I love crawlers. I hate crawlers. I have a JD40c I've pretty much rebuilt from one end to the other. Right now since 12/27/12 I have at least 25 hours of seat time. Without it we'd still be snowbound. It's so useful in deep snow that I can't see how anyone can do without one.
OTOH, I have a JD 1010clb. Bad tracks, problems with hydraulics. Great machine, but tracks are very expensive. I also have a D47u Cat. Again, a lot of work to get it going.
If you have the money and patience, they are indispensable. Some people say to get a 4wd tractor instead, that they do the same job. Well, they don't. 4wd chews through the soil, tracks ride on top. That's the biggest difference and if you have areas where floatation and traction are an issue then tracks are the answer.
