- 2008 Massey Ferguson 1552 with a 1580 back hoe
Massey Ferguson 1580 back hoe
I had this post in the Massey forum with no luck so I thought I would try it here. I built a garage this past fall that will also have a woodworking shop on the back. I am now building a wall that will seperate the shop from the garage. My question has to do with the total length of my tractor with the back hoe on it. I have a Massey Ferguson 1552 with a 1530 loader and I have ordered a 1580 back hoe. I have not yet received the back hoe but need to know if the tractor will fit in the garage as planned or if I need to "steal" some room from my shop and make the garage bay the tractor/back hoe will reside in longer. Can anyone tell me how far behide the tractor a 1580 back hoe sticks out when it is not in use? Thanks.

Re: Massey Ferguson 1580 back hoe
On my Branson the backhoe adds about 4' to the length of the tractor. I am sure if you call your dealer he will be able to tell you exactly how long it will be. I am thinking they need to know this for shipping purposes.
