I'm working on a project with my son in law to dig out and level a pad for a patio from a sloped area. A retaining wall will be built where we dig into the slope. It is extremely hard clay, by extremely hard, we were using a tiller to dig in and shovel into a wheelbarrow. I can't take the 2032r, it won't fit through the gate. If a Dingo can dig, we'd be able to dig and move dirt. If we go the mini-ex route, we still have to deal with the dirt. I would say that the 2032r with the tooth bar would dig it, although it might be a little slow for reference. The Dingo that we are looking to rent does not have a tooth bar.
Does anyone have any experience with one of these? Sorry, no pictures yet, I was so tired from digging by hand for 6 hours last weekend that I forgot to take any.
