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.
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.

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.
Gasteraner: Yes i never drove a backhoe and i can t imagine that that would make sense to me either
