Have a nice weekend!

Spent a couple of hours on the H with the front loader moving gravel yesterday. I spend way too much time on the seat of the lawn mower.

You didn`t mention a time-line so I will say that I spent 8-hours a day, 5-days a week +++/- for 30-years on equipment seats. Still get on one of my yard toys at least once a day.:cheers:

Sound as if you may be in the hunt for having the most or least tractor ass so far johnbron. Its always more fun if you are going to ride, you do it for yourself even if its your yard work....

I'm on my third mow, so I've about 8 hours in. But I have as much time in diagnosing and repairing as mowing this year. I've yet to go over an hour without a stoppage. Tomorrow is supposed to be nice, but I have to go to a wedding an hour and a half away. Old next-door neighbour's girl is marrying a guy from Turkey. Father of the Groom isn't coming because he's scared to fly. This one's going to be a real charm!

Calling for rain so i'll have 12" grass and 24" dandelions by the time I get it done.

Its great to see some body come back w/ seat time.. I live here in sunny Fla. and have been cutting all year, just got 1/2 of rain yesterday and we need more. I know what you mean by the height of the grass, seems weeds do not need rain to get large, hell here they grow from a light dew:furious: :furious:

Thankfully it’s been pretty frequently using my JD 4100. Lots of topsoil, mulch being moved for one project or another....

My unexpected right before work usage came about when I had 10 yard 3/4 Redstone was delivered right in front of my driveway and not on the obvious blue tarp placed on the lawn next to the driveway...The dump was done before I had a chance to go outside and direct the obvious, and before work...needless to say it blocked the driveway and all cars coming and going to work....
Good thing the driver drove away- I would have removed him from the gene pool and did the world a favor :)

It was fun no doubt moving the 10 yards before work...I was a little late but it was worth it!!

I'm trying to figure out how much weight the rocks would be in a single full bucket of 61" - I'm pretty sure its above my JD 4100 capacity FEL stats 865lbs, but I cant be sure....it was lifting them without a struggle, and the bucket was packed each time...I figure rocks weigh more than dirt but maybe not?

You had a blue tarp on the lawn next to the driveway and he still put them in the drive...he must have just butted out a doobie before getting to your place:lmao:

hi Duc,

Reade's says that gravel is about 120 lb per cubic foot, while soil runs 80 to 110.

All i can tell you is that a dump truck with 12 yards of gravel is usually at maximum weight, while the same truck can handle as many as 16 yards of fill.

I'd say the 110 lbs per cubic foot is wet, compacted, with lots of sand.

At 120 lcf, your allowable weight limit is 1/4 Yd actually .27 Yd
