I'm pricing a nice retaining wall and paver gig. A nice winter job for us. There is just a small problem! Where the work is to be done, there is a very steep hill. I know in order to receive feedback from you all that pictures would probably be a big help. But I dont have any. Ok, with wet soil conditions (as the soil is usually wet in MD Nov - March), there is NO WAY a rubber tire skid steer will traverse up the hill. Infact, I'm not even sure of it would make it up the incline in the middle of July with bone dry soil conditions. So what I did is I priced the job with the intent of renting a dedicated track driven loader (CTL) for a period of a month. Then I got to thinking, for what it will cost to rent such a machine, I can buy steel add on tracks for our machine. Thus alliviating the stress of paying rental costs if it rains for a week, etc. I know a few people with skid steers that have the add on steel tracks, and everyone says good things about them. But I dont really know anyone that has used the steel tracks for traversing UP steep embankments. Anyone here have any experience and or knowledge of how they do on steep hills?
