Ive had a trench project that kept getting put off by rain, and a few other things, but with Winter upon us, I am just wondering how cold is too cold to dig in?
Ive got a 260B on the 2025, and while I see no problem operating the tractor or backhoe in low temps, I can see it being an issue if the ground is frozen solid.
Around here, it generally doesnt get that bad until mid January, and then its temp dependent. If its been fairly mild, it could never freeze too solid. I guess what I mean by that is that Ive dug holes in January and February, about 2-3 feet, with not much trouble with a shovel before, so I guess Im just wondering, from those of you who have experience with this sort of thing, is there a point where I should not attempt this?
I assume Id know pretty quick with the backhoe if its too hard to dig, but dont want to damage anything.
