    How do those little dumpers do in sand? They would be pretty handy for some of my work.

    AEL, how do you like the wacker, I have 6 of the benford terex dumpers and love them. I have looked into the wackers. Here are two pics of the terex's

    The WN look better if I may be so bold as to say; that bright yellow is eye catching.

    I'd say a little on the robot death machine/clone army side...:)

    How long have you ran them? What types of projects do you do?

    Nice machines Mateo. What type of work do you do ? I am very happy with the wacker product. Main reason for chosing them was the dealer network here, and the fact that they run a hydrostatic transmission on them.

    Stuvecorp- we have been using dumpers for about 10 years now, I have two 5 tons and 4 six tons. They roughly all haul between 4.5 and 5.5 yards depending on who loads them.
    We do golf course renovation work, for us they are perfect because they are maneuverable and don't do much damage.
    AEL - I like the idea of they hydrostatic drive on the wackers. The terex have the same tranny as a backhoe which isn't bad but hydrostatic would be nice. I buy the terexs used with about 1500 hrs, and we haven't had any major issues yet.
