Here is an interesting video showing the ASV in the mud along with a Bobcat.

It's funny, the ASV tracks actually do better in the snow than the Bobcat tracks due to the lugs on the track. My next set of tracks will have a pattern similar to the ASV's. It's just that that ASV tracks seem to get torn up faster in the terrain I work on than CTL tracks of any pattern.
Just don't wait long to get the Mclaren TDF style tracks if you are going to play in snow ARP
there is a huge difference in traction compared to the original Bobcat tracks
They might not excel so good in the greasy mud

Pardon the dirtiness, but I was finally able to take a pic of the F450 with the 50D on the trailer. I took this just before I got on the road to go back to MA from CT.

Hey Andrew, how do you haul your equipment?
I mean when you use both the T320 and the 50D you haul them both at the same time?

How do you get them both to the job is what I'm asking

he's got a 12ton trailer, you do the math. that'll answer your question.

and ARP, I dont care if its dirty or not, that looks awesome. Although the trailer looks light gray, which throws the whole black theme off. But who cares!

You're right Alpha, cleaning vehicles this time of year is a losing battle. I powerwashed everything last weekend and within 2 hrs of getting back on the road I was covered in salt again.

Willie- I take 2 trips to get both pieces of equipment to the site as each piece of equipment weights 12-14K lbs each, not including extra attachments. If I wanted to legally haul everything together, I would have to step up to a Class 7 or 8 truck with a really long trailer with air brakes.

Junior- At least the truck color matches the trailer color I think the machine is the cleanest thing in the picture and that has been in the woods for the last month!
