Default Re: Great accessory for ATV, towable backhoe

I've seen similar models for sale in the States although not that particular make.

I too have always had a longing for a backhoe but I've never owned one. I want one to go on the back of the Kubota L4740. I have no idea what I would use it for as I have no need for one but as soon as I can think of a reason, we'll go shopping.

The airplane is a Cessna 170 that was flying parts and people back and forth to the recovery.

I was using my snowcat and groomer to haul 1500 gallons of diesel and 8000 pounds of lumber to another mining operation. Took three trips at about 80 miles per trip. This was my set up. 500 gallons at at time 2500-3000 pounds of lumber.
This cost lots of money on those guys, modern excavators have lots of electronics and if they ruined...
Glad they even get it out of there maybe they want use next time on main trail...

Nice set up that Yours snowcat, that won't sink easily.

They built up this machine on China, they just add brand name and color what You want but it is same machine.
