The machine may have trouble, it looks like the digging around the rock may have worn out the rabbit in the last picture on the right or maybe he's your operator just taking a break.;)

It may be time for a hoe ram, or some explosives... I mean hammer drill and fire crackers.

Looks like the vibration from digging on the rock broke a post on the ROPS and has the hood jacked up.:D

Those were cool rigs . Not sure when ERTL quit making the IH backhoe .

My boy was using mine in the sand pit . I want to say it's a late 1970's model .
