There’s nothing quite like the instincts that Spring brings along, when it comes to getting outdoors, starting a garden, or taking on projects around your home. From planting produce to clearing out brush, there’s just something to be said about having things look brand new again.
It’s a good instinct, too…because prepping for spring usually involves a lot of hard work and manual labor. Fortunately, if you have a personal MAGNATRAC tractor, you can get more jobs done in one day than you would in a week with a shovel, hammer, or rake.
Why a Big Piece of Equipment for a Personal Garden?
Whether you have small trees that need to be moved out of the way, or need to level the area where your gardening is taking place, a mini dozer like a MAGNATRAC makes it easy. Plus, you can add on additional attachments to tackle projects like moving soil or relocating rocks and pavers.
One farmer found it easier to use the cultivator on his tractor to pick up sticks than doing it the old fashioned way. Heavy machinery is strong enough to hold up to twigs or branches without any damage.
Clear Out Drainage Ditches
“April showers bring May flowers” (and Mayflowers bring Pilgrims,) but it can also mean erosion around your landscaping and garden if you don’t have a good drainage system. Make sure your current drainage ditches are cleared of debris. They may even need to be re-dredged or mowed down, depending on their size.
Clear Out the Trash
Spring cleaning isn’t just for the indoors. Do you have a “junk” pile back behind the barn? Is the dilapidated chicken tractor being replaced with a nice, new coop that you built? The MAGNATRAC can make it easier to pile everything up and load it onto a trailer, or make a burn pile — it’s your preference! Using a mini dozer just makes the chore more fun during the process. You might even find your family members fighting over the chance to get the job done!
Need to move a couple of big shrubs or trees to a specific area on our property? Don’t want to tear up the front lawn? The bucket on your personal MAGNATRAC is the perfect solution! Transfer your plants from your pickup or trailer straight to your future shady spot without having to worry about throwing your back out. With the right attachment, you can even use your mini dozer to dig the hole for that new live oak going in.
Mend Your Fences
Whether you need to keep animals out or in (or just block your view of the neighbor’s place,) fences are important for farmers and homesteaders. Your MAGNATRAC can help you while you’re building an old fence or putting up a new one.
