Denny, I know lots of folks frown on having extra iron around but I sure have no regrets about buying that John Deere track hoe. It has a million uses around here. Didn't cost much more than a Wheathart Heavy Hitter and is a whole lot handier on the fence line. The bucket holds a full bundle of posts so once the line is strung you can push a half mile of posts in the ground in well under 2 hours.
