 Considering TC40D w FEL and backhoe - why not used backhoe

Folks,
I have found the discussion here very useful. I am close to purchasing a TC40D Hydro, SS, FEL and I would also like a backhoe as well. Now when I think about it, the FEL is about $3K, Backhoe, $7K, why not buy a used Case 580 backhoe for about $10K. Wouldn't it save wear and tear on the tractor and be better at those tasks anyways? Would appreciate the thoughts of the informed.
Larry

What then would you use the TC for? Mowing?

Mark,
Fair point. Mowing, grading, post hole digging, pulling trailer I guess.

A dedicated hoe and loader probably would be better at digging than tractor mounted attachments. The costs and time of maintaining an entire second machine should be added on to purchase price, which could be a bunch for a used hoe.

If the need for a hoe is occasional and light duty, a less expensive 3ph hoe might be considered with due consideration for the possibility of damage to the tractor.

I have played with the idea a few times and the idea of a small track hoe rather than the backhoe attachment. The trouble is that you end up with too much equipment to maintain. It can take you all day just to change the oil in all of it.

 Considering TC40D w FEL and backhoe - why not used backhoe

The other day a fellow cam in that had bought a tlb compact from us. He was looking for a way to move dirt further then or more than a bucket at a time was feasiable for him. Sold him a street use dump trailer so he wouldn't need to hire a dump truck to haul from the quarry when he needs a ton or two of stone. The trailer sold to him has ramps so it will also haul the compact in the box so it serves two potential uses. His 3/4 ton 4/4 pickup pulls it just fine. We did address another tractor on his property but decided to try this to help pull it together at a lower cost and more use out of his truck.

These "cheap" backhoes show up, but I have always stayed away from them. I don't need a maintenance headache. A well used backhoe that you can get for $10K is likely to be just that sort of headache.

I bought a new TC45 with the 758C backhoe. I maintain both, but neither get abused. I know 100% of the history.

A 7.5' hoe is pretty big for a compact and that sounds like very good advice.

A used second machine can come in handy and you can sell it for close to what you paid when you're done with it. I have a TC24D HST for mowing, ditch work, etc. I have a Kubota B2910 with FEL & backhoe for bigger stuff. Some tasks it comes in handy to have 2 machines on site. A TC40 is too big if you pick up a Case combo unit, consider a 24 or similar for the lighter work.
