Tracked dumpers

Looking for input pros/cons to tracked dumper. Not talking about the big ones looking more at the smaller ones that can carry 3-5 tons. I have a job coming up that is far away from pavement and involves digging slop and putting rip rap in around a pond and doesn't want a lot of turf damage (Main reason why it is being done in the winter).
Thought a small tracked dumper would work nice but no one around rents one. I am just going to use a skid steer, but using a grading bucket and dumping into a skid bucket isnt the easiest in the world. So it got me thinking about other options like a tracked dumper.
Thought about a dumping hopper for the skid like BC Ron had, but saw how he bent it the one time.

so any thoughts?
