Well here it is. Got lucky and finally found the 750 backhoe attachment ive been looking for for 5 yrs. I bought a Ford 3400 back then with the hopes of finding the backhoe attachment. Never thought it would be this hard to find but it was.. Found a few complete machines but no one willing to split off the hoe - understanable. So just as I was about to sell my 3400 and possibly buy a complete machine with the hoe - look what popped up on good old eBay. This 3400/loader/backhoe with a blown motor. The seller wanted about as much for just the hoe as for the whole machine so now i have a bunch of spare parts. This hoe has some cosmetic issues but looks mostly solid so I'm excited to get to work. One problem is the seller painted this machine Ford blue which is incorrect for a 1970 machine so that will need to be corrected. Question here is whether to paint now or attachand use on some yard projects first.... Still thinking... anyway enjoy some before pics and be looking for some after... Chris

Thanks Kirk, yes I see that the blue rims and tires are more designed for the backhoe load then my ag tires. Looks like they have tubes also. The ROP is definitely aftermarket and hope never to test its ability to protect me in a rollover :shock: I will let you know about parts left over. Thanks, Chris
