    If you had a model with a trip edge though:rolleyes:
    I've always thought that the tracked skids or compact multi terrain loaders could keep up with a D3 easy. That is a nice versatile blade. When can I demo one in Canada?

    I worked a job and the excavator had a dozer blade on his Deere CTL. Said it would outpush a D3 no problem, and the biggest CTLs can keep up with a D4.

    Still no substitute for a D8 though. They have one at our landfill for a job. That thing is huge.

    you probably could if you had a rubber edge and not steel...
