I had gravel delivered over the weekend to spruce up my driveway a bit. We had the long drive laid back in '92 when we built the house(crushed sandstone)& it has held up well, but the years take their toll. I've gotten by with spot repairs over the last 10 years. This time we decided to overlay it with all new rock.
I was looking forward to using the boxblade behind the 860 to do all the heavy lifting & then cleanup with the angle blade on the 8N. All plans went out the window when I was backing the 860 up to the boxblade. The clutch pedal just dropped to the footboard & the tractor tried to climb backward over the implement. Lucky for me the blade was up against a tree & the 860's tires started trenching rather than climbing. I shut it down with the key, then went to change my drawers.
The 8N answered the call of duty & did all the moving, spreading, & grading all by itself. The 860 is now under the carport waiting to be split.
