Oh to have an excavator for one or two days! But got use what I got.
Have dug several holes with the 175 for big rocks and have a few more to dig for remaining rock and stumps. My first method of digging was to dig in, take a scoop, back out and pile it on the side of the hole. This works fine, but takes a while because of all the back and forth tracking. I was wondering if digging like a dozer would be just as quick or quicker? Last Saturday, I dug a smaller hole, but this time dug in and pushed the dirt up and out of the hole to the other side (like a dozer would). I had that hole dug, filled and covered in what seemed like a short amount of time, granted it was a smaller hole. That's all the experimenting I've done.
Any advice from some who have done both on which is most efficient for a track loader?
