Sorry about the misspell. I type to fast and don't edit.
That was very impressive with the blade. I was surprised to see it push that well, most of the time all the track hoes I have ever ran seem like they have a hard time moving their own selfs around with out a blade down and a huge amount of dirt like that. I like the zero turn of that machine also. Looked like a nice size machine.
Give me an 18,000 pound dozer any day over that, I could hit a lot of trees and wires with that boom, plus, the cab is too small and in the wrong spot for true finish grading.
Yeah, I was amazed how much it could push. No doubt a dozer is better but this is nice so you can just take one machine out like if your filling a trench.
Imagine building a road in rough terrain with one of these things. You could looses hard ground then grade. The blade is a 6 way I believe.
I think it is a six way and it does not from what I see look like a cheap blade at all. I would like to try run.
thats a nice machine. it was at conexpo. the blade is definetly heavy duty. the drive motors on that machine are borrowed from one of the larger machines they make....200-300 size....cant remember.
6-way dozer blade, clipped shoes,you can fold the blade tips for transport,larger drive motors.
I have always wondered why they didn't put blades on bigger excavators. May not be as good as a dedicated dozer but a dozer doesn't have some of the abilities an excavator has either.
