why is it....

Why is it that the smaller backhoes like kubota's and so on don't have a latch to latch the boom? Doesn't get really annoying to constantly having to raise the boom back up? I was just curious, because every picture that I see of an L35 always shows the boom sagging down a little, I see a hole in the bottom of the boom were I'd think a pin could go for the latch to latch onto and lock the boom upright.

You are right on the money about the hole in the boom. That is for a pin. I guess some are lazy about it... I believe the 110 from JD has a latch as their construction division builds the backhoe for it.
