    Default Kelley backhoe

    I have a JD 790, fel. And I have been researching a backhoe attachment. Does anybody have a Kelley 600 or 750 backhoe attachment? I need feedback as I am about to make a fairly large investment with only the advice of a salesman! HELP! Any comments?

    I own a Kelly B600. I like it real well. The only drawback is that it only rotates 165 degrees, 180 degree rotation would be a great advantage. Otherwise it's a nice unit.

    Bought a B750 for my L4310 works great. Got it new for $3500.00 couldn't justify spending more then that for my usage.

    The price sounds great. But, has the backhoe done any frame damage to your tractor? How hard did you use the hoe? Stumps ???
    Thanks

    I ripped out a couple of small cedar tree stumps but nothing over 8 inches. The hoe came with a stablizer mounting package that solidly mounts it to the tractor, I haven't experienced any tractor frame problems but I have it on a real heavy 45 hp tractor and have used it for about 160 hrs.

    I too have a B600. I rarely use the mounting kit. I use mine on my Zetor 25hp and my ford 3600 40hp tractors. I have dug many ditches, removed large rocks, dug up and pulled up stumps, pride up concrete, pulled out fence post, etc. I did break the original stablizer bracket(it connects your stabilizer frame to you brawbar). I easily made a thicker one in under an hours from .5" flat stock and kept on digging. My web site has some info on the b600.
