 Backhoe for Massey

I am a landscaper, and plan on buying a hoe in a couple of years, has anyone seen the new landpride hoes, they look awesome, any expierence and prices? MF makes (or at least sells a red one with MF on it) its own hoe for my tractor, any hands on exp.? I have used a compact hoe on a cub cadet i rented a few years ago and was very impressed at the amount of digging power for such a small hoe. I also want to put a jiffy baller on the end of my hoe (a small machine to selectively dig and pot small evergreen trees), anybody else use anything like this? Also, how would the subframe interact with my subframe on my fel, and can i still use all my regular imps? My hyd. flow rate is somewhere in the 6.5 gpm??? would i need a pto pump, and how much work is it to hook all this up and unhook from a backhoe to a power rake on the jobsite? My tractor is a mf1240 w/ 1446 fel... Any serious non offensive debates are completely welcome !!! Thanks in advance!#?

 Backhoe for Massey

I was visiting the local dealer yesterday while they were trying to mount an Ameriquip B/H to a Kubota B7800.

They were having serious problems getting the thing lined up and were in the process of having to move the 3 point hardware around to accommodate the installation.

The owner of the tractor was watching and got upset because he was going to have to move it all back anytime he wanted to take the hoe off and return to using his box scraper.

A Kubota B/H would have been a longer wait and a bit more money, but would have been much easier to install and remove.

You might be money (and time) ahead by going with the MF unit.

 Backhoe for Massey

The MF backhoe for your tractor is a fine piece of equipment. I have had one for about three years now and you wouldn't believe what I have dug through. It digs through very hard clay and flint rock very well. The sub-frame is made to attach to your MF mid loader mount. You will notice a hole below the loader on the mount on each side, that is where the sub-frame pins on. Those are the only two pin locations to attach the backhoe. The installation and removal will only take about 15 minutes after you get use to it.
