 Looking for Backhoe

I am in the market for a used backhoe, something along the lines of a Case CK or similar machine for use on my land. I am fairly competent as an operator, so control configuration really does not matter.

Primary use will be for clearing my land, digging stumps and occasional trenching. I had thought about a small dozer but decided against that due to the costly maintenance those can present.

Any thoughts as to a good source in or near New York State?

 Looking for Backhoe

I laughed when I saw the "competent operator" and "Case" and "configuration".

My backhoe was working so I was hired to operate another guy's Case to help him out. I tell him "oh yeah, I can run anything" which up until that day I had.

I fired myself after 15 minutes. I just could not get the hang of using foot pedals to swing the backhoe. I was never so frustrated and embarassed.

Have you tried eBay? There are plenty of deals I've seen from your neck of the woods.

Cutter,

Unless you're in a big hurry to get yourself a backhoe, you can't beat Proxibid live auctions.

Proxibid posts photos of the items offered at auction, and then allows you to bid live, while the auction is taking place, and all from the comfort of your own home.

I watched a 3-point backhoe sell for 1100 dollars recently, in Nebraska. However, there may be an auction near you in the near future.

See the link below.

I laughed when I read your post Earthworks! I learned on a Ford four-lever and progressed from there to about everything else possible, including the Davis 30+4 which as a laugh no matter who tried to run the thing.

Art, I wish I had known about that auction. I am not in a hurry but if I could get a few things done prior to winter I would be happy.

Price will be commensurate with the equipment condition. I don't want a piece of junk but something that could use some TLC is OK. Most likely I will sell it at some point down the road. Given the condition of my back I can't get into major, heavy restoration of this stuff.

I will check that link Joel, thank you.

 Looking for Backhoe

I found a place called Carroll's Equipment in Skaneateles, NY. They have more equipment for sale than you can imagine and claim the prices are wholesale.

After thinking about the pros and cons pertaining to backhoe vs mini, I have decided to look into a mini-excavator. I have rented one several times and they are great for light work and may work OK for my purpose but just be a bit slower with the progress. I don't really care about that aspect.

By browsing the inventory on-line, I have spotted about what I want. One machine that appears to be well appointed is the Mitsubishi. It is larger than the one I rented, a good thing. Prices range between 10-20k with most machines hovering around the 12k mark. Cat is another machine of interest. The Deere and Hitachi are the same machine, will take a look at all of them this weekend I hope.

Opinions relative to these machines welcome Smile

 Looking for Backhoe

I rented a 1998 New Holland 655E backhoe and could not believe the power it had. Used it like a dozer to grade 10,000 yards of clay piles. I had a rented Case 14,000 lb. machine on the same site and it was half as strong as the NH backhoe. But the excavator did have the ability to float on a pond's mucky bottom

What type of work are you doing?

 Looking for Backhoe

The work is kind of a mixed bag. I have several acres of overgrown field and scrub woods that I want to clear and eventually plant with evergreens. I have stumps to dig out and some grading to do. I may dig a pond at some point but that is still not a certainty.

Many of the trees are covered with vines that must be pulled away and dug out. I know the mini works well for this as the last time I rented I tried it. No doubt a backhoe would work well too.


Joel I tried that auction site and did find some goodies. I looked at them once before as well, but I am still confused as to where these machines are located. I could not find that information anywhere.
