Saw this on the Spokane Craig's List, but he's from Missoula.

Mini Bulldozer.

Dump truck might be more likely, though I'll let Paul chime in.

Funds are tight now. Our roads could certainly use some help, and a dozer would help - but I think a grate for $100 dragging behind a golf card would probably help about 80%.

We seem to have some spots that have super deep soil, and then we have some spots where we want to put berms/hugelkultur and there is little to no soil. So that makes us think about the value of a dump truck. I am beginning to wonder if we might be able to rent one for a few days.

Hello, saw this thread and thought I could be of help in passing along some open source plans to build a bulldozer. The plans are free with instructional videos. Please share and get involved with creating a more collaborative world. We can make it a better world for everyone. http://opensourceecology.org/

Dump trucks are very useful things. My vote is still for a semi truck with side-dump trailer. Stupid fast way to build hugels on a Sepp scale.

That Open Source Ecology is awesome!
 
permaculture is a more symbiotic relationship with nature so I can be even lazier. Read tiny ad:
