I have been thinking of buying one of those back hoe attachments for my compact tractor. Its a 35 horse john deere. I can get a nice used one that mounts on the frame with quicktach for 3500 bucks. We rent those little kubota excavator so much for digging odd retaining walls and stuff that I am thinking it would go be good money spent. Wondering if any of you guys have one and if there are any pros and cons to them. I know they arent near as versatile as using an excavator, but I figured I could save on the rental fees even if it takes me longer to use this. I have heard from many to never buy one that attaches to the three point, but other then that there isnt alot of info on them out there, and I am still wondering if a compact tractor is really built to use such a thing.
