    I could use that little 1.5 yard cement mixer truck but then I'd have to build a batch plant because the nearest one to me is 70 miles away
    Never try to tell me it can't be done

    Having that would be like having a self-propelled home concrete mixer. Not going to do that to my little Mini anytime soon. It's too much fun to drive!

    I can't imagine those conversions could be really practical, since the bulk of the total weight is on the rear tires and the Mini is front wheel driven!

    yep but you could always ditch the drive train for a rear tandem drive set up

    Yes that would work, but think of the work and engineering involved, better to just use a larger truck from the git go!

    OH look it is a puppy LOL.
    Above anything else those mini conversions are just plain cute. And I've seen places where something in that size range would be ideal for the situation

    Very cute but not a great application for front wheel drive?
