    Just hit me. The transmissions on our DR and MT look the same. Wouldn't be surprised to learn they are the same in every way. Could be same Chinese factory. Maybe belt pulley ratios are different. The Dr has four forward gears. MT has three forward. There might be a fourth forward gear within the MT that is made unavailable by the shift linkage assembly.

    I use 4x8 white sheets of plastic as well as some 4x4 white sheets. Have found plywood and black duramats to choke out and damage the grass if laying on top of lawn in hotter temps . The white is way more forgiving.

    Might wanna invest in an oil sucker for oil changes on your muck truck and other hard to drain equipment .I have a handful of equipment that it's easier to use a sucker then deal with the mess.

    I'm trying to reign in the amount of equipment and trailers I take to the jobs and get the most out of the least per say. All without having to kill myself labor wise. Running an excavator and Dingo costs more to move dirt then an excavator or Dingo loading into a Muck Truck or Dr wagon.

    1/4" polycarbonate from my local plastics supplier. At the time it was $100 a sheet as is pretty much unbreakable unless you are using them in freezing condition at which time it can become brittle and shatter if flexed too much. My supplier was Laird plastics in Md. Upfront cost is more than plywood but doesn't really degrade with use and is easier to manhandle and drag around to put in place.

    I'm a small company compared to some of you guys so I stock 6 4x8 sheets and 6 4x4 sheets on my trailer at all times. I don't need 30/40 sheets like you bigger guys.

    They stack nicely up against the wall of the trailer.

    Personally, I am considering going to nothing but battery powered equipment. Anybody have any experience with the Overland Electric Wheelbarrow with Duel Tires?

    Check out renting a georgia buggy from a rental shop. Usually have 16 cu ft hopper and hydraulic dump. Not always 4wd unless you count the 2 sets of duals that drive without the steer axle driving. These are usually readily available at a good rate. Toro makes one now that would be easy to get parts for since any Toro dealer can get you parts. I believe that it has the honda engine in it too
