Track Loader to clear trees? Pros/Cons?

I've cleaned up a lot of land, and the truth is, there is no one machine that is "best for the job". Dozers are great on the small stuff, track.

Digging with a skid steer or track loader

 · I have dug in sand with one of those old track loaders, D6 sized and it's pretty fast in the sand. The machine moves slowly but that bucket holds a lot. Of course this was just making roadside ditches and a rentention pond, but the same machine also did a good job clearing trees and debris as well as some boulders.

Reply to Digging a pond with a tractor

 · Honestly though I believe the extra stress and wear on the tractor trying to dig any sizable pond would be a bit much. Might be cheaper in the long run to buy a loader use that to build your pond then resale it. I'd pass on using a box blade to try and dig a pond of any depth. Maybe super shallow in sandy dirt. That would be it.
