So tell me, what makes one suddenly think they need a dump truck? Am I going to wake up one morning and realize I need one?
'cause
sounds reasonable to me
My wife isn't quite on board with that level of reasoning. But, she usually accepts it if the item does not invade her area.

I think every male thinks he needs 1. a bull dozer, 2. a dump truck. I had to settle for 3. a loader.

Skid steers are pretty cool. I've never used one, but they seem pretty bouncy.

They can be with the short wheel base. The larger models are better but less maneuverable in tight spaces. Once you own one you'll wonder how you ever managed without it. I've been using one forever. First one we had on the farm was 1970 and we have worn out about 25 of them. usually keep two at a time. We have a much bigger newer model we keep at the farm. Mine doubles as a disabled Cougar mover and one of the best engine hoist money can by.
