Getting pavers to the back yard

Since the days of holland stone and 6x9 are dying/dead and everyone wants random size and slabs how are you transporting them to tight yards? Paver carts are unuseable on these brick that come in flat layers instead of bands. They seem to get scratched up in wheelbarrows, i bought one of those flat wheelbarrows and that thing is sweet but im envisioning a cart i can drop a whole skid on and pull it into the yard with the mini ex or something. Am i crazy? This should start a good fight. Cant wait.

The forkster attachment for the dingo would be perfect if it wasnt so wide. My issue is the 4' gates i always encounter

Have a cart made for this purpose, maybe make a trailer hitch to hook to your mini. Even if it only held half a pallet you're still in good shape.

http://www.e-ztrail.com/compact.php Look at the 46" wide version, just add a deck and you're ready to go.

2 ton capacity is perfect, i already came up with a plan to put a reciever on the top of the dozer blade so i can pop in a pintle then raise it up and get to truckin. I cant believe no one has done this before

You could make it a dump bed and load with the mini to haul out dirt (just for DVS) and haul in base/rock.

People come up with all kinds of ideas. Just most don't think to tell the world.

Also, Hardscape guys aren't very good at thinking outside the box. They usually just do what everyone else does. You know, like buy $45k trucks, then whine when they can't keep their $13 / hr help
