Just looking for some opinions on what people think about wheeled machines with trail-blazers, or similar. At two other companies I worked for, before owning my own business, we never had a CTL. We attached trail-blazers (tracks) over the wheels when we knew it would be muddy. Two guys could install a set in about 30 min. I have ran CTL's before. With the exception of ground pressure per square inch, I don't see a real difference. When the tracks were on a Bobcat 843 or the John Deere skid loader, the machines were virtually unstoppable. The only complaint came from the mechanic. He said that the tracks put a lot of strain on the drive chains and wear them out faster. Why not just purchase a wheeled machine and a set of tracks. Now you have both, a tire machine and a CTL (without the added $12-15,000) Just looking for some opinions for those familiar with both.
