if you've only ever seen a CAT hoe in action then you really shouldn't say its the best out there, CASE bar none has the best backhoes on the market...i don't care if your a cat, deere, new holland, jcb, whatever fan, case invented the backhoe and it shows
Now I never said it was the best, I said it was the cats ass, as in nice, not the best. Thats the only backhoe I've ever really ran.. From what I've seen Case is by far the best backhoe out there, thats all I've seen for backhoes up here in Illinois...

Well I have seen the inside of the takeuchi enough this week

I've bounced my jolly rear off enough this week in it already

All day monday I spent hauling stumps nad brush to the burn piles. Look at the size of those stumps.... only a takkie could do that






Then today I went over to the neighbors house and did some "clean up work" meaning I pushed all his "sh*t" into a big pile. My oh my look at the crap





then I dug a little pond for him




I look forwars to playing in a 12 acre swamp the rest of the week in the volvo now

Yeah thats the one, I only moved proably 250 -300 yards of dirt, I could have done it all with the takkie but I would have been there for about 5 hours, maybe a little less If I was steady at it.

I'm just digging a trench about 10' wide and 5' deep through the center to help drain the land. Dang beavers are killing all the mans timber.

That big job.... hurry up and wait, it may be two years before anything else happens. Like everything else, money is the problem.
