    Came across the attached machine, I'm thinking it would be much more versatile then a mini skid as you could carry more fill (14 cu.ft.)with it as well as auger, lift pallets do light excavation and it is still less then 34" wide. We move a lot of material out of/ in to tight backyards and a mini skid bucket is just too small, I'm thinking this unit could do that plus augering and carrying in stones. As it is self loading we could use one machine on the jobsite.Any comments.

    How does it load itself?

    The auger is replaced with a bucket to load the dumper, it lifts back over the box and fills it. Attached is a picture of one without the tilt cylinders. I'll have to ask the importer who builds it, we run similar machines of theirs and they sent me information on this one to see what I thought, but it looks like a different manufacturer from the units we have.

    How does it compare (power and capacity) to the mini skids used today?

    I would hate to load some dry topsoil with that thing. You would get covered in dust.

    Can it dig, because that's the hard part.

    I kinda like it- if it is solid, works, and is affordable!
