    Will your dingo lift and move a pallet of sod around the yard. I know the tipping cap. is about 1500#. What is it physically capable of lifting.

    no way, maybe with a thousand pounds of weight strapped to its rear end, even than i dont think the hydraulics will handle it. if ur looking to actually move this stuff and possibly load it onto a flatbed or truck than what you need is a 82 horse CAT 279C with a fork attachment.

    with the kubota's just take the model of the loader and multiply by 2. that gives you an estimate of what it will lift. LA 514 = 1028, LA 724 = 1448. thats just an estimate but it does get you close. that is also with rear ballast.

    The 3 point hitch on a 3540 will lift 2700 lbs. @ 24" behind the lift arms! Buy a set of rear forks and you will be in business.
