Well, I bought a new piece of equipment to close the gaps in-between my oil field jobs. I have connections for snow removal and also for some landscaping in the summer months. I hope it all works out. If not, it just needs to make enough to pay for itself and I have a versatile yard machine. I might buy an auger and drill pilings...we'll see. This is the 101" snow bucket. The dirt buckets are 73".

Believe it or not, the track machines suck for pushing snow. They have too much area and don't get traction. A guy I know just replaced his tracks and it cost him 8 grand. They are rubber and wear out. He spent way too much time cleaning the idlers too.

The kids already have a track but I'll definitely be re-working it.

i wanna be just like you when i grow up camo :D well at least want some land and a house to raise my kids in. guess if the navy would leave me in one spot for more than 3 years it'd be a little easier to do? but seriously, i'm jealous. a little land, a house and a skid steer are deffinately on my dream sheet. now all i have to do is figure out how to make uncle sam pay me more maney, so i can get them. :lol: :lol: :crybaby:

probably got stuck in a puddle again.


nice machine camo. But does that thing have enough counterweight in it to even lift a full bucket of dirt in the 73"? Something I've always hated about that size tractor. Your ride usually ends up like this: :nod:

Best of luck in the new business venture, tell us more about it, I love tractors. :cool:

:lol: The truck was dirty because it was -45 C with the wind that last few days. I hate frozen doors and tailgates. :crybaby:

It's a CASE 445.

I also had to buy a new trailer. :\ It's too heavy for my 16'. I bought a 20' deck over bumper pull with 7000lb axles. It also has the swing down equipment ramps and 16" 10 ply tires.

I have two of the ASV 100hp. machines with the kevlar tracks & they do blow chunks if you get them full of mud to the toon of 5 to 6 hrs to clean them out. they work great in sand,dirt, mud, hard pack we only get a light dusting of snow in Ga.
