Cinder block rut repair

How we have been doing rut repair today

The driveway ruts have been getting extreme enough to cause the bucket hauler to tip over.

It took two of us to tip it back fully loaded with buckets of horse manure.

Luckily it's still Summer break around here which lets us take advantage of some hard working teenage labor to get some cinder blocks placed in the old ruts.

Dude, you could have built a conveyor by now with all the individual buckets you haul!

They use these a lot here in Japan, and apparently Korea too.
