I added the backhoe to my tractor myself. It's not hard. As I remember the only thing that was a slight problem was the hydraulic line or clamp at the lower left rear had to be moved a little to get a bolt in on the sub frame but not a big deal.

The only things you need to buy are the power beyond kit and the backhoe kit. The parts guy at the dealer will know the part numbers. The backhoe also comes with the necessary parts for the seat and a new rear PTO cover.

I was just quoted 6200 for this unit to be installed. I wonder how much of that is in labor installing it? Anyone know?

Also, wondering how the BH would dig in SW Missouri ground of clay and rock (cement like ground), like digging trench for a covert?

I'm in southwest Missouri. I just dug down 12 inches in a 320 square foot area using the 12" bucket. You know that we need rain around here and I hit hard pan. It was tough digging but I got is done. The ground should get a little better (easier digging with more moisture) as you go deeper shouldn't it?

As far as the BH price, I paid $4800 or $4900 from Larson in Rogersville (I don't remember exactly right now) with me doing the install myself. It's not that hard.

Did you install the Power Beyond kit too?
