Here's a bit of background. I have ran large frame Bobcats (863's, s250, 300's) for over 10 years. I have had some with steel tracks and some without. Recently I stopped running metal tracks because I was spending a lot of time fixing disturbed ground and couldn't traverse paved surfaces. I have always run solid hulk tires (at least since they were available) and have had success racking up the hours on them thus justifying the purchase price. Recently thought hard about switching to a CTL to get in more work days when it is wet or I need to work on steeper locations. I mostly do brush mowing, some tree shearing, and other tree related jobs. Occasional road work and digging helps round me out but we mostly do tree and lot clearing. Like I said, i get many hours out of my Hulks so I guess I am a cautious driver even though most of the area I work in is limestone rocks, cedar stumps, and some clay or sand. Does anyone have good feedback on how CTL's will hold up with this type of work and in rockier terrain? Any experience working with brush mowers and around stumps? Thanks for the feedback!
