How well can a Dingo dig?

How capable are these dingo's? Can they dig?

A budy of mine has the Dingo with the diesel in it and and used it to dig a 4' deep hole and it did a great job.

It really depends on the model you get. I have used one and was not overly impressed with its digging ability w/ the front loader but I have never used the backhoe so that may work better. The Dingo is a good machine but for the money I think I would get a kubota BX 24 it doesn't cost much more and is a better machine for our uses.

Were you using a bucket with teeth?

This is really good. I just bought a Dingo on ebay, and am now really looking forwards to it.
