    Default NEED 8 OR 10 INCH QUICK CHANGE BUCKET

    Man, I never thought finding a bucket for my backhoe would be so exhausting!! I just purchased my first backhoe {1999 t5d/t7}....I am a plumber and really need either a 8 or 10 inch bucket so I can replace water lines..mine has a 15 inch bucket and just seems too wide to replace a 3/4 inch water line. ANY IDEAS? terramite wants 600.00 for a new one....NOT A CHANCE..

    I just bought my terramite [used] not to long ago myself to do some landscaping on my property, not sure what year it is, but I didn't have a chance to use it much, mostly moving some fill dirt so haven't had a chance to really use the backhoe and was wonder how yours dug if you have a chance to use it. The time I tried the ground was hard and dry and it lifted the unit up more than it dug in. I was wondering if your the side to side motion is real touchy, as in jerky? I'm thinking that it's more about control of the lever but haven't found anyone in area that has one to ask.

    Hi ACZ, Try lowering RPMs on engine it slows things down til you get used to it. Mines jerky also running higher rpms one you get used to it not to bad. Sam
