    the big pain with being 60 miles away is you're always at the mercy of others, and when you're 60 miles away you're easily ignored. had a man agree to spray it the last days of July, I was away for most of august, he finally finished spraying it in the last fortnight!!!!

    Ended up spraying a good chunk by hand as he reckoned the ground was too rough for the quad!

    Dozer man called saturday for a looksee and will be back in a month or so. In the meantime I'm fencing off trees that are to be kept and cutting some more that have to go.

    Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

    Now dozer man is giving off an extreme impression of not wanting this job having had it sprayed off.

    back in the spring the first man that came and looked at the job advised me to buy a dozer and do it myself. I laughed at the time but I wish I'd listened to him now.


    If I pushed the mounds and the sod into the drains with a loader (not the 4600 obviously) and got the field disced I wonder would I be as far along

    A good man with a track machine for a few days would surely do a lot?
    After all, it doesnt have to be like a lawn

    Digger man said it was a job for a dozer, getting sick sh*t of the lot of them at this stage :(

    I'd forget about the dozer and find a different digger man, most of them cant be overly busy at this time of year
    Seems like a handy number to me

    A grading bucket and a good operator would surely be the best way of doing it. He could put the soil back , as in sort it a bit.
    As Mike says , it would fill in a few days this time of year when not.much happening.

    What a difference a day makes. We had a talk last night and he just rang now to say he'll be there tomorrow!
