I didn't put a whole lot of thought in the purchase, just needed it for the job and have wanted one for our shop/storage area for a while. It's going to be great for our stacks of fert/cement/etc we keep in the dry. Now we loose a lot of floorspace because we can't get the pallets in there straight due to door locations and the size of the loader.

You will get raped on resale value when Bobcat decides to splash their name on someone's brand of pallet lift.

very funny!

Pretty incredible how a decal kit from cat for a skid steer will cost you about a grand, but you can get a pallet mover for $370!

nice dump, i believe you can also take the dump bed off for towing goosenecks or a lowboy when needed. would that make it a roll off. i bet the mpg is great on it.

How much are those powered wheel barrows worth ?

Lots of places I could use one of those to move demo debris through walking pathways to my truck. Save a h*ll a lot of walking with garbage cans full of wood debris and old concrete chunks etc.

We haven't had a chance to use it yet. Seems good enough so far. I bought this one simply because we've had to wheel a lot of gravel/dirt over the years and crew isnt getting any younger becasue of it. I'll let you know after we've had a good opotunity to use it. I wil say that some of the vids I've seen on youtube seemed promosing.
