    Thanks for all the info so far. I was wondering if anyone has used one for shoveling sidewalks in the winter. Can they push the snow or do they slide all over?

    Tried the ramrod today the 900 model nice machine sales guy say he can sell me a demo<br>for 10% less than cost. By doing my homework I conclude all these machines are about the same Dingo,ramrod,kanga, What I'm interested in now is trying out the kanga kid now comes with a 13hp motor electric start lifting capicity 220lbs attachments 12&quot; auger, bucket, plow I believe thats all for attachments so your limited. Small machine also small $$ to pay at $7000 I'm having hard time trying to find a dealer here in southwest florida one dealer down here has a full size kanga and thats it.

    Demo'd the Toro and the Kanga at the Expo in KY. The Ramrod is identical to the Toro. I'd go with a Kanga. They seem to be better constructed by far.

    Yes, i own 2 and love them. Had to replace the engines in them and upgraded the hp while i was at it. But they replace 4 guys with a shovel and dont ***** when beeung told to get to work. They get into backyards with ease

    15k is totally worth it, although you should be able to find one for less. I paid 10,500 for my 10 year old one and its equivalent to 4 gus with a shovel. It ahows yp to work daily, doesnt ***** or wine or need fed. The engine on both of mine went out but for what these machines can do its worth the cost. Try buying a new diesel one starting @40k
