 Backhoe misuse

The best advice is to read and completely understand your ops manual. Every thing is always laid out in very plain English. If you follow the guidelines you will be OK. Use common sense if you are digging and lifting the front of the tractor you need to take smaller bites. Use smooth fluid movements and don't be ramy. Remember it is a digging machine not a hammer or a crane. If you need to lift with it again use common sense as far as weight and size of the object.

 Backhoe misuse

Banging things around isn't great for hoe or tractor. Full buckets on the end of long poles have a lot of inertia and it's pretty easy to slam them into their stops.

You'll likely get the hang of feathering the valves to control the speed of some operations after a bit of experience. When I first started I ran the rpm a bit low to slow down the hoe speed but it didn't take very long before I wanted it at pro rpm.

Thanks for the info, I was wondering what people are doing to break a tractor in half, is it bad practice to move the tractor front or back with the hoe? Thanks again

"is it bad practice to move the tractor front or back with the hoe?"

Not in my opinion as long as the FEL is raised off of the ground and the out riggers are not in ground contact as well as HST is not in gear and brakes are not set!

 Backhoe misuse

Anything that causes the bell housing area of the tractor to be heavily stressed is bad. As an obvious example, say you have a lot of weight in the FEL and are using the backhoe to pull up a stubborn stump. The weight on the FEL is pulling the front down and by pulling up on the stump the back of the tractor is also being pulled down. This puts a bending stress stress on the center of the tractor. Sort of like holding a stick in both hands and bending it in half.

I don`t keep the fel loaded when using hoe, usually drop it down and put some down pressure to it, correct or not?

I do the same thing but usually I point the bucket edge down which digs it in a little.

Kw has the right idea. It will not hurt if while you are digging if the hoe pulls the tractor a little. Usually what you can do is change the angle of your bucket teeth.
