 Bucket size

I was told by a dealer today that he had a bradco 7500 backhoe he would sell me for 4,950 for my NH1725. I am new at this but I have never heard of this model of bradco but he said it was the same as the woods 7500 which is made by Bradco? Could it be possible maybe I was talking to the wrong person like maybe a janitor or somthing. Also would the woods 7500 be a good hoe for the NH 1725 I am planing on getting the frame attachment but I canot figure what bucket size to go with? I plan on trenching and stump removal and possibly digging out (repairing) ponds. My soil is mostly clay and rock. What kind of performance can I expect out of this combo? I know this was alot of questions and I do apreciate any adviceMarkD

I don't know if you are talking to the janitor or not, but Bradco is a line of high end backhoes. For years they have been a brand that a contractor would buy, but were more than a compact tractor owner wanted or needed. Bradcos are heavily built and high priced. I have no idea if they make the Woods....or if they do, if it is made to the same standard as the rest of the Bradco line. For all I know, Bradco may be making several different weight of backhoe today. All of the older Bradcos that I have seen were painted black and are clearly built of heavier metal than homeowner hoes. They are popular as skid-loader attachments. I very much agree with the frame mount. For bucket size I'd recommend a 12 inch if you have any rocks or stumps. Maybe a 15" if you just cannot talk yourself into the smaller bucket. No larger.

Dear Mark, BRADCO is a division of Attachment Technologies Incorporated and they do indeed manufacture high end backhoes. There is no such model number in the BRADCO/McMillen line as a 7500, rather this is Woods Manufacturing's Groundbreaker 7500, 7.5ft backhoe attachment. There is no comparison between the closest BRADCO model, the 408 (8ft), and the Woods 7500. The BRADCO has superior crowd and bucket force when compared to the Woods. The BRADCO also has a better hydraulic system and heavier gauge steel with all major stress points heavily reinforced. Where the Woods uses its open and vulnerable chain swing mechanisim to provide boom swing, BRADCO provides two robust hydraulic cylinders. What is better for you? Hard to say, however I will tell you that I have the Cub Cadet early model 407 hoe with sub-frame on my 7275 and I've just dug out my 181st stump. BIG STUMPS (24 inch caliper to 36 inch being my biggest) for a small machine. The little Woods, equivalent to today's 7500 Groundbreaker, just keeps on ticking. I use the 18 inch bucket with side cutting plates kept sharp to cut roots. Don't expect it to be an excavator! If you dig a four sided box around the stump, undermining it as much as possible, you can then spin it off of its soil base like a top. Bucket force and patience are the keys to success, try periodically to move the stump, if it doesn't go, undercut some more until it does. My Woods digs in every type of soil and has just enough boom up force to dig out some good size (3 foot) diameter heavy rocks. Regretably, in full time landscaping use the Woods requires mucho maintenance. My advice is; how much money do you have and how serious are you about the work you'll be doing? When my Woods reaches the end of its productive life it will be replaced with a BRADCO only because for me time is money! But if you only need an occasional stump or trench, certainly you could do much worse than the Woods. One last thing about Woods, they REALLY STAND BEHIND their products, they've always answered my questions and have gone to lengths to satisfy me. That in itself is saying a lot in today's age of disposable business relationships. If you have any other questions, just E-mail me, I'll be glad to help.
