I bet once you had one it would be used all the time.

I would love one but picking the right size would be important I would think?

I am still very very happy with mine. We or the 3001 thinking it would be big enough and it was for most of the jobs. Then we started using a 6001 . Awesome machine. Currently it is on standby for a tunnelling project. I don't know how we worked with out these before.

Neuswede- we have them on tracks and wheels . The tracked one only got 8 hours put on it this year!

They have a long history in europe, I remember 25 years ago as a kid running one that had to be 30 years old at the time, I remember it had a swing handle to start it.... Run them for awhile in England too.... Wouldn't want it on tracks though... It would be a very different machine...

I wonder how they would handle shuffling boulders around. lol

Cool little machine. I could see where it would come in handy just not something I could use very often.

Yea for me it would not be something that I would use on every job, but on certain jobs it could certainly pay its way and in other jobs, the increase in productivity could land you the job. I am thinking about jobs we do for DOE, college campus, high schools, where you cant get dump trucks close to the site of the work (tearing out concrete mostly). Running material back and forth even with a 3K plus skid steer isn't very productive. A dumper could really tip the scales on these types of jobs. Anywhere that you cant get a normal dump truck to dump material or load out material is where a machine like this could save the day. Generally it would have to be the big model. Europe has an even larger model than what they bring to the USA.

I used an older Raco wheeled dumper on a creek job where we couldn't get a truck in. It moved a lot of dirt (650 m^3)! The wheeled dumpers shouldn't be overlooked as they don't tear up the ground when they turn as do the tracked machines.

If you have a even just a few loads of dirt to move on site one of these makes sense. I can fit almost 4 buckets from my Case sv300 in the small 3001 dumper and i was fitting a try axle load of stone dust ( 22cy apprx) in 3.5 -4 loads with the 6001.

Since I do residential work mostly I use a Toro Workman as my onsite dumptruck. I bought one used from a local golf course. Hydraulic dump and carries a ton of material. It saves the tracks and tires and trips on my trackloader or my tractor plus is better for the yard.
I've seen one of these tho and they are pretty cool.
