 New Holland TC24D - best attachments for my job

Hi all. I have posted elsewhere on TP about my indecision on which machine to go with, and I finally picked one. Coming next week...

A shiny new New Holland TC24D with 12LA loader and 756C backhoe!

Deciding factor: I wanted it! What the hell. Life's too short. Dealer gave me what I think is a good price ($19,700 TLB), and now I just need to decide which implements I need for what I am up to. Here's the story...

I need to clean up a 1 acre cleared area by rocking/sticking/raking, moving and spreading maybe 100 yards of topsoil (some on 5' high berms that are narrow and steep), prepping the turf for lawn seed by raking/dragging, spreading and dressing about 50 yards of 5/8"- gravel, moving and spreading about 20 yards of sand in the base of a pond (before the liner is applied), picking up/dragging rocks and cedar stump snags that were unearthed (placing them next to or on the berms or in corners of the yard), maybe digging about 30 fence post holes (that's a maybe, but I think so...), digging up a few small (8"-10" diameter) stumps, moving some ice storm damage into a burn pile (limbs and small stumps), tending the burn pile (small, maybe 8x8x6), a couple of power/water trenches (200' - 300' total), digging holes for nursery-bought trees, and moving maybe 20 yards of ornamental rock around to little islands in the lawn.

Obviously, if I want to dig fence post holes, I need an auger. Aside from that, I am not 100% sure what the best things to get would be. I have in mind a 5" Woods rear blade (I have worked with one before on an old Ford 8N) and a 4" Woods box blade. I originally thought I should get the rear blade and a landscape rake, but I have since heard that the landscape rake will not do a good job getting the sticks and small rocks that are buried a couple of inches underground (it would just clog up or not get them at all or break) and that they are really intended for loose stuff like sand.

I am also thinking about getting teeth for the bucket.

It would be great to get some input on what would be the right or the wrong implements to buy for my tasks at hand, and what brands or models or manufacturers might come highly recommended. Thanks everybody.

Bobby

 New Holland TC24D - best attachments for my job

Sounds like it's going to be a real busy tractor for awhile and that's good. Seat time is sure a lot better than tube time.

If I were doing it it'd be mostly with a box scraper but then that's what I have. If I were doing it over again I might spend the bucks and get a very good blade with all the adjusts, end-plates and a scarifier bar. Then it'd do all of what a blade does well plus what a box does well.

The description sounds like cutting and moving a lot of material around as well as moving and spreading new material. That's work a box does well. I sort of surprised myself because I picked up and spread the last 15 yards of pit run almost entirely with a box and saved the loader for compacting work. If there's more serious contouring or ditching work then a blade is better.

Neither a box nor blade is going to clean very well. I have an uncivilized attitude that the grass has to survive what I give it so cleaning isn't much on an issue--guess that's why our lawns have a strong resemblance to meadow. I wonder if a drag might do an acceptable job of cleaning. Just guessing here but chain link fencing wrapped around a length of timber might pick up small stones and sticks. I suppose a drag could be picked up to windrow junk with something like a gin-pole. May not work too well but at least it'd be inexpensive.
