Not sure if this machine has been featured on this site yet? but has anyone ever used these cool machines? Theres a few vids on YouTube showing how well they preform. Its called the Hi-T500 dumper, with a price tag of $14,500. Yeah, I know its pricey but if its productive & gets the excavation material out of a backyard patio job, quicker than conventional hand wheelbarrows, then profits ahead of the game! What do ya think...Thumbs Up

Whats unique about those machines, are that they can multi-stack loads into a bin or trailer!

I think a compact tract steer like dingo or boxer for the same price would be a better buy and give you more versatility to add attachments

I agree with FL- like I think its awesome it swings like that but a toro dingo would've been a better buy ... can it be returned?

can you haul as much in one trip with a dingo as you could this?

Still dingo= more bang for your buck

probably not quite but close with a large dirt bucket. The better question is can you dig with that or trench or get an auger dig a whole carry a tree and plant it, a rotodairon, grade soil or gravel? The benefits of a compact tracked machine BY FAR AND AWAY out weigh the limitations of this very specialized piece of equipment

Put that on the out of business in under a year list.

I see this being profitable machine if you have a larger install company or division. I wouldn't make something like this my first mini track machine. If I had 4 or 5 mini tracks already this would be great to have to move materials faster, but $14k is hard to swallow for a single purpose unit.

I could buy a sweet used skid for that price....

and plow in the winter.

That is one badarse barrow though I admit...but not 15k badarse.

I have to say, that is a very neat machine. I'd love to have one, just because its kinda cool. However, like others have said there is very little versatility with this machine, all it can do is the one job.

Now if this were something that cost $3,000 or so...then I could see it becoming more popular. But at $14,500 you could buy afford to buy plenty of normal wheel barrows and a worker to go with each and they would be way more productive than this machine.

Yup, I would never pay 14k for that equipment, like other said, you can find a use skidsteer for that price.
