and bought 2 Ditch Witch sk650s. All this talk about how good they were finally got me to buy a used one... then I ended up buying another used one a couple weeks later. I like the machines. I have 2 toro dingo tx525s and 1 dingo toro tx425. Now I am not going to be a toro dingo basher now, because they are damn good machines. I really haven't had too many problems out of them. The things I like about the Ditch Witch are: The ride platform is nicer. You stand a little higher which is nice. The machine is quieter than my tx525... I guess because of the turbo. It will pick up a little more weight. The hydraulic power seems to be about the same as the tx525 maybe a tiny bit more. It goes a little faster in reverse than the dingo, which is nice for harley raking. It seems to go a little faster forward too, but the specs say it is the same. I do think the dingo is a little more turf friendly because of the tracks and it weighs about 700lbs less and you can jump off the machine. I think the dingo is a little easier for a first time employee to operate. The ditch witch is pretty sensitive and has a little bit of a learning curve. Overall I like the ditch witch better. I would say it is about 10-15% more productive. As I thought, it doesn't BLOW a diesel dingo tx525 out of the water, but it is a little bit nicer machine.
