/ Final thoughts before purchase in the 3500lb+ cab range? #21
L48TLB is a great machine!I am sure that a backhoe is not for everybody, but I doubt very seriously that most who have BH's would now be willing to surrender them.
To put it into perspective, there are two more bits of BH information I should share.
#1) I am 80 years old, and do not like picking things up that weigh more than 75 lbs., or wrestling them around.
#2) My L48TLB hoe has an 11' dig depth, so it is a light construction type piece of equipment, and can lift, move, or dig, substantially more than a 6' or 7' hoe.
My Kubota L48TLB will be in my barn until I am under the ground,..... perhaps, it could even be used to dig that final hole for me.
