    Has anyone rented or bought the powerhouse pro prowler from home depot? It's the mini skid steer loader similar to the dingo. Any info would be appreciated.

    I'm trying to compare the powerhouse to the dingo as far as price, manuverabilty, ease of use, etc.

    Be careful when buying from HD. I believe that if you do to try to save a few bucks, when the warranty work is needed, the local dealer will turn you away. I think that HD will send you to an authorized repair center. That could end up being several hundred miles away from you. To me, it is not worth the savings.

    Mark is correct... HD does not service their new or used equipment. The repair facilities are normally local service shops. Here the service center is my regular dealer... so that works out good for us. Their store is 10 miles from this HD. Other area HD's have other local (regional) repair facilities.
    I did have one of these repair facilities "misplace" one of my toro mowers one time, but HD replaced it with a new one.

    Thanks for the advice. I do think Home Depot does stand by their products.

    Out of curiosity, what does one cost with a loader bucket?

    Why isn't it listed on their website?

    Powerhouse is basically the same, made by the same company, as the Boxer.
    HD wanted their own brand and had them change name and color scheme.
    Looks like a good solid machine. From the limited research I've done to date, the Boxer would be my first choice in mini skids.

    The unit is about $15,000 with bucket, and forks.
