Back in the day, nothing was cooler than the Terminator tanks from the future. They rolled over the battlefield crushing humans and playground equipment (and whatever else found itself before the might of their tracked badness). Now you can drive one around your yard — sort of. Yeah, we know it’s supposed to be for Earthworks and construction, but admit it: You want to drive the Dingo.
Is that some kind of sexual reference?
For those of you who want to do something useful with the Dingo, you’ll want to know that it features a dual track design and a hydraulic arm that can help with all manner of tasks that involve scooping and/or lifting. The unit can be fixed with a ride behind platform to eliminate walking – because who wants to walk behind their
tank utility loader. It boasts a gross weight of 1880 lbs. and an operating weight capacity of 500 lbs. as well as a tipping capacity of 1530 lbs. and a top bucket height of 66 inches.
What does this all mean? It means two of these things could tip over your buddy’s truck.
Sadly, there are no guns or rockets. So much for blowing things up. Then again, anything with tracks that looks this cool simply cannot be bad. They ought to put a label on the side that reads: Warning: “Extreme Guy Toy. Stand Clear.”
Normally we would give you a Froogle price search to check out, but buying one of these is a bit more like buying a car, so pricing may vary. Expect to shell out a couple grand.
