 choosing a tractor

Heloo from AlaskaI have posted here before. I have an excavation and landscaping service for remote islands in Southeast Alaska. I use a landing Craft and mini excavator I am looking at purchasing a compact tractor to help move building materials up the beach, load the landing craft with fork lifts, drill post holes for cement foundation tubes, move beach gravel to spread on trails, move snow from my lot in winter, etc. Any knowledge I can gain from this board will be very helpful, I have not used a tractor before we have depended on Bobcats but they tend to dig themselves a hole in the beach and in our boggy ground. I have posted some photos on my attached web site. Any suggestions on the right tractor for me will be appreciated.

Peter:
As a landscaper I have operated off landing craft and barges many times before doing remote summer homes, the main problem I see that you will have is the amount of deck space you have. My any of my machines with loader on, but nothing on the 3pth (i.e. ballast) are +15' long. If you have that much deck space you are away to the races, or else you will have to put the bucket up over railing and see around it, been there, done that, not fun!! As far as the operation on soft material goes, a 4wd with turf tires will float on almost anything, certainly dry sand is no problem at all. I will try to find a picture to send you of the barge we used last summer, it was powered strictly by the pto from the tractor itself, by having no pilot house or drive train it was very small & light, with only a 6" draft while carrying a 40hp 4wd and a few implements. Best of luck.

Have you tried tracks mounted over the wheels on your bobcat? I saw one operating this past summer in some real mucky stuff and it did quite well.Just a thought,i don't get to many.

Peter,

I have a Yanmar dump carrier that sounds like what you need. It is a rubber tracked dump truck with a 5.5' X 5" bed. It is about the size of a John Deere Gator, but built like a tank. I rent this to contractors and builders to haul material where nothing else will go. I have one customer who hauls rock (rip rap) down to the shore of a large lake we have here. Some of the slopes are 45 degrees. I also am a dealer for IHI (a Japanese excavator mfg.) who builds these machines. The brochure says it will climb a 60 degree slope, who would try this I don't know. These machines will carry 2.5 to 3 tons over very soft ground or mud. If you are interested in some pictures, send me a message.

I saw your web page, it is very interesting.
