    they do work, especially on the track machines.

    However, I consider myself to be an above average operator, as I operate dozers, etc... all summer long on large scale jobs.

    The skidsteer is very difficult to use as a dozer because of it's short wheel base. The shorter a dozer the more every little bump tips the machine and dips your blade. This can work in your favor aswell, but it makes it harder to recover from mistakes. I reccomend a box blade instead if you are just doing grading.
