8n backhoe?

Has anyone had a backhoe on an 8n? I may buy a 1952 8n and would like to put one on if possible. It already has a loader and a backblade. Also any idea on the value of this tractor? Thanks, KD

Unless you got a really good deal on both, you'd be better off and have something that could really perform by buying a regular used hoe off craigslist. I've seen some nice hoes from the 1970s and 80s for under $10,000. You'll be spending about half that at least and will likely be breaking things as I don't believe these have the subframes on them intended for backhoe attachments. Not knocking the Ford N series, just saying that there are better choices out there for a backhoe.

No I did'nt, thanks for asking. I am going to have to wait a while for $$$ reasons! At least I can take my time and wait for a good deal to come along. Happy new year! Ken

I've sure seen some great deals around here, but same thing for me at this time, no money! Happy New years to you too!

IMHO, loaders and backhoes are not the greatest for the N ..
