I have an old 1966 Ford 4500 w/ 753 hoe and 1 ton bucket. This thing is older than me. It runs and operates good but could use some tweeking. I am led to believe this machine is the first true "Backhoe", pardon the misnomer. The cab,loader, and hoe were all options back in the day. The machine has a 3-point hitch buried behind the hoe end. Can anybody provide more knowledge or history of these tractors?
