i was reminded today why i hate skid loaders so much. After the significant rain we got last night, this morning i had to go and clean out a catch basin with our Takeuchi. No problem, that thing handled the mud, rocks, and silt like it wasn't even there. Later in the day I was sent to an area that i needed to carry around sand with our Case 1840. I spent more time getting myself unstuck with the bucket and trying to get rid of my tire tracks without making new ones then i did carrying sand. At one point the tires sunk so low into the mud i thought i was going to have to go get the F-350 and pull the darn thing out. I guess once you use a tracked machine you'll never go back.
