Moving dirt and mulch


I have a 220 feet deep property and it sits on 4 tiers (each about 50 feet or so) connected by short flights of steps....

i know I can get a specialty company to "blow" in mulch and top soil, but was wondering if there are any "conveyor belt" systems out there to move rocks and gravel...

My other alternative is of course wheel barrow and elbow grease ( not looking forward to it)...

And bob-cat is out of the question as the house paths and steps are too narrow...

any ideas?

Toro makes a small "personal' loader called the Dingo which can navigate through 36" wide areas. I'm sure that you can rent one... it's just a matter of finding a rental yard within your area that has one. You could also use what's known as a 'Georgia Buggy'. Used primarily for moving concrete, it's essentially a powered wheelbarrow.

That is the coolest little device... if it's not too expensive (and my wife will let me keep it in the car port), I'm getting one!!! Thanks.

See what Popular Mechanics Magazine has to say about the Dingo.

And ummmm, if the little woman won't let you keep it in the carport you're more than welcome to let it stay at my place

Or, you can buy yourself a lawn tractor with a trailer.
