    I just found this file, it was me using the Dingo for the first time. It was a few years ago and I had to rip out lots of shrubs and dig out for the stone wall/patio, bring in tons of gravel and mulch and fit thru a small fence opening. This is where I learned a lot about the Dingo, using the backhoe, its limitations and its possibilities.

    The first one is me holding the camera while moving the backhoe arm with one hand.

    The second one is me moving some material thru the fence but the bucket had to be lifted up and over so it would fit.

    The third is me taking a video as I am walking down the path to the bird watching bench. All the plants are in (I made a meadow) but some mulch still needs to be put it.

    Ahh, I just found two more.

    The first one is me moving soil from the staging area over a make-shift bridge I built out of scrap 8x8's and plywood.

    The second is me and a helper shoveling the dirt up to the second planting tier. The turf friendly tracks on the tx420 did not have enough bite to make it up the hill so this was the best it would do. Eventually we had to move the rest with 5 gallon buckets:eek:

    It was a neat project though, I rented a 26' Ryder Truck and loaded it up with 2 pallets of BlackDiamond mulch, 300 plants and the Dingo. Than drove it down to Keuka lake. It rained everyday that I had scheduled to work on the project. :realmad:

    I'm going to guess he was asking if it "was only one dingo" :dizzy:

    Nope. The first was a wheeled stand-on and the 2nd was a track walkbehind.

    Iv'e got to run a tracked walkbehind before. Really a neat little machine once you get fimiliar with it. It's not going to move mountians but it sure will sneak into about anywhere. We used one to load several trailer loads of topsoil from a old pile and it worked very well. It's made just so that you can heap full the bucket and it's just balanced. We also had a landscape rake which worked nice, but I still wish it had been a harley rake.

    Thanks for the decode, and yes it was two different jobs, two different Dingo's.

    Don't be sorry, thanks for the comments, usually I can decipher but for some reason today it just wasn't in the cards.

    No video this time, just illustrating how I moved 12 yards of soil by myself, and its final result.
