Rock on Cajun! I've heard and agree with the statement "if your goals don't scare you- they're not big enough" I think your sand bag idea will be great once you can get it up off the ground. What does the bagging attachment cost?

Attachment was a shy under $11k and sand bags run $0.24/each so a pallet of 6k bags is $1400.00.

Its going to be a lil tippy on my mustang. The Fel on my tractor will have no issues. Hopefully when this takes off a new larger skid is my future.

I wouldn't mind using the tractor. Especially having a cab. Skids get tippy so fast with loads in the arm.

Although we had a wide track t300. That thing didn't even budge on a full pallet of pavers
