Toro Soil Cultivator Through Gate?

Just wondering if anyone has tried to lift the soil conditioner through a gate with the Dingo 420 with bucket or forks? Homeowner is sketchy about removing a panel, but I don't want to kill anyone trying to avoid it

How high will a dingo lift the attachment and still travel? High enough to get the SC over the fence? If you are only off a couple inches get a couple/ few 2x6 or 2x8 planks to bring your overall height up. You could probaly get it done this way, I ran a ramrod miniskid years(many) ago and was able to access a backyard with a tiller like this, I don't remember how tall the fence was though.

Definitely not high enough to get it over the fence. I'm not even sure it will get it up high enough off the ground on it's side to move it. The thing is 51" x 51" and I'm going to rent it, otherwise I would just give it a try. Hate to get there and waste time trying to get it in. Time is money!!

Thanks for the reply though. I think I'll just plan on taking out a section of the fence.

How much does it weigh? Is there a walkway there? Maybe one of those dollies with 4 casters you see movers using. Put the tool on its side and roll it through, if no walkway buy a sheet of plywood and cut it accordingly.

How tall of a fence are we talking here? I have lifted my harley rake over a 5-6ft wood fence b4.

I think I'll just rent the forks and haul it through on it's side. Need to look it over and make sure I'm not gonna tear it up with a chain lifting it. Seems like more trouble than it's worth though. Might be easier to convince them to remove a fence panel.

Thanks for the replies.

You cannot lift the cultivator(attached to the dingo) over the gate? The fork rental should only cost $25-$35 though.
