    looking for something else yesterday and ran across these picts from a job I did back in 2002. It was my first time with a mini, and I got to use the excavator attachment. Definitely not as powerful as a mini-ex, but it sure was fun.

    tracked would have been great, this was a 322 or 222 and did get stuck, luckily with the arm on i was able to push myself back out of the mud.

    i have not used the excavator attachment yet. I have been wondering how strong they are, and if they were worth the almost $10K price tag.

    looks good, need one for my dingo. i have a 222 wheeled unit and have rented a tracked unit. would not trade my wheeled unit for a track. the wheeled model is much more useful and visibility out front is 100% better than the track model.

    How did that machine do with those stumps? Did it hesitate? What engine do or did that have in it?

    I am not trying to be a jerk BUT a tracked Dingo with a 4-1 bucket would be able to rip those stumps out that are pictured a lot quicker than with the combo you used. Also for grading and the last picture and removing the debris.

    It would only cost about $2500 versus the close to $10K

    Now if you were digging trenches that would be a different story.

    Nice pictures of work though.

    What do you think of the dingo? Can it lift a full bucket to maxium reach without being tippy?
