    Never seen one of these before!

    That was at whitneyville ? Must have been the old home days? I have never been able to get there because I am too busy working at that time of the year

    Looking At A Career Change Again

    I kind of think about the feed driving as long as it's not too big of a pay difference when it comes to buying the groceries you will have a little more time with the family while the kids are young? Money is not everything to me (otherwise I wouldn't be Dairy farming)

    Skid steer backhoe attachment

    I have had both. I rented out my mind mini excavator to make it pencil out. I can run out of 10,250 lb mini for $200 day so unless you have much to do with it it's way cheaper to rent

    Skid steer backhoe attachment

    MTO for $3K you can rent a miniX for a loooooooong time and it will do ten times the work in the same time and can have a 4 or maybe even 6 way blade on it

    Skid steer backhoe attachment

    I had that backhoe on our first 1840. Plenty of hyd capacity. It will be a wise idea to put flow restrictors on the swing cylinder because it's flies from left to right

    Skid steer backhoe attachment

    The one I had served it's purpose ok only because I needed to dig a water line in the bottom of the bank barn. This was low enough as a miniX wouldn't have been too high. When digging full depth it takes 110% of the reach on both sides to get rid of the dirt . This makes it a pain in the rear end as it is easy to knock dirt in the ditch during installation of the water line. I traded in mine on Sept 11th '01 on bobcat 325 that I added 2,900 hours to the meter

    Factory top links ?

    We have four or five cat 3 66 series. One cat 2 more than likely from one of the 856 we had years ago
