    Default Betst equipment - Value Leader Backhoe

    Hello everyone, I am new to the site and I was looking for advice. I am needing to purchase a backhoe for my Massey Ferguson GC2400. I have looked at many brands and found a company in OR that sells a brand called Valueleader. Has anyone purchased one of these and know about there quality or know of a good brand.

    Thanks

    Welcome to TBN.
    What depth are you wanting to dig to? What are you wanting to dig? What capacity hoe is your tractor specked for? Are you looking at subframe mounted hoes?
    For instance, my Kioti is 40 HP and I can dig with Kioti's brand hoe to 8.5 feet.
    I know a lot of my fellow Kioti owners use Woods BX-90, ( I believe that is the model designation), and like how it attaches.
    I'm not familiar with the brand you cited.
    I'd want to look for quality of manufacture, details of strength, (weld quality) and whether this company has been around and will likely be around several years down the road for service/parts.
    Good luck choosing- let us know what you decide and show pics.
    2010 DK-40se/hst, Kioti KL-401 FEL, (with reversible Kioti cutting edge), 72" Ratchet Rake. Fit Rite Top-N-Tilt hydraulics & diverter valve. HLA Series 2000 7' snowplow, Aquiline MPC rear chains.

    I am looking for a 6 foot backhoe that is 3 point hitch mounted. I would like to find one that is self contained that runs off the pto.

    I saw those BH units at Betst's facility a few years ago when I picked up the flail mower I bought from them. IIRC they attach to the 3pt hitch. As far as I could tell they looked strong enough and pretty well built, but I'm not an expert on backhoes.

    Good luck.

    I ordered a flail mower from Betst on June 28 with a scheduled ship date of August 15. The shipping date went from the 15th to the 30th to September 10. I started complaining about the constantly moving date and was told that they had the mowers in stock as of August 9 but all of them needed work. Parts were due in on August 30, then they were receiving the parts September 10-13and would start shipping on the 13th. Then there 4 mowers ready to ship on the 18th. And I filed a complaint with BBB to get my money back on September 23.

    Keith at Betst says they just won't ship something that isn't right. I am thinking that if they have to order parts and can't get a brand new piece of equipment ready in six weeks it is something that I don't want anyway.

    Check for my refund is supposed to be in the mail, we'll see.

    And I can still check the status of my order on their website. It now has a ship date of October 30.
