Hi All, I just bought a used JD 870 with an 8B backhoe mounted. I don't know much of anything about these little tractors having only rented one or two over the years for stuff where a bigger machine couldn't fit. This is really something for me to work around my own place in my retirement years, and while I have some experience with construction equipment, the 3 pt hitch and farm attachments are all new territory for me.

Howdy,

Congrats on your purchase! You've come to a great place to get info. Lot's of smart folks around here. That's why I joined too. :)

Hi Bd, I've spent time around Greenville and other areas in Maine deer hunting. also have a cousin in Belfast with a (not running) 140. If you can run construction machinery, it's only a matter of getting used to a "little" smaller machine. "Welcome" and enjoy al the good folks & info here. Bob
