    Machine is still young and I know you're very familiar with the care and feeding of F-series front-mounts!

    That one wouldn't fit in (or on) the bucket, so I'll never know if it was too heavy to pick up. :)
    Rolling rocks is ...... an interesting project.
    So is sliding the ones that won't roll.

    DSCF1924 (960x720).jpg DSCF1925 (960x720).jpg Here is mine pulling a stump. I just bought it used a few months ago. Kubota L3710 with 1200 hours on it. Factory Kubota loader and bucket, with a Woods sub frame mounted backhoe. Used it to plow snow three times. And now am going to work on some projects I have been wanting to do for a while. I am having some fun.

    Not as big as most of these but it pulls like an ox. I use the plow to push brush and big rounds around in the summer. It has a mowing deck and 4 foot snow blower as well.

    1978 Case 446. I own a website devoted to the brand at http://www.casecoltingersoll.com if anyone wants more info.

    A relative of mine uses an old Case rider on his 10 acre small farm. It does everything he needs it to. If it wasn't for the snow and the hay, I would just get an old Gibson (I've had several in the past...they were sold through Agway around here).

    Just got the quote for the engine kit for the FE-35...$800 not including the upper end. $300 for the valves and springs. $50 per injector for service. Not bad for a 54 year old diesel.

    The one Van Buren has is a John Deere on tracks.

    The boom of the backhoe is curved for better visibility from the seat, especially when working closer to the tractor. The first small backhoe attachments I saw using this design were the Deere 447/448. Huge improvement from the old 47/48 hoes and curved booms was one of the new features.
