    Default Options for backhoe attachment on Massey Ferguson 1240 tractor

    What options do I have for a backhoe attachment on a MF 1240 tractor?
    I know the stock one was MF 1217, but they are kind of rare to find. If anyone has one close to BC, Canada, let me know..

    I've read that the stock one (MF 1217) has a frame and that this the preferred option for the tractor, but can anyone tell me if a Kelley B10A will work with my tractor? There is one Kelley B10A for sale right now on craigslist...

    Default Re: Options for backhoe attachment on Massey Ferguson 1240 tractor

    I see Kubots hoes on craigslist all the time, modern CUT Massey's: Never. And boy they aint giving the away either. I have the bigger brother CB 20 for my 1736 and I like it. Back in 2012 /13 they said they could hardly move them. In 2014 when I got mine I literally had to wait 6 weeks and have them build one and ship it from Korea. It is nice having a rig that is dedicated to the machine. It's on or off in 10 minutes if it's sitting on flat ground. Then woe be you trying to line things up. Whatever you do get one that has a dedicated sub frame so you can switch implements fairly easily.
    FYI Massey in 2013 had an equine program that applied up to 28% discount on tractors and implements costing over $5,000. I'm not sure if they are still doing it for horse owners or are back to small farm operations these days but if you qualify that big discount knocks the price down to around what you would pay for a used one in Craigs List. It's worth a thought anyways.
