    on the isuzu box trucks with the ramp similar to a super lawn truck what kind of weight can go up these ramps? do you think it coould handle a dingo with an attachment on it? i know they handle the heavier lawn mowers fine.
    thanks in advance,

    I've seen dingos on the open trucks as well as small tractors and cars. I would think that it might work because of the distribution of weight instead of on wheels. BTW how much does it weight? There was a guy in Kodak TN selling a box truck and wheeled dingo together about a year ago and I think they are about the same weight.

    I rent a Ditch Witch sk650-mini with a bucket and havent had any problems loading or unloading on either of my isuzu's. One open and one box truck.
