    Default MASSEY 1580 BACKHOE PROBLEM, BROKEN SUB FRAME

    HI, I HAVE A MASSEY 1552L TRACTOR WITH A 1580 BACKHOE. I PURCHASED THEM NEW,TOGETHER , THE TRACTOR HAS 67HR SO THE BACKHOE HAS 30 TO 35 HOURS ON IT. RECENTLY WHILE DIGGING A HOLE, THERE WAS A SNAP. THE CONTROL PANEL CAME BACK INTO THE OPERATOR'S AREA. STARTLED I PULLED A LEVER WHICH MADE IT COME BACK EVEN QUICKER. THE ONLY REASON I WASN'T BADLY HURT WAS THE COLLAPSING OPERATOR AREA RIPPED THE RED HYDRALIC QUICK CONNECTORS APART. THE STEEL WHERE THE BOTTOM MOUNTING BOLTS CONNECT THE BACKHOE TO THE SUB FRAME COMPLETELY RIPPED OUT ON BOTH SIDES. IS THIS HOE TOO LIGHT FOR THE TRACTOR? DESIGN PROBLEM? THE DEALER HERE IN NH HAS GIVEN ME EVERY EXCUSE UNDER THE SUN WHY IT'S NOT COVERED. THE TRACTOR IS 17 MONTHS OLD. THE ORIGINAL DEALER ADVERTISEMENT AND THE SALES QUOTE SPECIFICALLY STATE 3YEAR MANUFACTURE'S WARANTE. THERE IS NO CLAUSES FOR 1 YEAR WARRANTE ON EITHER ADD FOR THE BACKHOE. I'VE TALKED TO THE NEW ENGLAND AREA REP BUT HAVE YET TO GET A RESPONSE. ANY ADVISE WOULD BE APPRECIATED.
