Handyman Tool Tip: The Dingo
Host Paul Ryan shows how a dingo can be a handy tool when it comes to backyard projects.
This particular model is only 34" wide, which makes it easy to maneuver around the font and backyard, around gates, etc.
This impressive machine has only three basic controls:
- Movement control.
- Attachments control.
- The lever that raises and lowers the machine.
The vibratory plow is only one of more than 35 attachments for the dingo. Along with the basic machine, you can rent a trailer full of implements — including an auger, which can be used to dig holes. Other attachments include a till, backhoe, concrete breaker, stump grinder and buckets. It's easy to switch attachments. Simply drive up to the trailer, release one implement and attach another.
The rental price for a dingo is approximately $150.
