Maybe coz you told him to stick his job where the sun don't shine? Just kidding, I ran my dozer over the tracks on my property today and I must be starting to get the hang of the old girl, except for a couple of lapses in concentration that left some whoops but overall not a bad result, without back blading!
The rest was excellent (by my standards of using a dozer) and even widened the tracks a fair bit, much nicer to drive on than before. The reason I needed to do this was from the torrential rains and springs popping up all over the place, I had some fairly badly rutted tracks that are no problem in a car, but nasty on a motorbike.
I will keep trying to improve my skills with this old girl, but as Dave McCallister suggested, I have some slop in the pins and bushes and the wedges that lock the blade keep coming loose and playing havoc with attempts to achieve a smooth finish, but these are not a finishing machine, they were designed to push dirt. Good operators may get a great result, but I don't fit that description.
