    Anyone know of locations? I'll do it. I've probably only spent about 20 hours on a backhoe EVER, but I'll give it a shot. The backhoe end of the machine is cake, just switch over to joystick control running ISO and I'm set. I might get a little worked when using the loader, quite a bit different than a skid steer as far as visibility to the cutting edge goes, but I'm not too bad grading with a backhoe with the little experience I've had on one.

    From what I was told it is strictly the backhoe portion of the TLB. Otherwise I would not have a chance. The CASE backhoe can switch from ISO to SAE so pattern choice isn't an issue. If you contact your local CASE dealer they can tell you if they are sponsoring one. The one here is in June I think.

    I'll laugh if they make you run a 3 lever foot swing backhoe :)

    Minimax, you coming down? Dirtwater you should show up too. We should all do it in Auburn. I'm with you KSSS, I wouldn't have a chance in hell if there was loader skills involved, I could fake it, but I'd get owned.

    It is crazy what a new "hoe" costs. Yet they seem to sell like very well. The real purchase price is not that much but they are still over 100K.

    100k still doesnt seem right to me. My dad was going to get a new M series 2 last year fully loaded and that would of been around 73k. The only reason he didnt get one is we decided to buy another camp instead.
