    That yellow rig looks like a massive vibratory plow.

    Hey Construct'O looks good. How do you guys like the blade on the CTL? I have heard some people complain that it is not as easy to control as on a dozer.

    I have to say, the JD 332 track machines seem like the cats meow to me. I stopped by our local dealer last week just for a looksie, impressive in a simple way if that makes sense. Wish I could justify a need for one.....:rolleyes:

    Cool pictures.

    Construct'O, I was wondering the same thing. I've only ran a blade attachment on a wheeled skid, and I didn't like it. I've always wanted to try one on my Deere.

    Is that blade a 6 way PAT? The one I used was only a 4 way.

    we had a 6 way blade on our takeuchi...the thing was very difficult to control becuase you not only had to worry about the blade height using the curl but you also had to worry about using the loader arms the raise and lower the blade. Plus on the takuchi you have to press all kinds of buttons to change it from angle to tilt. Another problem we had was never being able to release te hydraulic pressure to get the couplers in. Our dozer is MUCH easier to operate so we sold the blade a few months ago
