    Thats pretty cool how the tracked machine can climb packed snow. Never seen a tracked machine in action. Ever get it stuck?

    havent got it stuck, but it really hasnt been anywhere that it might, we have had it less than a year.

    haha, ya i noticed that when i watched the video too. theres a bad idler under the left side track that makes alot of noise, the torsion bar pivot points have been greased recently and so have the lift arms, but with over 2000hrs on it, its gonna have a personality lol.

    this spring im putting new idlers/bogeys and rollers, all new pivot bushings for the arms/buckets etc... then tracks. its gonna get a real good inspection.

    .....and a snow bucket!......I picked up a lightly used Bobcat 88in snow bucket for $600 recently. Not something that I NEEDED, but sure has made life a little easier/more profitable. Btw, Thanks for posted the vid Protouch!!

    You beat me to it!! Snow bucket. Hope you like that machine, I've had my eye on something like that. I bet you'll find a ton of uses for it.

    i wasnt planning on using it for snow duties this season, just wanted to knock some piles back today, and i was kinda bored. my route is good with the trucks i have, but im bidding on a lot that i may put a snow blower on the front of this, so the purchases will be pusher, snow bucket (96") and the snow blower.

    its really been good so far, im just taking care of small issues with it along the way. 2020hrs on it, original tracks/undercarriage so in spring im replacing all the idlers/bogeys/rollers and maybe the pivot bushings etc...

    ya and i broke it! the lower radiator hose had been rubbing on the water pump housing and wore a hole through. I smelled coolant and shut it down, checked the bay and found it leaking. Dealer wants $130 for a replacement!:cry:
