" bucket I posted before.  The tines hang past the  teeth about 6". Lol...didn't realize there was that much difference between compact buckets or I would've looked for something more compatible.

Mine is done. Weld on are about $500, but I need to measure the bucket first.

Dang, a once over and an oil change is costing almost $800. Hope they topped off the fluids at least.

County did have free contour maps for both 30ft and 10ft, but the 10ft stops 2 parcels west of my parcel. 30ft (10mt really) is not bad, better than the 100 from USGS.

Here is a pic from the n/e corner. I drove up to about 100ft from where I want to build (front of truck. You can see the end of the road too (south)

Here is a sorta 3d pic. Plotting out the road, pad and well area. The yellow dash is where I was parked in the above pic.

Spent over 2k at the tractor store today, but got a HD box blade. 3/8th wall, boxed 3 point pins and sacrificial ripper teeth.

Hydro oil is $103/5gal for the good stuff and $55 for the OK stuff (Kubota=Valvoline), need 15gal. 3 hydro filters, $200.

Service was another $800, that just included fuel filter, oil change and grease. SUpposed to fix the horn too (button missing) but not sure if it works yet :tongue:

That is really nice!

So, JR, I wish you only the very best and hope that box works, but behind 45 hp I keep thinking of big anchor on a row boat.

Again, I don't know western soils, so it may be fine and it would work on a finished surface...maybe.

But I have banged up my 72" box blade and will need one someday in the not too distant future. Land Pride is one of my go-to brands, so I may be a player when/if you down size. And if you do, I'd really be thinking 48" to maybe a 60". 45HP in the tractor world isn't all that much for construction work.

and I say all that with the kindest and best intentions!!!
