    No spacers on either machine. But with heavy lug tires probably would need them.

    Here's some pictures of the old girl. I finally got some digital photos so I thought I would post them here. I've had her since new, and she still hides her age well. She still works like a champ too. This backhoe has proved to be an excellent purchase. She mostly sits on the bench now but she will step up to the plate, and get the job done, whenever I ask. I can't think of a single time she has let me down. I hope you enjoy the pics, and let me know what you think.

    Sorry for the delayed response time. I still don't get e-mail notifications for subscribed threads.
    Thanks. I bet you can't guess how many hours are on that backhoe.

    It's a compaction wheel. That one is made by Entek (bought out by Rockland). It's an 18" wide pad foot unit.

    il guess but id say around the 6000 area if its got more then credit is due to you as looking after machines is the best policy and get a heck of a lot more noticeable as a contractor

    That's a fair guess but not accurate. This machine was used exclusively everyday up until I moved to CO. I moved to CO ten years ago and the unit had over 5,000 hours on it then. I have a Polaroid photo and the hoe still looked new at that time. It is not used nearly as much as it used to be. She does not get the attention that she used to, when she was the only machine I owned, so the paint is not holding up so good anymore. The previous photos (taken in December) do not show it very well but she is starting to show her age a bit now. I have had to replace the brakes 2x and I replaced the hydraulic pump last summer. The pump had not given out but I felt as though she was getting a little weak on the lift circuit of the loader. The new pump has things working tip top again.
    Those are some pretty good clues. One more guess and I'll reveal my secret.

    SMU reads over 12,000 hours. This has been a really good machine. She's a little sluggish to start when it's cold out but I can't fault her for it.

    Hi everybody,

    New member here but looking forward to participating and learning.

    I have been eyeing this 67' Ford 4500, for five of the last 10 years, it has been sitting in a barn. My patience payed off as it is now MINE. ;)

    Needs a little work, but still has more the enough potential.

    Hi everyone, this is the CAT I'm using the most. I'm pretty sure its a 416C.

    [​IMG]

    It's probably got well over 10,000 hours on it.
