    This may be a stupid question....Can a tracked skid steer drive on top of the snow while piling....As in drive up and push the pile higher? Around here, the city and another contractor use dozers at there dump sites to pile the snow higher than a loader can push it up.

    It can't be too soft/fluffy. But yes you can.

    yes you can, a few years ago I took a t-250 bobcat down a tree belt with 6 foot deep drifts and I never broke through once. Yeah thats pretty sweet when they bring out the dozers to pile higher!
