    I don't think this is what you're looking for, but still a good one.

    your not going to get a lot of people clearing snow with trackhoes. They take too long, plus if there is "10 feet of snow" the trackhoe would sink in and be useless. the only time i would imagine ever using a trackhoe to load snow would be to set it on top of a pile in a mall parking lot or stadium and load trucks, but with the risk or tearing up pavement and the cost to operate one its just as easy to run 1 or 2 wheel loaders to get rid of the piles.

    If you can find an excavator sitting on top of a snow bank; it for sure is not going to be a pretty picture.

    Doubt you can find one. Might be easier to ask for an excavator on it's side after it tried to get on top of a snow bank. :)

    Why is there dirt on top of the snow pile?

    Even more scary you made this picture up in 8 minutes?

    i know what pictures he's talking about, I got them in a e-mail a few years back, but dont have them any more. I think that one with the blower, and the excavator sitting on top might be the ones. Wish I still had them.

    Fordistough:

    Trackhoe,excavator,hyhoe are all names you'll hear the machine called,certain regions have certain names for it.Back in the late 60's or earlier when the excavator was basically a crawler crane with a cable operated hoe the name used around these parts was a backhoe and thats why you'll still hear an excavator refered to as a backhoe.
