    Googled "backhoe forum" if I'm not mistaken. Or maybe "Case backhoe forum." This site would have been one of the top hits.

    I am a newbie, this is my first post. I found the site thru a search on small dozers. The info I read here was intelligent and there was a ton of knowledge being shared. After hours on this site, I scraped the dozer idea and bought a mini excavator.

    Found this site after looking . . . and looking. . . . and looking . . . . for information on diagnosing a Cat 312B that wouldn't go into Rabbit travel speed.
    This seems to be the only place where you can get any knowledgeable assistance on Cats.
    I -really- appreciated the information I received. It saved me hundred$ by -not- getting something done that would not have fixed the problem.
    I hope I can return the favor in the future.

    I found this site when I was searching for my first skid steer. I was pretty sure I wanted a Case 1845C and so when I was searching for information on them I noticed there were a lot of forums on this site reviewing them and I kind of got hooked from there. I read a bunch of the other forums on here and thought this group sounded like a lot of the guys I could identify with. I don't post a lot but the little bit that I have, you guys have had answers for me.

    We're pretty easy to get along with.

    If you have something to sell, and you own it, putting it in our For Sale section is fine. Steve's background is as a small businessman. If you're a little guy, we're happy to help out. Bigger operations that have PR and advertising budgets to sell their goods or services don't need HEF to offer them a free ride.

    Spammers, who join strictly to post links promoting stuff, particularly those that have little or nothing to do with heavy equipment, are shown the door. There's some latitude in the rulebook to allow us to judge whether a one-off post of something industry related is acceptable or not. Like eating potato chips though, most spammers can't seem to stop at just one. :rolleyes:

    Welcome to Heavy Equipment Forums. :)

    Digger242j If I try to respond to people looking for stuff, it tells I do not have privileges to respond. I have posted 6-7 times on forum but then realized I was looking at old post not new ones. Any help

    Gotcha Mate! Lots of friendly knowledgeable folks here.

    A few issues with the new format but the mods and techies are getting it sorted.

    I'm just south of Gladstone.

    Cheers.
