Its a childs toy! They have a few different ones that size over here, but I've only seen the contractors use them for going down into ditches and flumes. They don't dig much of anything unless it's already been loosened up. Not worth anything to me.

I know you guys make fun of these little 'toys', but I think they should be looked at with more insight.

To me, this is a sign of things to come. The days are coming where things like shovels, rakes, wheelbarrels, etc. are going to be a thing of the past.

As a small operation, I love this equipment. Everybody I know still laughs at me when I say I purchased a dingo, but when I show them the work I accomplish in a day, they seem to not laugh anymore.

I can now install a 150 sq foot walk in one full day, with nothing but my dingo, tools and my self. I've worked for many companies that can't even do that with 3 guys and a tractor/backhoe combo.

These tools are very efficient at what they do. Small jobs. Jobs that eat a lot of labor hours with limited profit.

For the right operation, machines like this are very handy. Just a matter of how your business is set up.

Your right Steve.....

I was just saying its not worth much for what I do. Like you said though, for the small scale projects, that stuff may be okay to scrape off the sod, etc, etc. I just don't usually need anything that small.....you know how it is on the airport, wiiidee open!

Anyway, I used to dought the dingo sized skid steers, but I've heard good things about them lately, so I'll wait till I get to try them myself before I judge them.

Thanks for keeping my ignorant eyes open Steve!

Size does not matter. Well, in this case, it sort of does! I've seen something like that at a renatal place, but it was a little bigger!

I have used small equipment (not that small), usually I rent it. I use it for limited access and even inside. The other day I used my mini-ex and a rented dingo in a warehouse to dig a long trench for some new piping. Would have had to be done by hand if it wasn't for the small equipment.

I'm not saying all small equipment is bad....

I will vouch for our Bobcat loaders and mini-x's all day.....I was talking about that teeny tiny little thing. We do at least 60-70% of all of our jobs with our Bobcat fleet.

Our backhoe has been VERY jealous since we got our mini-x!
