I saw that a few days ago, stared at it for a good 10 minutes at least. That tractor weighs around 900lbs bare, with the attachments it says its 3000lbs. I think that's to much weight for those axles and spindles. That's said, I'd love to have it still.

The bucket is probably good sized for it. Has alot of weight with that backhoe. But the backhoe looks like a toy, it has no power steering, and is gear drive

The fel is a factory setup actually, the bucket does look larger then most but it seems to be factory made. The backhoe is pretty small, but it probably takes some weight of of the front wheels to steer easier. Also, what would drive would you want on that tractor? Is gear drive a bad thing on something like this?

I personally like gears drive for almost everything. But FEL work is where a hydrostatics really shines. Makes it a really easy to move forward and back and change speeds as you are going into a pile, scraping or loading a truck. On a gear drive that is a lot of clutch work.
