    I didn't think it would be so, but I use my grapple, smooth bucket, backhoe, rotodarion, trencher, pallet forks, mulch bucket, tooth bucket,
    auger, in that order.

    You need a tooth bucket the size of your track with. A smooth bucket as big as the machine can handle for light materials and back dragging. A root grapple. (The root rake kind will give you a higher dump ability) and pallet forks will come in handy.

    The exact attachments listed above is what I have for my dingo 1000, plus an auger (12” and 24”). Also, I built my own concrete bucket which is nice for pouring piers. My tooth bucket is 42”, the width of the machine, I have a 60” blue diamond smooth bucket, my grapple i got from titan attachments (“toro rake”) and of course the ever so useful pallet forks.

    Congrats on the machine, you will find many uses for it you never thought of!

    The hole augers, you can get a concrete mixer attachment to go on the drive head. Soil conditioners also work really well.

    It really depends on what you do. If you do fences. Get the auger. Concrete get the mixer. Irrigation get the vplow what’s you number one service you intend to use the mini for?
