This is Ben Ingham with Expert Village to talk to you about putting in a gravel road. These are turned upside down right now because I haven't been using them lately, but they can be taken out and put underneath so that this point will be digging into the ground and it will help dig up some very hard compact soil and will throw it into the back of the box blade and will help you loosen up that, some very compact soils. So, I use these to help loosen up that soil the first few times over, before I ever put the gravel down. But, when I'm just trying to smooth something out or get things out of the way I usually get these out of the way because these are very aggressive and dig up the soil, they can get quite a bit of soil out at one time.
