    This machine pulls pretty good with the boom and tracks moving at the same time, this mud is some sticky Sh*t, really sucks the machine down.

    I was starting to worry a little there towards the end when the back of the machine began to dissapear!

    Here's a video just for you

    Go takeuchi GO!!

    You guys have some serious balls to tackle that stuff. I wouldnt touch that mud with an excavator. I would be wayyyyyyy too afraid to get stuck. Good job though.

    Really! My SR80 (now Terex Positrack) is great in the mud but all I can think of is 3 hours of power washing. What do you do with that thing at the end of the day?

    I think you need a highwalker undercarriage under your machines it would probably make life a little easier. A little less drag and you wouldn't be up to the house in mud all the time.

    We had a Volvo 210BFX, good machine, really smooth. Really good track power for climbing around over stumps, up hills etc. There very similar to Deere's for smoothness in hydralics. that one in the picture is beat, look at the hockey stick guarding, and all the side panels have been replaced, and there not thin!
    For Dirtman, you should pitch for a new deere 2154, wow you would not believe the quality and how heavy duty those things are built!
