My first post, I tend to lurk and learn, as most of my questions have been asked and answered in previous posts - Thanks everyone, much appreciated.
Sooo... I've set my sights on a 1026R, FEL and backhoe. I've searched, but I haven't found any reviews of the 260 backhoe for the 1026R. Any feedback would be welcome.
A little background, I only have about 1.5 acres, half woods, half grass/garden both areas with a moderate grade, more steep at the start of the wooded half. I've been mowing with a 25 yr old wheelhorse 416 garden tractor which is still giving me great service. I got interested in a SCUT only because of a want for a backhoe, I get tired of digging in our clay and rock "soil". And I want to do some work and hauling in my woods which my Wheelhorse can get into but probably not out of. I don't plan to mow with the 1026r unless my trusty Wheelhorse needs to be retired. I plan to do light digging with the BH, moving material with the FEL, and need the 4WD to get up my slope from the woods. And of course, I NEED a new toy!
I just wanted to get some opinions on the 260 backhoe before I pull the trigger on the 1026R.
Thanks in advance, Tom
