Handy Hint: March 10, 2015

Level driveways and cow yards

wooden pallets turned into dirt levelersI was looking for something to level my driveways around the yard. Instead of buying a spendy big scraper, I took two pallets that were just laying around and attached them together. I made a hitch out of some rope and added tires on top of the pallets for extra weight. Now I use my utility vehicle or small tractor to pull it across my driveways for easy pot hole repair.
I have also used it in my cow pens after a rain to level the ground so cows don't hurt their hooves. This is especially helpful before it freezes over full of bumps and holes.
