Hello; The bulldozer in the pond has gotten into a layer of blue mud (clay). It's very much like molding clay. Soft always a smooth texture. If you ever get into some STOP, then try to get out before you sink. We hit a layer next to a small stream it was 4 feet under surface, then lasted another 6 feet. Rule 1: "What in the hell made you think that would work?" If you hear that every day, just leave. Rule 2: Make sure you always have something bigger and badder standing by to save you, if Rule 1 applies to you, but you keep coming back. The Komatsu dozer in the pond has virtually no grouser bars left on its tracks, this is why he gets stuck. What we used to call ‘dry weather slicks’. Seems the operator is inexperienced and it didn’t occur to him that tracks are no different to rubber tyres. No tread depth equals no grip! I have no idea what the guy at the 05:15 mark was thinking he was doing, but that's a fine way to mess up a lot of people's day trying to get that thing out. Hopefully they had another dozer and/or an excavator there. I've worked around every type of heavy equipment there is including the over sized dump trucks used for mining we called them yuks pronounced U-Ks. Anyway those three bulldozers in tandem coming down the hill is standard practice and you'd be fired if you couldn't do it lol and worse still the guy giving the thumbs up driving on what he's just laid (I'm guessing that's why you had him on here) how exactly do you think they make roads off of piles or even entrance roads etc (you have to be pushing a very large amount of material in front of you of course)? That's exactly how they all do it. The dang Dozer weighs so much that the soil (whatever material) gets compacted immediately. Yes you got some real dummies on here but I'm confused about some picks.
