Not really you still have to pull that machine out with the boom as it will not move without doing so. those rubber tracks may actually hold a little better than the steel as they don't fill with mud "as" bad.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bQPo67exbrc



look Junior... I caught dinner in the swamp today



Then I cleared all the fallen trees and dug drain ditches to drain the land so it can be replanted later





So here is my little pond clearing project



had to move the deer stand of course



More to come tomorrow, Big Ron wants me to post a video of me singing Jamey Johnson: In color so we shall see how that goes. I'm pretty good at it btw

Thanks minimax, I'll look into them


Who would have thought that the dirtman himself could try out for American idol




If I get feeling good enough tomorrow, you may hear the entire song

We all know that everyone sings while they work... don't lie!
