Some people may not agree with me but a backhoe is the slowest most useless piece of equipment. The only thing they are good for is municipality work so they can be driven on the road.

Oh and I'm not positive but I dont think that little of a tractor would lift full pallets of block or pavers.

Do you own it now, if so then why not use it and tell us how it works. If you are buying it for lifting pallets and excavating for hardscape jobs then I'd tell you to click on the "construction" site of kubota and check out their excavators.

It only has 2767 lbs of lift at the pin, maybe half pallets.

I wish there was a like feature for scagrider's comment on backhoes

The combination of an excavator and skidsteer is ideal

Definitly not big enough to move pallets of block.

i like their excavators but i was hoping if it could lift pallets then it would save buying a mini ex and skid steer
