Anyone used one of these before. Rented one today to buggy concrete about 100 yards most of which was on pavement. Could not get this thing to catch traction what so ever once i left pavement. Ended up using to guys to push it most of the way. On top of that bucket would not dump with anything more then a half load in it. Talked to rental place and they did refund my money which was nice but idk if they have something set up wrong or what the thing was gargabe in my opinion.

The rental place should have given you track mats for soft off pavement surfaces. Reverse seems to get better traction on them, not sure if that would have helped you or the mats for that matter.

Ground wasn't really soft had some dew tried reverse helped a little but when I had to pull it was much harder then pushing

This looks like it would work better for a skid.
