Advice on 3-point Backhoe, 7-foot dig BH6600

Hi, everyone.

I would like to hear your views regarding this back hoe. I am planning on purchasing it for my old Ford 1710 and wanted to know how reliable it is. I found this unit on Ebay ( http://www.ebay.com/itm/3-point-Back...item3a7a4075e0 ). Please let me know if you have had any experience using this unit and share how it handles.

Thanks!

I would not run a backhoe on that small of a machine without a subframe. All the stress placed on the machine from using a loader and 3 point backhoe goes on the transaxle and bellhousing and it's not unheard of for them to crack under the stress. If you can get a subframe mounted backhoe it will work better and you won't have to worry about breaking your machine in half.
