    Im doing a job where im going to take up the sod all the way around this house and dump some top soil in there and then build 2 pretty big berms in the back yard..... all together its going to be about 20 yards of dirt and i didnt know whether i would be better off with a dingo with a bucket or a skid loader.. on the bid i included a large amount of equipment rental .. thanks steve

    Skid steer for sure. The Dingo although useful it is very slow

    Is the property open? If there's no gates or other obstacles that would require a smaller pice of equipment such as the Dingo. I would go for the skid steer.

    okay, I'm going to ask a stupid question. Why not have the twenty yards dumped much closer to the worksite? Just as easy to clean up tracks from a dump truck than a skid steer.

    I am renting one of those 463 bobcats becuase of gate issues, was thinking of the dingo but i have to do runs from the street to the back yard so the skid steer is fatser. I wish my lx 665 or even my ls180 would fit in the back but alas i must use the tiny machine.
