Noah- not really looking for a new duramax at the moment. My dodge is awesome for the time being. If the right deal comes along on a Denali duramax tho...

Ksss- got about 200 hours on the 300 now. Have had a few small electrical quarks here and there that disappear, besides that it has been a great machine. The power is awesome , good on fuel, and I love the cab. It was 105 here yesterday and I had the a/c on low and I had to keep turning it off. I will try to do a full review soon.

Here are a few pics of the dumper beside my pick up ( Ram 3500 ) so you can see the size comparison. I will get some action shots of it on the job tomorrow.

The dumper looks larger when its pictured with the pickup. I think I would, like you discovered, its one of the pieces of equipment that you kick yourself for not buying sooner. I think it would be very helpful when bedding smaller trenches, kind of like a mobile bedding box, also when pulling concrete out of tight places. Rather than tear up the ground making 100 trips with a skid steer you can make 50 with this and with its articulated steering, not tear up the ground. I have never even seen one to rent in this part of the Country. WN needs to get push these harder in NA, especially in the rental markets I think they would really catch on once people started utilizing them on the job site.

Ksss- I am really surprised how much material it holds I am going to guess about 3.5 cubic yards heaped. Also having the 180 swivel for the hopper really saves on turf. I like having my machines like this and my tracked dumper, I can see on certain jobs eliminating ( and the tracked dumper already has many times) landscape restoration. Plus it can cary quite a bit more then a bobcat bucket. Definitely allows me to bid pretty competitively on certain jobs.kinda glad no body rents them around here!

What do those dumpers go for roughly? Looks very productive. Can you load it with the skid steer or does it spill over the edge?
