    Indeed. Even though I'm not in the trade, and use my backhoe for my animal rescue, I've always felt welcome here, and had all of my questions answered with patience and respect.

    I don't think I could have gotten any traction with this backhoe without the kind people on this site.

    It took me a couple years of trying to get registered here, I had many unsuccessful attempts. I’m on many forums, only this one was a problem.

    I was looking for a parts manual for a JCB tractor that I am working on, and bing sent me to this site (among others). Haven't been able to figure out which manual I need to purchase for a 214e (3CX), VIN SLP214TC6U090680. Any help?

    Welcome to the Forums Tony!

    Try starting a thread in the backhoe forum and post the same machine info including the VIN.

    Greetings from another senior! I found this sight by looking for information on older Detriot diesels, read some posts and recognized some familiar names from another sight. Thanks from Ontario Canada for the great sight and people, they have helped a lot I want to be able to do the same.

    Hi, by doing web-based searches for specific information about specific models of backhoes I continued to get hits to heavyequipmentforums.com

    Thank you.

    You can blame Skyking for me showing up here. Thats my story and I'm sticking to it.
    Been a huge help with my equipment choices for building my Shop and log home.

    Same with me...I was looking for some answers to something back around 2006 or thereabouts when I stumbled across HEF, and it's been an amazing resource for information on anything that creates black smoke.

    I don’t remember how I found you. I am from Phoenix AZ. I’ve been in business for myself for almost 2 years now. I had been reading a thread about another newbie in business and having the same struggles as me. Scheduling and so forth. It was a huge help for me. I never thought I would be going into business for myself at 50 yrs old.
