Kleinchris,

I can't exactly tell from the angle of the picture, but it sure looks like the cable puller used by my local electrician.

I found that photo on an ag site. I'm thinking a manure scoop for tight barns.

It looks similar to a sod roll unroller I saw being used for the big rolls of sod, like three ft. wide and three ft. in diamater when they unload them from the truck. Just a guess. Frank.

It's a self-loader dumper. They're very popular in Japan for rice patty operation (without the dumper of course), in undergound excavating like when shoring up a building.

They're becoming sort of popular here replacing the very small bobcats for demolition and the old standby--a wheel barrow. Some cement companies use them to tote concrete.

My buddy doesn't use these for building demotlion and asbestos removal, but he does use two or three small bobcats per floor to get the job done in a fraction of the time it takes with only hand labor. The bobcats are small enough to fit through a doorway, and light enough that they won't fall through the floor.

You can find these machines without the dump body, with a backhoe, tree spade, or even a flat bed to customize yourself. Some are made to ride on. Some of the bigger dump machines can hold 15,000 lb.

I think I could use one to help with trail buildig- I have about 6 miles to maintain and havent found the ideal way of doing it yet. However, it also looks pretty slow, and the Nascar #80 on the side doesnt really make it look any faster. It is a pretty cool looking little rig.

klienchris and EW get the prize this morning!!

It's a self-loading tracked dump buggy.

The scoop out front is a small FEL that lifts the product to be dealt with, in this case mostly aimed at mucking out barns, into the dump box then the whole affair crawls along to where you want it and dumps itself out for you.

Pretty spendy for what it is, and just try working a FEL you cant see (because it's in front of the box) but in some areas (mostly Asia & Europe) they're really popular.

Jonsered, the Swedish company that basically invented the modern chainsaw, used to make a nifty machine sort of like this they called the "Iron Horse" (translated from Swedish) but the neat twist on it was that you steered it (throttle too) by means of a fold down handle out the back, sort of like a pallet truck, and the box was part of a system, it could roll off, or dump, or be replaced by small log bunks. This meant a single person could go out in the woods, in Scandanavia usually in the winter on skiis, and walk or get pulled on skiis along behind it, load it with wood and go home.

Best of luck.

About 20-40 years ago in my area south and north of Detroit and even in downtown Detroit, the local municipalities had 5-8 yard dump trucks with self-loader 1-1/2 to 2-yd buckets on them. From time to time you'll see them for sale around here.

Chris, for trail building you might want to consider a walk- or ride-behind rubber-tracked skid steer equipped with a dozer blade (a.k.a. "compact skid steer"Wink yeah right. Ditch Witch makes a nice unit as does Vermeer and Toro to name a few. I've seen the Ditch Witch brand being used to clean up downed trees from hurricane Katrina and couldn't believe the power and traction it had. And you can generally use any of the 200-plus attachments available for any of the compacts.
