    Does anyone use a skid steer with tracks removing snow. I have a Cat 268 B with loegering VTS system. Was wondering how it would work with snow plow or bucket. Thanks for any help.

    Since you have the option of removing the tracks and putting your tires back on I would say do it. The company I work for has 6 Cats with that system on them and when they are calling for snow all of them come in the shop and have the tires put back on. You will make no extra money with the tracks and will shorten the life allot by plowing with them on. Tires plow better then tracks anyways so it is a double whammy. I have a Takeuchi TL130 and it does alright but tires will out plow it every time. Take them off for the winter and put them back on in the spring. Tell me what cost more a set of four tires or a set of two tracks. Wear out the tires on the pavement and save the tracks for the dirt and mud.
