That thing is amazing and definitely well suited to the terrain of British Columbia. I know at times I've wished for a beefier undercarriage on mini to midi sized excavators to make better use of a dozer blade maybe combined with an elevated drive sprocket like on tracked skid-steers or some Cat dozers.
