Deere 310SG

It's time for a backhoe, id like to have it for this winter incase we get any snow. Before i get a salesman on my case, Id like to find out how much it's going to cost me.. No fancy couplers, just a 12ft pusher box. Any input would be appreciated.

Depends on what options you want on it.Standard stick or extend able?,do you want wobble stick or pilot controls?

Another question I have is do you really need the backhoe?,if your just doing plowing then look at a skid steer.A used deere 310SG is gonna run you $45-60,000

You'll be looking at around a grand or 2 per month in payments.

If it's used with decent hours (no more than 3-4,000), you're going to pay at least $40K. Not sure if you're looking a new or...? New backhoes are in the $90K range, kinda ridiculous.

Mainly snow removal, but i do lot of trenching for my friends electric business now.. Have used a skid alot in the past, just a lil too small for my applications. Id like to go with pilots, im used to my dads Deere 200 Excavator. I really just need a machine that can do a little bit of everything.. Id really like to go new, seeing as i will have it for the next 20 years or more hopefully..

You're going to be talking almost 100K new. What are you going to tow or move it with?

Nobody knows your situation like you, but unless you have a lot of money to kill It doesn't appear to make a lot of sense to buy a new hoe to push snow and dig utilities for one electrical company. I am sure your local Deere salesman will be happy to get you into an SG regardless of what your business plan is.
