    This is a job we have been doing this week we have moved about 8,000 yds of dirt so far. We are digging a pond and hauling the dirt about 300 yards and spreading it on a hill covering rocks.

    I noticed that the deere ctl always has its lights on. Why do people use lights in the daytime? I could never figure it out

    It looks like you guys are doing a good job. Looks like you had a good bit of mud to play with. :) Love the Deere equipment and Case dozer.

    I guess the lights are on becasue at the end of the day it is getting dark and they forget about them and leave them on the next day and around a busy jobsite it helps the truck drivers to see the machine.

    We love the deere ctl this is our second one. The deere almost pushes as much as our case dozer :weightlifter: . I think we have about 200 hours on this one.

    We cleaned the existing pond out with it only took the amigo about 5 hours.

    It took a long time to clean the tracks out. :hammerhead:

    Look at that muck kind of the same stuff I have been hauling this week the truck I'am hauling with is covered in it. After the job is done going to take the fire hose to her. All that goo running through the rollers on the CTL can't be very good but I hate to see a wheeled skid working in the mud like that.

    Wow -- that mud looks quite tasty. I'm curious; is it possible to stall the engine on a Deere CTL?
