Terra-Track was created in 2009 in response to the growing risk of wildfire, and the growing need for a practical and environmentally responsible means of fuel reduction. We are experts in the construction/waste industry and recognize the necessity of using heavy equipment in the most efficient and environmentally responsible way.
We like to say that Terra-Track offers Engineering Savvy & Environmental Sense.
Terra-Track’s parent company, Blue Ridge Services, Inc., provides engineering/consulting services to the solid waste industry. The president, Neal Bolton, is a registered civil engineer. And, while this doesn’t mean we’re providing you with engineering services, it does mean you’re benefiting from our experience and professional training.

We are also a Class A contractor – License No. 482821 – licensed under the authority of the California Contractor’s State License Board. And again, while not every project requires a contractor’s license, with Terra-Track you have peace of mind knowing that we are highly qualified and competent.

We are bonded as required by the State Contractor’s License Board. Terra-Track is fully insured. All of our workers are covered by Worker’s Compensation insurance and we carry $2million in general liability insurance.

Read About Terra-Track's Equipment
This is not your typical skid steer tractor, nor will you see one like it at a construction site. It is the largest and most powerful skid steer manufactured by the Bobcat Company. It has 92 horsepower and as it sits here, weighs nearly 13,000 pounds.
It is equipped with a Forestry Package that includes: ISO 3449 Level II Falling Object Protective Structure (FOPS); top and rear windows of ¼ inch polycarbonate, as well as guards to block debris from the muffler, lights and hydraulic components. It also includes headlight protection and this ¾” thick polycarbonate door – which is 250 times stronger than glass. Why this special Forestry Package? It’s designed to protect the machine and the operator while working in thick vegetation.
This rear-mounted winch is rated at 15,000 pounds nearly twice the rating of those you’ll see on pickups or SUVs. It’s useful for moving large, fallen trees and other debris out of the way. And perhaps more importantly …it ensures that when we’re done working in steep, inaccessible areas, our machine is always able to climb back out. Our T320 is equipped with various safety devices including front and rear lights, fire extinguishers and a back-up alarm. To provide an added degree of safety, we’ve also added a high visibility strobe light and this rear-view camera to provide maximum visibility when backing up.
Depending on job conditions, we may also use other attachments for our machine including a bucket, grapple or deck mower. And for projects that require off-haul, we have a large dump trailer that can transport over 5 tons of material per load.
In addition to our heavy equipment, we also utilize a wide variety of hand and power tools for areas requiring cautious handwork. These include heavy duty weed whackers, brush saws and pole saws. To provide top performance, our hand tools are of the same type and quality as used by the California Department of Forestry and the U.S. Forest Service.
