    I don't want to even think about it, you can't tell from the JD site because they don't even have a "build your own" option for it

    Looks awsome

    Now someone needs to make a pusher for that thing that will allow it to stack

    ^^^ word, that gray machine looks damn sweet. That would look awesome going down some city street to clean lots lol. It would put fear into snow and mother nature hahaha.

    That looks like John Deers answer to the success of the Case IH Quadtrac. There are quite a few Quadtracs being used in my area on construction sites, especially for pulling scrapers.

    I really like the out front visibility the operator has on the John Deer.

    Its being marketed as a dozer, but I wonder what the difference is in its capability compared to a Dozer of similar size and engine HP with conventional tracks.

    I assume conventional tracks get better traction but I could be wrong.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Sf9Ud8KnfA here is a cool video of a quadtrac in a pulling contest with a tank.

    Anything with tracks is cool but that thing is awsome.

    High speed bulldozer, I have never seen where speed and bull dozing was a issue. Around here pushing blasted lime stone would eat up those rubber tracks. They only show it working in dirt. That dozer would have limited use in my books around here

    I don't want to hijack, but this company Mattracks had pictures on the web site

    a few things:

    it costs 250 thousand if i recall correctly
    the point is that it goes 6/18 mph when a regular dozer does like only a few mph
    it can drive over/on pavement to cross a job site without destroying the pavement

    it would be a useless machine for snow removal unless u had a giant pusher and no need to stack the snow.. plus it's huge
    we don't like thinking about replacing a set of tracks on a tracked cat at several grand, now imagine twice as many tracks and each is probably twice as much to replace

    it doesn't come in that gray color is was just for the unveiling and shows

    if you ask me it's the big machine co's (cat/deere/etc) trying to show that they are not building the same 50 year old machines despite all the technology of the last 20 years, but unfortunately all this says to me is that they don't have any designs for better equipment.

    Mattracks are awesome...and they are also awesomely expensive. You're looking at 30k for that tractor kits.
