2 scoops wet, 4 scoops dry. But it will go places nothing else will go. It's got the undercarriage of a PC300

It only costs $225,000 if you would like to buy one

I don't know exactly what an ADT puts down for PSI, but that tracked dumper is only 6.1 PSI fully loaded.

The only acess I have is this little 20' wide sewer line so there's no room to even try to turn one of those big volvo's around. the track truck has a 360 degree turntable on it which allows you to dump off the sides ect. Also the sewer line is only down about 3' so I really don't what alot of weight crossing it as the ground is already soft.

I used one of those trucks about 2 years ago. The field we were in your feet were up to the ankles in soft stuff, and this thing loaded hardly made a mark in the grass. Awesome piece of equipment.

Well once again we change plans

After moving more mud today we realized that it's just not enough mud to justify bringing in the track truck for a day so I've been elected to move it all with the takkie. Should keep me busy over the holidays


more mud moving today

Had both machines running today





the extended shoreline










Swinging more mud

Let's see...The person who
Pays me,
says it really want be that bad,
Ahh we've move more than that before,

And finally, the one who will not be running the takkie.

I've got a big one yard bucket for it, it'll hold about 1.5 yards heaped up. that's all the machine needs with this wet crap, it'll be doing a wheelie anyways.
