Mike, No I did not buy the tracks, they come in three widths and are made from snowmobile tracks which I think are the way to go, but for my use I do not think I'll need them. I did buy a 6 foot jeep plow & I am having quick disconnect brackets built for snow plowing. You asked why diesel over the gas....well simple more hp and longer life better fuel consumption, hydralics are not as efficient. I personaly like that Kubota diesel & the guys at Triton did a great job fitting it in such a compact unit. Don't get me wrong there are some things I would do different but thats just the way I am.
Curt, If hydralics were uncontrollable you would never see them in all the different applications they are being used in these days,airplanes ect.. and yes there are some isues to be conserned with so unless you know what you are doing do not build your own hydralic unit. The hydraulic oil never runs over 145 degrees in my machine and hydralic lines are of high quality. You should inspect things and take care of it like anything else. This work horse machine will be around for many years and does serve its master well. IF you would like pictures of any part of this machine sent to you let me know.
