Got Dirt? New track

Recommended Posts

I got permission to build a mx track behind my house in my neighbors cow field. The only problem is he doesn't want me digging big holes everywhere. So where can I get lots of dirt the cheapest. The track isn't real big just big jumps. Its built on a 100 X 100 yard area. Also hes letting me use his skid steer and cat free of charge if I supply gas.

Get empty oil drums, or old cars, or something else like that to use for your jumps. Then just bury them as needed. That will save a lot of dirt.

Lots of places are always looking for a place to dump dirt. Just be sure it's clean fill dirt, and watch your local classifieds. Holes suck! Downed riders you can't see, tractor falling in, ars holes throwing junk in the holes for you to crash on, rain filling them up, etc.

it does work and you dont have to dig big holes that fill with water

im talking about skimming the ground to give elev to the track

not a big 10' deep hile for you to fall into

The pool ideas good, but i live in the middle of nowhere. If I dig holes in between the jumps, wouldn't that cause a dangerous situation if I was to case a double.
