I have a 3033R with a 375A backhoe. I may need to break up some concrete around a swimming pool and was wondering if anyone has used this size backhoe to lift and drop concrete? I used to have a JD 260 skidsteer that had no problem breaking up driveways but that was a much larger and heavier machine. My guess is the concrete I need to remove is no more than 4" thick and about 5' wide. The strategy is to pull up on a corner and drop it and let its own weight break it into smaller and manageable pieces.
Also, anyone have any recommendations for a mechanical thumb? Either bolt on or weld on. I have a lot of fence posts and stumps to remove over the next few years and a thumb on the hoe would make a world of difference.
