I bough this in 2000 to do work around the kennel and cut the 2 1/2 acre field.
I also used this to dig out the foundation for my house addition/remodel. I have moved more dirt than I care to say and I also use this for snow removal around driveway, parking area, and kennel.
I am currently rebuilding the backhoe attachment as I broke a hyd cyl last year and thought I could use more reach and depth than stock so I built a new boom and dipper-stick and being kubota wanted $700 for 1 2" cylinder I bought 2 new 3" ones for just over $200 from Northern.
I will post some picture when complete, hopefully by summer...
