It feels amazing when you can do big projects by yourself, especially if it’s building the home you’ve always dreamed of. Sometimes, these projects seem overwhelming at the start. But, if you have the right equipment, like a MAGNATRAC®, it can be a game changer!
This is exactly what happened to Scott, one of our customers. He bought a MAGNATRAC® MH8500, which is a perfect machine for farmers, ranchers, contractors and in Scott’s case, large property owners. This powerful machine didn’t just make things easier for Scott, it actually helped him make his dream of building his own retirement home come true!
Scott’s dream started with purchasing some property.
Scott owns about 10 acres, which is roughly equivalent to 7.5 football fields. He dreams of building the perfect house there to enjoy his retirement. Currently, he is handling some of the land management tasks, such as: cutting the trees, pulling logs, sawing the lumber and building a bridge.
Before Scott discovered the MAGNATRAC® MH8500, he faced some big challenges. Imagine trying to build a large Lego set, but not having the right pieces or instructions. That’s a bit like what Scott was dealing with. He needed big machines to help with the construction and land preparation, but these machines were hard to operate and expensive to rent, costing him thousands of dollars!
Scott had many ideas for his land, like clearing out trees, leveling the ground, and making paths. But to turn these ideas into reality, he realized he needed a better solution that would be effective in the long run. That’s where the MAGNATRAC® MH8500 came in.
The MAGNATRAC® MH8500 turned Scott’s dream into reality!
It’s a compact machine, but packed with LOTS of power.
Scott was really surprised by its strength. He said, “More powerful than I thought it would be for being a compact loader.”
With the MAGNATRAC®, Scott found he could do many tasks with ease. First, he cut down trees and chopped them into 12-foot lengths. Then, using the loader, he carried the logs to his wood mill. He also used the grapple to haul debris to the fire pit. He even built a bridge over the stream in his lower field.
Scott didn’t stop there! He dug footings, placed rebar cages into holes, and used the MAGNATRAC® to carry 80-pound bags of concrete over to the mixer. He set steel beams in place and transported planks from the mill, all without any trouble and without spending thousands of dollars on renting equipment.
The MAGNATRAC® MH8500 paid for itself, and is worth every penny!
Scott thinks getting the MAGNATRAC® MH8500 was a smart move. It might be a lesser known brand, but it’s extremely versatile, can work in tight spaces, and not many machines can dig like a MAGNATRAC®. He saved a lot of money by not paying someone else to do the work, or by renting huge machines. This means the MAGNATRAC® basically paid for itself over time. And the best part? Now he owns this cool machine for any other jobs he wants to do in the future, instead of having to rent equipment every time. He could even do small jobs on the side to earn extra income in retirement!
After seeing how great the MAGNATRAC® worked for him, Scott has some simple advice for anyone thinking about getting a MAGNATRAC® from Struck. He says, “It’s easy to operate. So many attachments for whatever your project is. Worth every penny!”
