    Got this this week. I bought the backhoe attachment last year with the intent of mounting it on my maxi sneaker but i decided it would be better to have the right machine. also there are countless other attachments available. I was quite impressed with its capabilities.

    Not the 410 but for my maxi. They are ok for a side walk but for a driveway I use my missile. That's one of the reasons I bought the backhoe. For the missile you need to dig a launch hole that is about 5' long and 30" deep. I am doing one tomorrow that has to go under the driveway and a privet hedge into the ladys yard. The new bobcat will fit right through her 48" gate. Should be sweet.
