    How do you like the 450, i plan on getting one in the next year or so... had any problems with the diesel? Do you plow with it?

    450 had been great. Truck has a ton of power. Ya, I plow a few bigger lots with it and plows awesome. The motor is a 7.3L and I have had no probs with it.

    Hey L30 - looks great.

    Did you buy it new, and how has the Dingo worked out for you?

    I have a Thomas 25G wheeled mini-skid, 25hp Kohler - pretty similar to the 220. I used it last summer to drill post holes. This summer I'd like to rent it out (with me as operator) to smaller landscapers who might not have their own equipment but would rather get some help vs. doing it by hand -- do you think there's a market for that type of work? What do you think a day rate should be?

    Thanks, GL

    Yes, I bought the Dingo new and it has been a back saver!! We use it on just about evey project we do. From mulching, new installs.....etc.... it's an awesome little machine. I absolutley think there's a market for that type of work. I loan mine out time to time to a friend of mine that is also in the industry. I myself charge 25.00 an hour just for the Dingo on projects. Then, you need to figure your hourly charge as the operator. If I can get between 65-75.00per hour for myself and the Dingo I am happy with that. :usflag:
