    Deere announces new 260B Backhoe for 1-Series Tractors

    We had already heard about the new 120R loader. Today, Deere is announcing a new Backhoe for the 1-series.

    Here is what we know so far: 260B Backhoe

    Not much so far, but it is a start. ...and looks like some nice improvements!

    Cool heads up Tim. I like the latching stabilizers and it is high time they added a cushion to the boom cylinder but I think I prefer my swivel seat to a dedicated one on such a tiny tractor. By the way I just watched your waste pipe excavation on the youtubes, great job! I was worried about the 12 inch bucket when I got my tractor but it digs great in my hard soil.

    The cushioned boom cylinder will certainly make me look like less of an idiot backhoe operator. Even with some experience now, I occasionally bang the boom against the stop.

    I'm not sure how the additional seat will fit. Will the backhoe be further from the tractor?

    From the ad copy it sure sounds like JD has been listening to 1 series TLB owners. For me latching stabilizer arms and boom pins operable from the seat are "frills" as I don't mind hooking up my little stabilizer chain or putting in the boom pins, but handy none the less. Home run on the "Anti Boom Whacking" hydraulic damping on the boom control, though I have it pretty well under control (after the first whack after a time of non-operating).

    Now even pretty ladies will be right at home on the dedicated backhoe seat and they should show up in the JD ad videos real soon!

    Loved the 260 on my 2305. Swivel seat worked great. Shortened the overall length and you could raise the FEL and reach the throttle while using the backhoe. Hope the b has ample legroom for extended use. Hope when the b comes off the machine it doesn't leave a large frame on the ground like the 46? Now JD can sell more wheel spacers and longer trailers

    Posted for general info only. Not suggesting you alter your tractor based upon my feeble minded posts. Do so at your own risk. Maintenance and mods should be performed by a JD Dealer, or refer to your owners and maintenance manuals for proper procedures.

    I noticed some things I really like.

    I like how the rops isn't right over your head.
    I like how they moved the power hydraulic line off the floor and is mounted straight up and down out of the way. Also making it much easier to get to and easier to keep the connections clean! That is a huge plus if you have muddy boots!
    Hand grab doubles as a light protector. Lol
    Not sure about the step? Looks a little high to me? But better than nothing..
    I like the new boom cylinder and would like to demo one to see how well it works.

    That's enough for now!
    Might be a upgrade coming to a few 1025r owners near you!

    So this new 260B backhoe will not be back compatible with existing 1025R tractors? Is this what I am understanding? One needs to order new 1025R to get the 260B backhoe?
    Reason being...I am thinking of buying a 1025R from existing dealer stock....?
