    Had a driver take a quick video during a recent haul away operation.

    Gehl 680, subcontractor truck. (our driver couldn't follow my instructions to take the video)

    We were hauling with two trucks, ours and a sub (shown) when our driver took the video he stood exactly where I told him not to, so you couldn't even tell what was going on, as soon as this trip got loaded the lights went out in the parking lot...would be nice to have a video showing our own truck, but whatever.

    Thanks, pretty efficient I think, heaping loads in 8 minutes...and its small enough to be able to clean the curb lines without worrying about taking the curbs out...

    It looked good enough. How many hauled loads did it take till you were done in that lot?

    Is that 90,000 square feet, roughly 2 acres?

    I really like that loader. My loader is much older but there's a big difference between the time it takes me to go from forward to reverse. It almost looks like that machine is hydrostatic.

    Sweet little loader. Our 244J has been great this year so far. I'm not sure if I'd want to go back to skid steers after running it.

    Need pics! haha. We may get one eventually. I heard all great things about them for snow, good size, power, traction etc.

    Skids are a PITA but quick at what they do for sure.

    Nice video!

    We run a 12' Daniels plow on it...never heard any complaints of pushing with it.

    The 244J plain kicks the piss out of any skid we've ever had for snow, except in HOA's with individual driveways. It pushes the 12 foot Arctic like nothing.

    We demo'd a 332E last winter and it couldn't hold a candle to this mini wheel loader. It struggled with a 12 foot Arctic that we borrowed for the demo from another contractor.

    How much can you pick up a loader like that for ? Used that is...I pay cash

    That is sweet and faster than any loader I have used or own.
