I am looking at buying a second hand bobcat 607 backhoe attachment. Having looked up the specs of this unit, it seems to be quite a competent piece of gear when compared to a small excavator.
I fully realise that I will not have the 360 degree slew of an excavator, nor the ease of movement, but it seems that this will be a very handy tool for trenching and small scale excavation on a farm.
Have I missed something and do these attachments have any particular drawbacks? The carrier will be a 4SDK8 Toyota, which is roughly equivalent to a Bobcat 763 in size. The current owner has been using it on a 743 Bobcat.
What are people's thoughts?
