    Default Bradco 509 backhoe - possible purchase

    I am considering purchasing a 1999 Bradco backhoe (model 509) for use on a kubota L3710 and JD 5300. Both tractors have standard rear hydraulics - not power beyond. Is this too much hoe for the Kubota? I plan to use the hoe for personal use and probably not frequently. Any comments good or bad would be appreciated. Any problems with a Bradco hoe? The hoe price is $6000 and includes 3 buckets and in excellent condition. Is price reasonable?

    Radman,

    If I remember right, MarkC was using the same backhoe on his 4310. If the 509 is the sub frame mounted unit, Mark thought it was a great backhoe. One of the things he liked best was that he did not have to remove his 3pt arms to hook up the backhoe. You might try a search and see what you come up with.
