    <font color=blue>I was considering an L2910/L3010</font color=blue>

    I have the L3010 specs in front of me here. If you put an LA481 loader on it, you'll have a maximum lift height of 97.2", with a dump clearance of 76.4". That's getting up there pretty good, but I have no idea how tall dump trucks are.

    No point in cutting it close, so I'd go with the ramp idea anyway. Sounds like a fun tractor project in itself. Also, if you don't have a tractor yet, do I assume you're a little low on experience? If that's the case, better plan on getting some good practice hours in before you play it that close to somebody else's vehicle. An L3010 with HST should handle pretty nicely, but if you're unfamiliar with all that hydraulic coordination, it would be pretty easy to do the wrong thing at just the wrong moment.

    Keep in mind, of course, that I'm a newbie myself and I might be assuming that everybody's as spastic as I was when they're low on the learning curve. Come to think of it, I'm still pretty low on that curve. [img]/w3tcompact/icons/crazy.gif[/img]

    Mike, the lift and dump height on the B2910 should be the same as my B2710 which is 83.9" max. lift height, 65.5" clearance with bucket dumped. I don't think that'll load most dump trucks without the ramps mentioned by others.

    My friend and I loaded 300 tons of dirt into his 10 ton capacity dump truck 3 weeks ago. It was an International single axle to give you an idea. I did not have a problem with my L3010. He used his Bobcat and had more reach than me though. I would not have been able to do it with my old B series. The sides were too high.

    I doubt I could reach up a Tri-axle but I have 220 tons of lime coming tomorrow in tri and quad-axles and I will see what it looks like just for kicks. I don't think my little L would reach without a ramp though on a dump that big.

    I am loading our manure in our farmer-neighbors big ol' spreader now this week. We have done five loads so far. I give the stuff to him and he spreads it on his bean fields. Gets it out of my hair. Some of our friends actually pay to have their manure removed by refuse companies.

    We have 11 acres, but only two horses at the moment. However, we inherited an unbelievably large manure pile, from the previous owner, when we moved in. And, so I must agree with cowboydoc, that sufficient acreage/horse is important.
    Regarding the straw: my wife and I have used straw at other points in time, but the amount of waste is probably 10 times the amount produced using wood shavings (we use shaving rakes to sift the shavings, as opposed to pitch forks).
    So, if you decide to keep your manure and spread it yourself, I'd imagine wood shavings would be more manageable and require less work in the stall, than would straw.
    In addition, we move our manure from the temporary pile, outside the barn, to a larger, more permanent pile that allows us to constantly turn the compost and therefore speed up decomposition of the wood.

    Thanks for the pictures - I noticed many things that would be a fine addition to my JD (fire extinguisher).
