    Default Taylor Way backhoes

    Got an auction coming up where they have 26 of these (model 766) for auction. I've seen them advertised from $3500-4000.

    Anybody got an opinion/experience with these things? Might pick one up at less than $2000.

    thanks!

    I too would be interested in any comments about this backhoe attachment. I'm looking to buy one for my JD 4210 30 hp. I understand that a backhoe should have subframe and I would fabricate one for this backhoe.

    BTW dubldee, if you have any info as to how I can buy one of those 2K unit, please let me know [img]/forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] .

    The Taylor-Way backhoes (made by Taylor Pittsburgh in
    TN) look good in the photos and are very competitively
    priced. The 766 is a 6 1/2 ft model, but $2000 must be a
    VERY special deal. I hope to see a Taylor-Way backhoe
    sometime this summer.

    The Taylor Way 766 is a 3pt hookup right?
    I imagine that a 3pt backhoe is not appropriate to your tractor, and a subframe hookup would need to be fabricated, otherwise you could rip the rear end out of your tractor.

    Many a smaller tractor (not a utility size) have split because of the stresses caused by a 3pt hoe. Check your owner's manual or dealer.

    I know that Kioti recommends against, and will not cover the damage from a 3pt backhoe.

    Hey dubldee, how's about info on those $2K attachments?

    For dfkrug: Do you have a local source for the Taylor backhoe attachment? I see you're in CA so I thought I'd ask before ordering one from back east.

    My property is nothing but River Rocks. Last year, I hired a guy with a post hole digger on his Bobcat. The rocks just "ate" up the diamond tips on two of his auger. He said that it would cost more to replace the tips of the auger than what he charged me to dig the 20 holes [img]/forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]

    Three days this week, I dug by hand, 16 post holes for the 3 rail fence I'm installing around my 10 acres. The only tool I could use is a heavy crow bar to loosen the rocks and a shovel to scoop them out of the hole. On each strike with the bar, pain shot up my arms and shoulders when they hit the larger rocks. **** I'm too old to be doing manual labor, that's why I bought my Deere 4210 tractor [img]/forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]. So I'll pull the trigger and buy a backhoe attachment. The best price I've found was this Taylor Pittsburg at about $4300 delivered.

    I have never seen a Taylor-Way, but I have heard good
    things about them and, like my Prairie Dog 7.5,
    they are very competitively priced. I don't know of any
    dealer out west carrying them. The quotation of
    $4300....is that for the 6.5' hoe or a bigger one?

    Yes, it's the model 766. $3600 for the backhoe w/pump kit, $700 shipping.

    Ouch. The Prairie Dog 7.5 is a 7 1/2 foot hoe and
    goes for $4200 + shipping. I have been hoping and
    asking the Prairie Dog folks in Michigan to build a
    6.5 hoe, but nothing is scheduled yet. Shipping to the west
    coast from the midwest can be brutal for one machine, so
    $700 sounds low.

    I bought a Taylor Way last spring from Ohio. I've done numerous things with it. I'm in pretty nasty clay, and I can get through it, it just takes a while. I'm actually shopping for a new tractor now, 'cause I just can't keep mine running long enough to get the work done that I need to. I've busted a couple of hoses, and the metric fittings seem to be a problem for some of the hydraulic places around here, but there's enough shops around that I have eventually been able to repair all that I've needed to.

    I paid less than 4k and picked it up myself. I'd do it again. It's a stout little backhoe for sure. If I were to hook it up to a new machine, I'd fabricate some sort of bracing to take a bit of the load of the 3-point.
