Hydraulic Trackbarrow!

Not sure if this machine has been featured on this site yet? but has anyone ever used these cool machines? Theres a few vids on YouTube showing how well they preform. Its called the Hi-T500 dumper, with a price tag of $14,500. Yeah, I know its pricey but if its productive & gets the excavation material out of a backyard patio job, quicker than conventional hand wheelbarrows, then profits ahead of the game! What do ya think...

Whats unique about those machines, are that they can multi-stack loads into a bin or trailer!

I think a compact tract steer like dingo or boxer for the same price would be a better buy and give you more versatility to add attachments

I agree with FL- like I think its awesome it swings like that but a toro dingo would've been a better buy ... can it be returned?

can you haul as much in one trip with a dingo as you could this?

Still dingo= more bang for your buck

probably not quite but close with a large dirt bucket. The better question is can you dig with that or trench or get an auger dig a whole carry a tree and plant it, a rotodairon, grade soil or gravel? The benefits of a compact tracked machine BY FAR AND AWAY out weigh the limitations of this very specialized piece of equipment

I see this being profitable machine if you have a larger install company or division. I wouldn't make something like this my first mini track machine. If I had 4 or 5 mini tracks already this would be great to have to move materials faster, but $14k is hard to swallow for a single purpose unit.

I could buy a sweet used skid for that price....

and plow in the winter.

That is one badarse barrow though I admit...but not 15k badarse.
