    we have the tx425 (tracked machine).
    most people do not realize how useful these machines are.

    I can't remeber the last time I used a wheel barrow. They are certainly awesome. One does the work of a few guys for sure. :usflag:

    Is that all you do, is work with the dingo and so forth? I'm into the whole lawn care side, but since I have college coming up next year I thought about just doing work like with a dingo, but I'm worried I won't make much. How do you advertise and all? Thanks

    Yeah but to a point... I mean if I have the mulch on my trailer and the stuff is going into the backyard, I can fork and barrow it back there a lot faster than that dingo crawls around sucking up fuel at amazing rates. I'll skip the 25 / hour machine charge just so I can earn what I'd like to get / hour.

    It is a cool machine, but it is limited in its applications and the shovel hardly holds about a barrow's worth... I am thinking when I'm ready to get something, I'll settle for a mini 4x4 tractor with a loader and maybe a backhoe, more so due to price than anything else.

    those dingos are cool looking, but for a real work saver go with the thomas 35dt, its got rubber tracks, and a 26hp diesel motor and it can do so much, its not even funny, #1 peice of equipment to buy, especially if you do brick patios or walkways and with the tracks, the thing hardly ever gets stuck, with the exception of 2ft feet of snow, then it get bottomed out.

    Looks Great! If you don't mind saying, what did the DINGO cost you?

    Thats awesome, I have a truck just like that but red and a 350. Drop down sides and all, they're awsome for loading pallets as im sure you realized the first day you bought yours (lol).

    I want to get a dingo or outright skidsteer. What made you get a dingo instead of a skid and how much if you dont mind me asking does a dingo cost?
