    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.

    Enjoy it Gasifier! Love the Woods hoe. Nice to see curved booms becoming the norm.

    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.
