    Just a few pic's of the 4 in 1 in action. People often seem to ask questions about them. The No 1 must have for a skid. JMHO.

    You pad down and don't dig a grave for yourself....go have a look at what a dune buggy is running....well thats the theory anyway.....but...it could be that these tyres were really cheap too!payup

    I see I see. I'm not sure if I'll be seeing a dune buggy anytime in the near future but I get the point. We actually use to put studded snow tires on our skids in the winter because we were never running them on flat ground. A standard winter tire had much better traction than an aggressive skid tire.

    A 4 in 1 is a must for a backhoe too it does take some skill to use it at the start as with a backhoe you really can't see much over the hood.

    When I was running hoe I used the 4 in 1 alot of picking up rocks etc when I was loading old appliances into dumpsters the 4 in 1 worked good.

    A 4 in 1 bucket is like having a hydraulic thumb on a excavator it should be standard equipment.

    Don't know how we could get by without a 4 in 1. We opted for ours within a week of buying the machine, definately a must have.
