    looks to me you need a dozer....though it would be a fun situation if you popped a track down there haha

    When that engine starts to really lug, from where the camera was, it sounds like an old D-8 grunting away!

    900 hrs and it's only lost a track once when a log got up in it. I keep them tight so that wont happen. If if did I would have just drug it out with the volvo:)

    A dozer would have been nice to push it to me but it would have been ussless on top of the hill where I was dumping it.

    Let me guess, the landscapers will be on the yard in the last pic tomorrow to lay sod?:laugh:

    Dirtman, do you specialize in ponds?

    No doubt the excavator helped, but is he digging a pond with a CTL?

    You obviously aren't too worried about there being solid ground underneath, if we tried that here, our local equipment dealers would be rich.

    more then likely, he's diggin out a silted out pond. Building site that got run off and filled the pond to where it was only a few feet deep.

    Just wonderin, what was the bill for something like that?

    Nice work
