Mini skid steer pics!

Lets see all the mini skid steers out there and how they are used on jobs. Ill start, here is my Toro Dingo 322 at a tree job lifting some heavy logs. I also use it for mulching and any other job that i think it would be handy for.

That sure is a strong little thing! What is the capacity of something like that?

That is impressive. Must weigh more than it looks since it is not tipping at all.

Man thats impressive!!! I've thought about adding one of these and wondered just how much they could lift and be used for. Those pictures tell a lot.

I think they can pick up in the 5-600 range. That's "operating capacity" I believe. I'm sure you can get more weight up if you wanted.

It lifts between 500-600lbs but if you have someone else standing on the back with you you can lift up more. It does not do any damage to the turf as long as you are not turning on a dime. Also when you have a big load up in the front like in the pic above there is not alot of weight on the back tires which means you can make alot tighter turns.

Here are two pictures of my tx420 with an attachment that I made to remove small tree stumps and nearly any bush. Im working on a hydraulic grapple that I will be able to attach to my forks and to one of my buckets to help with mulch/loose debris and logs.
