I would like to use my Bobcat to backfill basements. My brother and I build 8-10 houses a year, and have been paying my excavator $80/hr to backfill with a high-lift. I would like to do this my self, even if my bobcat is only worth $40/hr and it takes twice as long, we come out even (actually ahead since cost to run bobcat is less than $40/hr). My bobcat is not very big (S185 turbo w/ 74" bucket) I am assuming it will be big enough since I will just be moving dirt. Do any of you backfill basements, and will I need tracks? Thanks in advance.
