Here's some videos of me pulling up gravel in the driveway.

Good job, congrats!

BTW, I have heard it said on other forums that when back-dragging, don't use the cutting edge because that is a very long lever pushing on the bucket cylinders, instead set the bucket down almost flat and use the back corner of the bucket.
