hahahaha i hate to say this but the company that im currently employeed at has a ditchwitch xt850 and i have used it countless times and every time i use it i get off and do it by hand in my opinion this is the worst machine ditchwitch came out with and dingos i have used which are very little but still i have i didnt enjoy at all and would prolly do it by hand however that for diging and raking but i will not carry rocks pallets trees and anything else more then my body wieght or in a multiple of two by hand i will use a machine so i can see where you are coming from and my advice is to hang in there

And where do you come off thinking your tush is sexy or little?:laugh:
But I have rented the dingo and couldn't be happier with it. I used the wheeled version. Great for mulch and many other simple tasks, but it makes your body last a lot longer.

I know what you mean, we got the backhoe attachment for our, the only problem with the 850 that I could imagine is manuavability. that's a lot of weight and I'd imagine it would surely slow the machine down. the big brother xtXXX whatever is awesome looking, if i was a utility contractor I'd have one in a heart beat.

also... duramax is that vermeer the diesel one or the gas? I demoed the gas one but the dealer couldn't/wouldnt get me a diesel. if so how do you like it?

I love boxer's walk behind.. I hate bobcats freakn walk behind!! and I have never ran vermeer's or ditch witch in fact I have never seen one, but anyways.. whats goin on with the arms on that vermeer? the bucket seems to big so the loader isnt going all the way down. am i correct?



I just went to ditch witch's website.. and holy crap you dont want a walk behind he wants a freakn backhoe! haha I would love to have one of those! I really like how the boom on the backhoe slides back and forth. the only problem I see is not being able to see the edge of the bucket so it might be hard to grade with But I really like those things.. I got one question picasso.. why do you need one of those? the backhoe isnt big enough to load a fullsize dump.

I have the mt-52 it's a great machine. Much nicer than the dingo and a diesel too.
I dont like the bobcat walkbehind because it is slow, the standing pad thing is horribly designed, I dont like the controls, and it is just hard to grade with... and yeah you can get a boxer with a diesel in it.. I have never ran a diesel boxer but I like them alot..

oh come on what a dumb reply, how the f do you dig up and expose a underground 12'' pump line with a auger? i know what a auger is for and if i needed to dig a perfect strait circular hole i would use a auger but im not digging shat like that.
