    Its only good for you southern guys it has a open ROPs you try use that in the northern parts of the country you would either freeze to death or get soaking wet :nono:

    I bet the machine will end up selling cheap because it is a Ford and it is a open ROPS machine.

    Wimp! :laugh:

    Because there is a low breezeway between my garage and the rest of my property I couldn't get a cab on my Kubota L4630. The ROPS doesn't slow me down a bit. It warmed up to 20F today and I had a great time moving snow in the heat wave. Rain I don't like, but the solution for folks who can't handle a little chill is called Florida. :rolleyes:

    I actually prefer an open cab on Mini ex and Backhoes.
    It never really gets cold down here and when it rains we stay home.:clapping:

    Ford Backhoes have quite a following down here.
    There decent machines.

    That has to be one of the cleanest 14 year old piece of equipment I have ever seen.

    If I did not need so many other things I would consider it.
    Most Hoes for that price have tons of hours on them.

    Besides it has a Canvas enclosure.

    One thing that will hurt the sale of it is that is doesn't have a extendhoe.After having one,is like the front wheel assist you would hate to good without it.

    A person is always wishing for a little more reach!!!!!!!!!

    Nice clean machine,looks like it is a city machine,with good care.Plus having a shop to be put in really helps the paint on the machine for sure.
