    I can't decide what I want here, a full size bobcat, 36" bobcat or a dingo.

    I know in town here, the trenchers to be rented fit a 36" bobcat and not the full size. But does that same trencher fit the dingo/bobcat mt?

    I don't want a full size bobcat if I can't get attatchments for it.

    Also, are the dingo and bobcat mt attatchments interchangable?

    Bobcat mt52/55 use full size quick attach. Dingo and most other mini skids have a smaller attachment plate. Adaptors can be found for either one though.

    We manufacture adapter plate from Dingo to Bobcat and from Bobcat to Dingo called converter plate so you could buy a Toro Dingo and used the Bobcat Attachment or buy a NT52/MT55 and used the Dingo Attachments.

    i have a plate with my 2 ditchwitch sk650 and it works like a champ we used to have a bobcat mt but upgraded to the ditchwitch, only realy problem we've had is the auger off our bobcat couldn't handle the MUCH increased hyd power of the ditchwitch. BUT w/ the adaptor we can use the bucket off our larger bobcats on the sk650s, which is great for big mulch jobs.

    To all who were interested in the converter from Bobcat MT to Toro Dingo attachments, please find the picture of our new model with toggle clamps: it's easier to latch and unlatch the converter, you don't have to bolt in on your unit: it's just another attachment for your MT. Hope you will enjoy, other pictures and video coming soon.
