    Thumbs up Mushroomhunter

    Hello All,

    I have recently purchased my first backhoe. I have operated heavy equipment for 22 years but now, I finally have my own. It's a New Holland 555E 4x4 with a 4 in 1 front bucket. I have used it to clear some property, used it as scaffolding to build a small barn, and am now in the process of building a pond. This site has been an great resource and I decided to join.

    Glad I'm not the only one to use the bucket as a scaffold... Welcome!
