 BX22 - Awesome digging power

Just to let everyone out there know, the BX22 has great digging power. I just finished digging a 3 by 6 feet wide by 4 feet deep hole in the worst soil I have ever seen. It was in an old parking lot that was torn up and covered with 2 feet of blacktop chunks, big rocks, bricks and what ever. The BX22 handled without no problem. For the past 7 years I've run a JD855 with a hoe but the BX outperforms that by miles. This is the first real test I've given my BX since getting it 2 months ago. Can't wait till I dig some more!

Yes, I have just the hoe that came on the BX22 with a 10 inch bucket. Greanted the smaller bucket gives more digging power, but the JD I been using only has a 13 inch bucket.

 BX22 - Awesome digging power

I just got my BX-22 a week ago and I'm VERY pleased with the digging capacity. I live on 5 acres and purchased the BX-22 to do dirt work around my pond. I handles rocks, boulders and dirt like much bigger machines.

 BX22 - Awesome digging power

I was wondering if you can store the BX22 in a box/Car trailer and what size I would need. Sort of taking care of storage and traveling at the same time. Also will I be able to remove the backhoe while in the trailer and leave it there. I know that you can't take off the mower in the trailer(nowhere to push it) so that stays in the garage.

I don't think so. Fully assembled it is 14 feet long and with the B/H stabilizers down it is 8 feet wide.

Another thing.... it wouldn't be much fun to be in an enclosed trailer with the engine running while hooking up the back hoe.

 BX22 - Awesome digging power

My trucks haven't seen the inside of the garage in over a year, but the BX22 has! When we move south I'm planning on putting up a building, I've already put a down payment on a 35 X 56 X 15 foot metal building. that should be enough room for all of the equipment and my shop so my wife can have the house back! I'm still amazed at the digging power this little machine has!

 BX22 - Awesome digging power

well, I seen my BX22 at the dealer on saturday(to be delivered monday) and I hope that I am not being riped-off. It appears that it may have been the floor model,the piant appeared slightly faded compared to the obviously new (spotless)models there. It also had 2 hours on it and all the others there had 1 hour on them ,the stabilizer feet had the paint knocked off, 3 point hitch was still in the box on the backhoe and was clearly rained on the staples were rusty. There was condensation in the headlight and the black plastic part of the dash appeared to be scratched as if a tag had been attached and was blowing in the wind for some time.
I brought all the books home and going through them they all looked new except for 2 of them that were so obviously used they grease and dirt and finger prints all over them. The 2 books were for the front hydraulic blade and the male quick hitch and subframe. I didn't see the front blade at the dealer.
The original quote I got for the BX22/bar tires/4way valve/12" bucket/60"mower was $16,873. Then i decided to get the front plow BX2763/BX2751 and the tiller B40C, bumping it up to $19,839, plus tax and fees 21,029.34. I certainly thought I was buying all new equipment. I suppose I have 3 days to cancel.
Can anyone tell me if I am just being "knit-picky" or if at $21,000 my concerns are justified.
