Tricky day to make this video! Typical New England weather, but I hope you can all still enjoy it. I needed to relocate a smaller but still HEAVY propane tank about 1100 feet away and my driveway includes a steep hill too. I think it shows some of the possibilities with the backhoe for work like this and some good closeups.

I have been making a lot of other videos this month as well so please feel free to check them out on my youtube channel. If you like them I would appreciate if you would subscribe to my channel as well and you will always know about my current videos.

Thank you for the kind comments, I hope you enjoy this one....

The backhoe won't lift much when up that high, will it? I found that out early on as well!

Think about getting some forks. You'll move stuff like this with forks once you have them.

Backhoes can do more than just dig? :lol: Why are the hazard lights on in the video?

Sivercymbal I also have an American Eskimo. He's a pretty good dog and looks just like yours. Mine is toy sized so he only weighs 18 lbs. Is yours a standard or a toy.

That's awesome. Ours is a standard, she just turned 1, so we are finally beginning to get out of the puppy stuff. The fur will never go away but at this point I can say it's worth the trouble.

Great to hear you have one also.

Is that the final location for your propane tank? Any thoughts about setting it on a pad or possibly a concrete pavers to keep it from sinking into the soil?

No just keeping it there for now temporarily. It's freezing here so we are pretty limited with how much more I can do for now. The old install was just on a few bricks which I never liked. I definitely want a pad when it's done.

Bolt-on hooks

Get yourself a bolt-on hook like the one pictured below. It makes lifting jobs like yours a little easier and safer. I have one on both my 12" and 8" buckets.
