I put my hoe to work for the very first time since owning her. She did great helping me get unstuck since my wife bottomed LGB(little green beast) out in the mud last night. Took the hoe and FEL to get out.

It's the first time i even took the pins out the hoe. I did not re insert the transport pins last night. I go check on her this morning and she's laying down. Is that normal? Or do I need to check something?

I would sat yes it's normal. Drive your tractor around with the 260 unpinned and it will do the same.

Normal but always a good idea to put the bucket on the ground when parking it like it's a good idea to put the FEL down.. Or pin the hoe, your choice.

Normal, that's why I keep the transport pins in and put a strap on the stabilizers because they will also bleed down.

Haven't had the stabilizers go down at all

And always make sure the fittings are tight and the teeth are firmly in place :lol::lol:
Sorry too many sensitive, impressionable years as a disc jockey...and sequeing into a PSA (move selector lever to serious) its always a good idea to put ANY implement to ground (bed) when leaving tractor unattended. Gravity has a way of convincing little hands to drop things on playmates! And pets often find the most cozy spot on a hot day is hidden under an implement deck - never ends well!!

The 260 is a remarkable backhoe. So easy to remove, install, and store.
My 46 is a pita to get off, store, and install in comparison.
