    I am working with the Toro Dealer financial lender/terms of loan now, on the purchase of a 2008 Toro Dingo TX525 powered by 25hp Kubota Diesel, grapple bucket, standard bucket, Brushwolf rotory mower, pallet forks, ride on-plate form. I should have the new Dingo next ,month maybe sooner. It's a labor saver, to say the least, and although the i do not prefer the 25hp Kohler, it was "struggling" at times lifting. I do think the TX425 gasburner had plenty of power, but lacks the low end torque/grunt of a diesel. In the mean time I am renting the Dingo it's amazing.

    they are nice machines. i think you could've saved some money on that job by not using it, seems a little overkill. i would be spending my cash on something more useful like a dump trailer, cause now you have twice as much labor unloadng the branches. thats just my opinion, but good luck with it, i'm glad to hear you ordered a platform, i hate the units without them.

    That was only one tree of the 5 tree's I cut that day, look close no physical labor required unloading with my trailers, I use a pallet & 13,500 vertical lift strap set-up work's great to pull the loads off the trailers with a wheeled loader at the recycle center , cost effective using this method of 7years now. I did not pull the tree's down with the truck, just used it to "pull" the tree's were I want them to fell, extra security. I try to work smarter not harder, getting older now, and I like to spend money to make money.

    I must say that was nice looking tree with all those blossoms. I can't really see how it was positioned on the property so i may have been in a bad spot.
