    I'll let it run one more day and give you the answer. I'm not sure what I can give as a clue without giving it away, but you should think non-traditional.

    Oh, non-traditional. So it's a rig you made in your shop built from Deere, JCB, Ford, a Cat cylinder, Case, Massey, a bolt from a Terramite, and the bucket from a Dynahoe. :yup

    Ok. It's from an AMT/Ertl 1/25 scale model of a JD 310 backhoe. That's non traditional....

    Nice find CM1995 - the bent boom & different bonnet on the Gemini had me, I thought it was a different or younger model - but these two machines look as though they come from the same factory - China for sure. ;)

    Well guys, I promised I'd reveal the source of the image in our logo so here we go.

    I took a photo of my Bradco 611 backhoe attachment for my skid steer after I had posed it in the proper position to form an "A". My graphics man then manipulated it and changed the color to construction yellow. Bradco's are sold black. So there you have it.

    It is uncanny how similar the backhoe is to the John Deere machine, and I think goes to show how well built the Bradco units are.
