    How are those tracks working for you? I just ordered a sat for my s185 bobcat. Do a lot of bush hogging with mine and hope they will allow me to get more wet areas without getting stuck

    The 5240 is still new to us Only using for rough grade Use the 3825 for final grading.
    The one photo with dirt pile was a Lawn we fix a water problem. Put a swell around the house and the 5240 work good never lost traction but few times needed more power

    I hauled 5 dump trailer loads out that lawn to get it drain right and the 5240 made it simple work
    I graded one lawn without the tracks and I notice then that 5240 is heavy but with the tracks on don't notice much rutting as I rough grade this lawn

    With new cutting edge on made the grading easier I could see my edge better

    So far I like them I haven't got it stuck with the tracks on increase my ground clearance

    But you will see with tracks on you will want more HP
