spainmd: I'm thinking of buying a backhoe attachment for a skid steer (T300). For
light dirt work only tho, no asphalt. Have you any experience outside of
asphalt and what would your advice be? I really can't afford a backhoe
itself right now. Thanks friend!
spitgalore: With all this swaying & vibration, do you get dizzy? I know I do, just
watching the video. At the end of the day, when you return this vehicle
back to the storage yard, are you expected to wash it clean? Thanks for
Gasteraner: Yes i never drove a backhoe and i can t imagine that that would make sense
to me either
kimchiman1000: @spainmd If it's all you can afford, it will do a lot of jobs that you'd
use a backhoe for. Get the bigger model, instead of a 709, would be my
advice. Personally, I'd rather get a used mini excavator to use with a T
300, rather than that backhoe attachment, if it will fit in the budget; but
then you're getting into moving a second machine, etc. Of course if your
truck has a big enough deck, moving a T 300 and a mini hoe together are not
a real problem. Just my personal preference.
darensmiles4: I never ran a skid steer with the backhoe attachment but that must be a
pain in the ass to set up and move all the time. instead of pulling the
bucket up the stabilizers and pushing yourself.
