Man, those Viburnum look spectacular. That sucks about not being able to do the work to the quality you want to...but if it doesn't pay, then no sense in wasting your time.

Thanks. Actually, it's kinda nice not edging those beds! I hate edging but love it when it's finished.

I could probably run the Echo bed redefiner down the line.

I know I'm late on this thread but it all looks great. How big of a tree can you get that dingo under? Do you think it will handle a 12' eastern white pine?

Thank you. The Dingo has surprised me on a couple trees. All depends on the ball size. The largest tree it has handled was a Cyprus tree that I had spaded out with a 45" tree spade and "short balled," meaning they cut the pointy bottom off of the ball. It was then put in a B&B basket. That was HEAVY but it did it with two men on the rear platform.

The machine will lift damn near anything- it's just the counter-weight (tipping) that will restrict you.

Last fall I moved a kids playhouse with it. I had two extended 4x4 hollow steel beams over the forks that extended out about 9 ft. to allow me to get under the house. Two ratchet-straps keeping everything stable....I wish I had pictures. We had two of us on the back AND the girl who i was doing the job for...3 people squeezed onto the platform moving this thing 4 houses down the street.
