    Im doing alot of grading and finishing yards for builders where the ground is wet and muddy, been using my L34 kubota with bucket and harly rake does ok but looking for something with more traction that doesnt rut up everything, been spending more time covering my on tracks than finishing

    mud is mud you can try a CTL but even that will leave ruts that require added labor to deal with. its the physics of mud their is not a machine on the planet that can be driven over it dragged on it that will not leave a trace.

    ASV or the small CAT's with ASV tracks (247, 257) will float right over that stuff.

    The cats are very strong machines but they have had a lot of track pro. in the past we use to run two of them but tracks came off all the time depends on who you talk to. The machine was the best out there if they had different tracks just my two cents

    their is not a machine on the planet aside from a hover craft that can be used on a sloppy muddy finnish grade that will not require a hand detailing when done.

    my suggestion was already taken and asv or t 180 should do the trick
