back to the original poster...

stay away from the MTL's they will eat your ass. I liked them, graded nice, rode nice and I pushed snow with them. Had a 257b2 and a 277c. We landscape and do excavating. We were always working on them, idlers, bogies, mtl sprockets, ripping drive lugs off, replacing with bair aftermarket lugs, ripped those off, track are weak(no steel in them)

I could go on and on. If you want a machine that will work get a ctl. all of them will work(i think) all have pluses and minuses. For what its worth I am currently running deere 329's. Big powerful machines and we love them. Just a pain to pull on a bumper trailer behind a single wheel truck!

Good luck
