Heavy Lifting with a Power Trac

This will probably be more geared toward the Hardscape Guys, but do any of you own or have used a Power Trac 1460 or 2460 to move pallets of stone? I have owned a 425, 1430, and a 2445 TLB versions of Power Trac machines, but have not used the larger machine. I was wondering if it will skid a pallet weighing 2,900 lbs around a jobsite or maybe load/unload off of a 4 foot high truck body? I liked the machines I had in the past and know that the 2445 was rated at 1800 lb lift capacity but would lift 2200 to 2400 or so at 3 feet above the ground. So I am looking for professional advice from those of you that have or have used one in this situation.
