i saw rubber bars that you clamp onto the tracks about 6'' apart so the tracks wont spin in the snow. i guess it works like a paddle to give traction.this was what they were made for so i would have to assume they work? i have been trying and trying to find the info on this but so far i haven't been able to,maybe some one has seen them.

A little disproportionate......Bobcat vs Maple.....

T190 is a life saver.......36" auger, forks.....plug those bad boys in one right after the other.

Little tutorial/visual on planting trees. Don't just dig a hole, throw in a tree and pack the soil like concrete. The Maples are 4"+ and each hole we probably put almost 50 gallons of water in each one. Now, that is more then usual but we are dry, I warranty and they are expensive.

But, put in a lot of water, put in the tree/plant and as you can see, while we fill the with soil the water works up to the surface pushing out the air. Watering the hole provides your best deep watering..........Watering the hole provides your best deep watering.........Watering the hole provides your best deep watering. Then we water on top afterwards to saturate the top of the ball.

Fertilizers, root growth promo's etc all can be added but water = happy. Also protects you from the customers lack of watering. Or in our case, we're another 2 1/2 weeks out on this job before irrigation and homeowners take over.
