We are looking into the purchase of a compact utility tractor w/ tracks. I've searched and read a lot of posts on this subject already here at lawnsite. Thx again D Felix for the spreadsheet. I'm curious for those that already use them...or have used them in the past... 1) Do you use them for planting trees/shrubs? In other words, do you have the tree forks and auger? Is it really a time/back saver for this. Can you just switch them no problem in the field. You know run over to the planting spots, auger four holes, go switch to the forks, pick up the trees, drop them in the hole, go switch to the bucket, bring mulch over to the newly planted trees? 2) Do you use them for clearing old landscapes? Can you just put a grapple or 4 in 1 bucket on the machine and start carrying old plants out of the yard? FYI, bucket reach is not a big problem for us because we utilize a dump trailer with is fairly low and I've rented the Dingo before w/ just bucket and loaded dump trailer up with soil. 3) Does it aid in building retaining walls? Can the backhoe be attached, dig the footing, place forks on to carry wall material over (say 6X6's NOT a 1T pallet of block), place bucket on and carry 3/4" stone over to wall? Any help/insight would be appreciated.
