    2300 hrs! Im not sure of the year. I bought this as a brithday present for my self on ebay. The best $3000 I ever spent! I was not planing to use it for snow but for $65 an hour sure it will be out there! I also was going to make work using existing hydro cylinders but it stuck out there way to far and it looked funny! I ended up torching it off the quick attach plate and cutting the a frame down again! Oh well!

    That's kick ass, great sidewalk machine hope it works good for you. I love to see the ingenuity on this site, it just goes to show, us plowboys will stick a blade on anything that moves, although I am still figuring out how to get a snow shovel strapped to the dog.:p

    Looks great. I rented a dingo a bunch of times this summer, was always wondering how it would do with a blade. Keep us posted!

    That thing looks like it'll work fine....keep us up to date...besides, I love the re-use of the meyer blade...it should be able to handle it at that size....lol...

    I saw the MT52 in action plowing snow and was not impressed. The tracks where like straping ice skates to it! Im going to check in on the chains that seems like a good idea to have just in case.

    Great idea. Just wondering, will that fit in a short box pick-up?

    Yes it is a side walk machine! I have a two man crew with a plow truck, 4x6 trailer, and the dingo to just run around and take care of walks and areas around the walks. It just might fit in a short bed pick up, it fits on a 4x6! I ran the dingo out in the gravel today i was just messing around, I think I want to run it for an hour on the first snow!
