This weekend I’m picking up a NOS 260 backhoe from a JD dealer that has one in inventory & is looking to unload it (ha).
The dealer is a good distance away so I’m getting my local JD dealer to install it in order to avoid trailering my 1025 all that way. I’m curious if anyone had ever moved/shipped “just” the 260 (not attached to the tractor)? My plan is to have the dealer strap the 260 to a pallet and load it onto my pickup bed. From there, I’ll drop it off directly at my local dealer who can then fork it off my pickup & store it until they’re ready to install it in my tractor. Thoughts?
