    Brand new & brand new trailer(that is actually 100% paid for...haha)I Love looking @ it, but that is all we can do right now with it. I finally got the chains & binders today....so we're officially ready for it to snow!

    All I can really say about this purchase is: The hard work is really starting to pay off.

    The only track machine that really excel in the snow are the terex/asv line. Two years ago I watched a pt30 with a 8' Meyer on it with wings. it was pushing 6" wet heavy snow like it was nothing. I have never seen a machine that little have such so much traction and pushing power. This one was even the old design.

    Those really are tough machines. I don't know if we have any dealers in Minnesota. But I think they are priced around the same as Bobcat.
