Hey everybody, just looking for some opinions on a skidsteer backhoe attachment. Before I start, I know it isn't gonna hold a match to a mini ex, but a mini ex isn't in the cards right now. The story is it's a 2002 bobcat 709 backhoe attachment that has never been used. It's on tender as surplus equipment from a municipality that I work for, its in brand new condition (I've been keeping an eye on it for the past 5 years). I researched the specs and it seems to be a capable piece, and can be carried by my skidsteer (just barely). I do realize the PITA of having to switch seats to move the machine, but right now my options are renting equipment or using shovels . . .
