Handy little machine
« on: October 06, 2018, 08:49:29 AM »
Brought this home from the day job to use around the mill and OMG, what a joy...I just have forks and a bucket but sooo much easier than my Kubota fel... does a 180 in the length of itself, can move pallets in and out of the tightest spots and can lift suprisingly big logs,,

Just be very careful not to raise too high and tilt too far back.... don't want to roll a log back on yourself.

If that thing can load itself in the back of my F350 maybe I'll get one.

Id bet itd back up a set of heavy ramps into a pickup.  

I checked over a bobcat brand mini skidsteer for a buddy that he did end up buying, $10k used.  Hes a mason and it lifts some impressive boulders, goes through a backyard gate easy, no climbing over the bucket.  

Theyre pretty robust yet fairly simple.  It reminded me a lesco zero turn that someone put a loader and tracks on.  Same components really.

I have a boxer 320. Similar idea. Amazing buggy around the mill. Weighs 2000 lbs. And it's on the small end of mini skids. Yes you can def load it in the back of a truck. Good ramps secured to the truck are a must. And take the tail gate off...

I saw several different makes of them Friday at the Paul Bunyan Show in Cambridge. One had a grapple with a hydraulic chainsaw. The operator cut a cookie off one end close to the grapple while the other 8 was hanging out the other side of the grapple. That set up could be handy at times.

It surely could get into a pickup, like mentioned above take off the tailgate, this one weighs a little over 3k, the work setup it goes in a 7ft x 14 ft 7k dump trailer with 4 tons of sand towed behind a 12k diesel service truck, keeps it under cdl (cuz you can`t hire a guy with a cdl these days!) It does a 180 in the trailer, goes thru gates, under tree branches, pretty much took the words "shovel" abd "wheelbarrow" out of the vocabulary, digs impressively also... have I mentioned I really like this thing?
