The hardest part about building motocross jumps is GETTING THE DIRT!
I hired a bobcat so that was easy. (Tried using a shovel and that would take forever!). Also I hired the bobcat from a rental centre that gave you Sunday free so I only paid for Saturday.... AND... I did it on a long weekend so I got the Monday free as well!
Back to the dirt...
I was lucky I guess. Next door to my parents place a construction company was excavating for an artificial lake.
So I spoke to the foreman and for a crate of beer (the universal tender) I got three scraper loads of dirt dumped in my dad's paddock!
But if you don't have building works next door there are some other ways to get access to dirt.
