I have own this small backhoe almost two years now and have quite fun time with it... want share some to You.

Digging big hole and bury big stone:


Testing extra counter weight on My backhoe, quite good results:


Draining hard ground, lots stones and hard clay on bottom:

Do you grow any crops on the hard ground, or is it just for grazing.?

I remember Northern Tool used to offer them some 10 years ago. I dont think they sold very well as they were only for sale for a couple of years. I did a google search. It appears that Harbor Freight still carries them for $2699 USD. There are also some listed on ebay, yet it looks like people are relisting the Harbor Freight unit with a thousand dollar markup. So buyer beware. I think the reason that we americans didnt bother to buy these undersized machines is that most of us already have farm tractors. At 2699 it isnt that much more to get a implement to go on a tractor. So the towable implement may not get alot of traction here?

I firstly think buy backhoe that I can put on My tractor but it is not that handy than this backhoe is.
