    Thanks guys! I`m really fond of it :)
    It`s a shame that this type of backhoe is so uncommon in sweden. Backhoes used here are mostly bigger ones.

    I love the 590 series. No backhoe has ever been too big. I have the 580K. It sometimes is too small.

    Hobbytime;

    Your backhoe isn't new. 1985? My first backhoe, I answered an ad. An older man said he bought a 555 (triple nickel) to replace an older Case. He couldn't get used to the difference in controls from the Case. The price was good, the machine was pristine, low hour. I wanted it. Next day, trying to pay for it, I was witness to a horrible example of parental abuse. The 30 year old son threw a fit. It was his machine, his father had no right to sell it. I still don't know who owned it.

    A day later the son called me to offer a newer Case 580E. It was abused, but fixable. Again the price was right. It was 4 wheel drive. I agreed to buy. I was 150 miles from home. He wouldn't accept my check. I suggested his bank was across the road. I could have my bank wire the money to his bank while we wait. That wasn't good enough for him. I ended up not buying. I couldn't deal with this nut.

    Two years later, on vacation nearby, my son and I were driving along when we spotted a Case 350 Dozer. The asking price was $3500. It wasn't easy finding the owner. He was losing a 16 year battle with brain cancer. He wanted to put his affairs in order before he died, didn't want his wife to have that task too. Three hours into the process, I was writing the check, when the A hole from the backhoe incident pulled in with his trailer. He handed the seller 35 $100. bills. The guy looked at me, feeling guilty, apologized.

    No 555 for me, or 350 Case, all because crack pots are allowed to roam free.

    Years later it's a 580K Case, and TD7G Dresser dozer. I'm wiser but none the worst for my experiences.

    The 555 is one tough, well designed tractor. Friends in the dirt business retired one to farm use only. It works with no maintenance at all, for twenty years.

    those double D or loop chains got me out of some sticky mud many times....the rear tires are due for some new replacements, that will be spring time...the 555 spends most of its time on softer dirt, and when clay gets wet its like grease..

    its around 1980 vintage and was well maintained by the previous owner, he has an excavating business and as he upgrades to newer machines I get first dibs on what he sells, I also picked up a komatsu D-58 dozer from him...sounds like you have the nut magnet turned up to high...LOL...the 555 is serving me well, when I was renovating the house and had to replace all the stacked stone foundation with a new footing and block, in the long run it was cheaper to buy the 555 than pay someone todo the excavating and sight work..there was a learning curve, but in time I got the hand of it...good thing the finished siding wasnt on my house yet..lol...a few hidden scars from getting too close with the buckets...

    I had a 580 Super D for many years. Bought it used & in kind of rough shape, then fixed it up & painted it. Mine had the 2 stick John Deer controls......took a bit of getting used to, but once I was used to it I liked it. It was a nice machine. Sold it a few years ago & got a 580 SM.

    This was my Super D. 20131010_171255.jpg 20140718_112448.jpg


    Here is the 580 Super M. It was 9 years old when I bought it with low hours on it.

    I've never seen a D before. We have a number of Es locally. I presume the flat glass, and twin boom cylinders make it a European built model. Cummins T390?
