    Looking for a backhoe attachment for 2305!

    Hello all,

    I have a 2305 and am looking for the 270 backhoe attachment. I would like to get one used to avoid the $7K+ cost of getting a new unit. Anyone have something laying around that doesn't get used enough?

    I would also appreciate any thoughts on alternative options, generally looking for something smaller to dig out stumps (I know it will take a while), re-grade smaller parts of the yard, and run downspouts/utilities. Thanks for the help!

    Jonathon,

    Welcome aboard from Massachusetts!

    Regarding a BH for your 2305, I believe you're going to be looking for a 1st. generation 260 model specifically equipped with 2305 attaching parts. Hopefully others who have "been there, done that" will chime-in and share there experiences.
