    What is the makeup of the proposed track, how much do you have to dig out to get to hard? Are you planning a contractor to come in clear the top soil dump elsewhere on the farm, buy in hardcore from quarry,level out shape road with slight camber roll it in. At a guess I'd say 25 /M

    Lenth 800m

    Width? 3m?

    Depth of stone 0.2m?


    L x W x D 800 x 3 x 0.2 = 480m3

    Stone at 2ton per m3 = 960ton

    Stone at 10per ton = 9,600

    2 weeks for 13 ton track machine to strip soil, level stone and track in 80 hours at 40 hour = 3200


    Some fag packet figures, adjust them as you see fit.
