Good point, once you own that capability, its nice being the only guy around that has it, its easy money until others see you making money on it and then the gig is up.

Alldayrj-i haven't tried to load it with the skid steer but I'm sure it could be done. And fully equipped I would call it 50k plus taxes.

That WN dumper sure is interesting. Am going to look up the specs but did you try other sizes? Can we have an argument on tires vs track dumpers?

I can definitely see uses for my work but it's another thing to have money for it(but see the efficiency potential). I wonder if WN could get these out if they are aggressive with financing/programs?

I looked at the smaller size and the larger size and this one seems to be a perfect fit for the smaller jobs we do. Just like skidsteers and ctl each one has there place . I wish I would of bought my tracked and wheeled ones years ago. How's things going with you stuve?

I bet you could put it to work for other contractors with your operator when you don't need it yourself. I do this with my skid steers and I want to start pushing it more now that I have the Harley rake.

I'm hanging in there. Lost like two months this spring with how wet it's been but am looking at some cool projects if they happen. It's been all landscape and hardscape stuff this season.

I'll throw some pictures up next week...

And to get this back on track, how high will the dumper dump? Could it dump in to a low dumpster on the ground or say a contractor dump?

It wouldn't dump over the side of a typical box, I would say the height to bottom of hopper when dumping is around 36-40"

You could drive it right into a dumpster though which is insanely cool. Excavator and dumper on site, no skid steer or ctl tearing it up.

What does it weigh empty?
