Thanks, and it can cause some trouble, like when it doesnt want to turn... But its fun. And theres progress, the push tubes are welded on, and the blade welded on. It still needs the lift cylinder mounted, and the bracing added to the blade. It took a field trip to my grandfather's to move an aerostar out of the way, since it was back in the woods, and my bronco there has a BAD transmission line leak. Anyway, Gordie was very impressed with it, and was real happy to see his contributions in action. The van had 2 a flat, and that wheel would not turn so it fought motion. Pulling forward i was spinning my tracks, pushing with the blade was the same plus bending the welds on the lower section of the blade (hence the new-found need of the braces). But the tracks have directional grousers, so i chained the front of the dozer to the front of the van and backed it up in low range since high requires more pressure than i have HP to run the pump right now. But it moved the van beautifully, and the whole operation from unloading the dozer to tieing it back down on the trailer to leave took about 45 min, plus 1/2 hr waiting for my dad to come back with the trailer from Home Depot.
