 track loader versus dozer - need advice

PLEASE REPLY BY EMAIL DIRECTLY TO nusrat@rocketmail.comI need to clear and terrace a large area of undisturbed, hilly, wooded, VERY stony soil (from gravel all the way up to 60-ton boulders). The terrain is very uneven, with slopes of thirty percent and more.(1) All other things being equal -- weight, HP, footprint, wheelbase, etc. -- or as close to equal as possible, how do these two kinds of machine compare for strength in dozing /pushing / clearing?Is the dozer configuration innately stronger, due to the lower / straighter pivot point for the base of the hydraulic arms?(2) I'm assuming that a tracked machine is innately more stable and less "tippy" than wheels on slopes (at least when going straight up or down the slope, not at an angle). Right?(3) The main reason I'm even considering the tracked loader instead of a dozer, is to be able to simultaneously carry a backhoe. From my experience so far, trying to use smaller (wheeled) machines, I frequently have to switch from using a blade or loader bucket to using a backhoe to dig out a large rock, before I can continue with the blade. Also, I think that, when going up and down slopes, having the backhoe extended straight out and parallel to the ground helps to prevent tipping, using the backhoe either as a counterweight (on the uphill side of the loader), or as a one-legged stabilizer on the downhill side. Overall, what machine do you think would be best?PLEASE REPLY BY EMAIL DIRECTLY TO nusrat@rocketmail.comThanks!
