    2025r fel to tlb

    If I were to purchase a 2019 2025r with just a FEL would I be able to easily add the 260B down the road?

    Yes.

    But, it will be MUCH cheaper and a lot less hassle to just do it NOW if you're ever going to consider it. It's one of those options where it's best to do it at purchase or forever hold your peace. As the machine ages it sometimes can be more cost effective to trade it in for a newer machine with a backhoe. Although, you really still don't make out on the deal typically. The dealer does, and you just get a backhoe for the same payment.

    Yes itís possible. The backhoe just comes as a kit that you could install or have your dealer install. Itís an expensive add on and I figured better to finance now at 0%. You wonít get 0% if you finance it later.

    That is what I figured. I'm just having a hard time pulling the trigger of a backhoe I only have a few projects for.

    As a suggestion: If you ever do buy a backhoe, you'll need to Power beyond hydraulic setup to operate it. Order that with your tractor. and have your dealer install it. It's fairly cheap. And, just my own observation but Deere tends to replace the backhoes with new models every 5 or 6 years. If you wait 10 years to buy, there may not be one that fits your machine directly at that point.

    The main reason I got mine was to fix my sewer line so it quits freezing. I plan to deal with that sometime in the near future. So far Iíve used it to dig out 2 stumps and dig up and repair a water line. The water line thing came about just a week into ownership of the tractor and Iím glad I didnít have to dig it up by hand. I also have several stumps, rocks, and landscaping projects coming down the pike. None of these would even be thought about, if not for my backhoe. In my case, having it is creating more work for me.

    If nothing else, it serves the purpose of most expensive rear ballast...

    If you are thinking about it just do it. At the very least do what Jim said and add the power boyond now. Just know itís going to suck down the road when you could have had it this whole time.

    It should cost $100 a month or less. You can see if they are still offering 72-84 months 0% interest to soften the monthly blow. Here at my dealer Iíd nave to pay the backhoe off in 6months to have 0% interest.

    How many are a "few" projects?

    If you just have a few projects that can be planned, then I would suggest just renting or even hiring it out.

    If you can add up enough projects to justify the cost of the backhoe, then I would recommend buying it with the tractor.

    I used to be in the "I'll rent it if I need it" category and I only ended up renting a couple times.

    Now, I am in the ditch digging, drainage work, pond bank cleaning, culvert installing, dam rebuilding, stump removing category. At some point a new field bed is going to figure into the equation.

    The other advantage is I can do this work when it is convenient.

    I also agree with the recommendation to get the power beyond if you decide to wait on getting the backhoe if there is even a remote chance that you will add it later.

    To me...just like the tractor itself...I bet if you had a backhoe you'd find ALL SORTS of stuff to do with it.

    I am planning to plant 24 6-8ft leylands this fall, dig a footer for a 70ft long CMU retaining wall, and dig footers for new CMU columns for a deck. I'm trying to get the wife on board to just go ahead now. I would probably spend $1200 on renting to just get those projects complete.


    EDIT
    Now that I think about it more the drains off my gutter downspouts are in pretty rough shape. They could use replacing and a few other downspouts tied in.
