    I started backing into my garage back in 1986 because I could share my driver door space with my roommate's car. My wife started doing it a few years before that because if you need to jump start it, it's ready to go. We've been married almost 25 years and we both back in to the garage and have done so at each of our 3 homes. I figure I'm usually way more in a hurry to take off than to get home and driving out saves a few seconds. Plus I never had to worry about backing over a kid on the way out. My kids know how to do it, too.

    Wow. Sorry, I forgot this was supposed to be about backhoes.

    Backing is a good idea. Seeing most parking lot accidents happen when someone is backing out of a space than any other movement. My wife and I always backed into our garage. When all of our children turned of driving age they were told they wouldn't get there license until they could parallel park and back into a parking space. My daughter practiced with my tractor and now backs into any space first shot with any of our vehicles.

    Yeah,Farmall 55a! I remember being totally amazed in my younger days when a super operator`' lowered a Massey backhoe down into a creek I was pouring bridge abutments in for a new bridge. WHAT AN OPERATOR! He diverted the waterway,lowered the machine,dug the footins' and lifted his machine out.I had never seen anything like it! Made my job a lot easier,and by the time I had the forms set,I was pouring concrete under water.LOL! Bridge held....road's still there! don-ohio

    Here is mine. It came with the package, I wouldn't have sprung for it but like anything else, now I don't know what we would do without it. It has saved time and money. Oh and my back

    Thought I had better pics. Have to work on that

    I went out and looked at mine today. I said to myself that I should have parked it in the heated garage instead of leaving it out. Then I kicked myself when I remembered that I didnt have a garage to put it in. Then I went in the house, got in the recliner in front of the stove with the laptop, and when I woke up two hours later, posted this.... Thats the extent of my backhoe use for today.
    The more I want to get something done, the less I call it work..........
