    Default backhoe - woods vs rhino

    hope i can get some help here - this backhoe question is holding up my entire tractor purchase...

    which is the better quality/value in the 7 1/2 food sized bh?

    the performance numbers give the edge to the rhino75 versus the woods7500.

    cost wise there is a significant difference - the rhino75 is $5995 versus the woods7500 at $7360 - frame mount for a kubota B7800

    anyone have opinions regarding quality between these two - the only real structural difference i can find is the rhino has swing cylinders trunnion mounted and the woods uses the chain. does this make a difference and if so how?

    i don't mind paying extra if the woods quality is really there - but i don't know and can't really trust the dealer to be completely objective as this is one component of a ~$25k package - competing two local dealers and this is the only significant differnce in equipment (full package price is about the same with varying implement mfgs).

    Can't comment on the Woods. But I have owned a Rhino ( Rhino 85) for a couple of years now.
    I like it.
    Seems to have good power and speed. Controls work real nice.
    The Woods 7500 is probably a nice backhoe, but not worth the extra $'s over the Rhino 75 in my opinion.
    With the large price differances your receiving the choice would be easy for me. Rhino..

    I have a woods 9000. After 3 months use the Diperstick broke at the weld on top. they replaced it under warranty. I am concerned it may happen again. It may be undersized for my tractor weight. It was the dealer recommend Hoe [img]/forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]
