I will need to do some backhoe work this year, and debating the purchase of a 375a for my 3046r cab model. I have a few questions for those with some experience with that or similar models. My projects include some stone wall repair, trenching for some under-drain, and trenching for underground utilities.
I grew up in construction so my frame of reference is excavators and loader/backhoes. I can borrow my dadís Cat loader backhoe, but need to pay for transportation which can add up... $250 each way. I could also rent but worried about fees over the long term.
So here are the questions:
How maneuverable is it to reposition? Will it have enough power to lift and set over the tractor or push it forward while trenching?
Getting out of the cab, getting on the backhoe, and back? Seems like that would get frustrating.
I found a used one for $5k but it is 5hrs away. Itís only a deal if I would like it.
