For you site guys, I'm curious how much real dirt work you can do with a mini x. Reason I ask is that we are going to do the site work for our new house and shop. We have a full basement going in, let's call it 30x40, plus a frost wall for a 24x24 attached garage. The shop will likely be in the area of 30x50-60, all on frost wall. We'll also be trenching for the well line (at least 4' deep here) plus installing the septic tanks and field. Is it unrealistic to think this excavation/sitework can be done with a 9000# excavator and a skid steer? Obviously, we're not going to move dirt like a Cat 330, but is it realistic? I mean, we use these machines for landscaping and some lite site work. what's it going to be like moving dirt on this scale with small equipment?
