    Good advice, the only way to really fix potholes -

    I have done some private drives from time to time and I either use the tracked skid or D5 if it's a long one.

    Every attachment is a compromise, but fabbing "what works" seems to be the key. I do like your solution a lot.

    This new twist on a box blade may spark a few ideas. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EXBBr86zTYU

    The last grading attachment you will ever buy.....I have the HD CTL hydro model with the serrated Edge and wheel kit. My own driveway is over 2000 ft and nothing comes close for a working mans dollar.

    I have a RR blade also. The wheel kit is new since I bought mine. How do you like it?
    Did Bart or Bert (the owner) deliver it to you also. He's a hard working guy!

    We fab'ed up our wheel kit for it...it's a handy addition to the RR....I bought mine second hand at a local auction. It's was Barely used when I bought it. I made a few modifications last season and it works real well. I used it here on my farm grading the driveway and around the outbuilding and for grading an private MX course.

    I been using a 6 ft box blade. I would prefer a motor grader but didn't never get one. I usually do the grading with a bobcat and then when I get it shaped I blade it with a box and if the customer request I add asphalt milling on top. I try to include some pictures image.jpg
