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.
