 toothbar on 7510

I plan on adding a 12'x32' runout shelter to an existing barn that will have three horses in it. It has been suggested that I strip 12"-18" of soil,and add gravel and stone dust to help keep the area from becoming a sloppy mess. I know nothing about horses -- I'm just the husband/son-in-law/builder.

Do people think I can do this with my 7510? What about adding a toothbar -- will this make a big difference? What does a toothbar cost, can I put one on this FEL, and where do I get one? I will be building a house on the property later in the summer -- the more work I can do myself, the better, so there might be more use for a toothbar, maybe? Time I have, and I prefer to spend money on implements and do things myself if possible.

Any help/thoughts would be appreciated.

A loader is not really made for digging, but if you insist a toothbar will help a lot. Berlon may have a toothbar for your bucket (see link). I don't know anything about Berlon other than I bookmarked the site awhile back.

Do you have a box scraper? I'd think the best way to do the excavation with your machine would be with a box scraper.

My best friend dug a basement under his trailer home!! (with out moving the house trailer!) with his new holland skid steer. I can tell you first hand that he really beat the crap out of it with that project considering our ground in rock and clay for the most part. He wound up trading it in and figures not to abuse his equipment too often again like that. I dont know about you but if any serious excavating is to be done I would think about renting and save your rig from the stresses you may impose on it for that one job. If your soil is light and sandy have at it.

Thanks for the input. I don't know what the digging is like. If it's clay (and there are veins of it on the property) I guess I'll hire an excavator. A box scraper might be a better idea. My thought is to scrape the soil off an inch or two at a time, not to dig in the true sense of the word. Because there will be an excavator on the property in a month or six weeks to put in a gravel driveway, I'm not concerned about making a big mess; it can be cleaned up later. Likewise, I can leave the soil in a pile next to the barn and "lose it" in the regrading of the property after the house is built.
