    Default Liberty BH USA or China made?

    Hi,
    Just finding my way around this form,lots of information very happy i found it

    Need some advice on the purchase of a BH for a 3054XS Kioti...

    I was really interested in the Liberty and was ready to order,but i read somewhere there a china made BH and very hard to get parts if needed.

    Your advice would be appreciated!

    I found this on line and fig. they were made in the USA.

    Liberty Backhoe
    Liberty Backhoes is a Phoenix based manufacturer of Backhoes and Wood Chippers. They use a different distribution model than all of the other major tractor manufacturers; Liberty doesn稚 use dealers. They only ship straight to the customer. While this prevents them from offering onsite warranty support and technical service, it does allow them to offer a product at about 50% of the price. The Liberty Backhoe sells for between $3000-4000, depending on the model. They sell 6′, 7′, and 8′ backhoes. The 6′ Backhoe is $3199, and the 8′ Backhoe is $3899. Their backhoe attachments do not come with a PTO pump, so you will need to get a pump or connect the backhoe to your tractor痴 hydraulics. We recommend using a pump, but if you want to have some fun, connect your tractors hydraulics.

    They look a lot like the Chinese Hamney Backhoe. The word is that these are the better ones from China, but still, what I have been reading around on different forums I would stay away from the China made backhoes. Though I own a chinese Mahindra and a Hamney loader that have been flawless I would not pay a dime for a China BH.

    They say it's a Phoenix based manufacturer,maybe there's a Phoenix in China
    Your right,the forms don't have good reviews on the China BH..
    Thanks!

    I just purchased one and so far my experience from talking with them
    and their employees they have been very straight up and professional.
    I was told that they were not Chinese but made locally. They do have
    tech support. I spoke to that dept as well. I would give them a chance
    and not down the product.

    I dont care where it's made as long as it's quality and they use standard type hydraulic connectors.

    Here's the answer they gave me.....
    We are the manufacturer. We have the parts made in our factory in China, then we assemble and test them in Mesa, AZ.
    They come with a hydraulic pump no need for tractor hydraulics runs of tractors PTO...Looks like a well made BH in pictures and about 1/2 the dealer price..
    Got 1/2 a mind to order one today,maybe that's all it takes is a 1/2 mind ..lol

    The five footer looks very modern. How would you have the backhoe shipped to NFLD? Any idea on the shipping cost?

    http://www.buysellcommunity.com/sale/MAYFCORS/Hi,
    They(Liberty) have free shipping to Canada ..about 450.00 customs fee..

    I ended up buying one(new) on ebay about 3900.00 delivered from BC. Tax included.

    I'm taking a big chance on it,i know!!

    Day and Ross will have it here Aug. !st
    It's a LW6 like the one here....I didn't buy this tractor,but it looks like a good deal if you live in the US..
    Couldn't just post the pic..of BH

    I BET.... 200TrueBlue... DON'T WANT TO LOOK AT IT EITHER......

    I purchased the BH from EHBC Distributors Ltd.BC. Canada (EBAY)

    Looks like same BH Liberty has for sale...I was very close to buying from them,but it was shipped from US and with customs and duty and god knows how long it would take for delivery I decided against it.
    You got me a bit worried tho
    I'll know next week when it's delivered and put together.............

    Thanks!
    Ben
