I was going to put this under Equipment but thought it might make a good hunting vehicle.It has four wheel drive with rear locking differential.Rollbar if I get too carried away.A place to carry all my hunting equipment.A portable place to hang deer from on both ends.Can dig a privy hole for camp.Can be used as a portable observation lookout.Oh and the backhoe can be used to pull yourself out of those tough spots too. :signs1180lq: Attached File  DSC_0005.JPG   78.71KB   135 downloadsSeriously it's my new yard and pasture toy. We dug out some chain link fence posts this morning. Concrete must have been really really cheap when they put these in. And I don't know who taught them to dig holes that are belled out on the bottom. I could barely lift the posts with concrete after I snatched them out of the holes with the bucket. Now I'm going after some stumps I've been putting off digging out. I'll have to think up a few new excuses as to why I can't do something now. :doh[1]: The wife even likes to run it so it might not have been a bad purchase after all. :signs1180lq: She even pushed me to buy it so I don't have to feel like I got it for myself. :653:

Well John..... did you get a towel to put on your head when you bought that Marhinda?? Since they are made in India LOLWell, at our property in WA state, last year the wife went out and "forced" me to buy a New Holland for use, since she didnt like me (her) using a wheelbarrow to haul stuff, dig post holes, etc. Here she is driving down the road after digging some post holes:Posted ImageThis was her first time driving the tractor, and notice the "panic look" on her face !!Posted ImageHere is our youngest grandson (2) with his John DeerePosted ImageI took myself and my 2 sons 3 hours to put that John Deere together, and it was already 3/4 complete!! You know us guys.... we refuse to read instructions LOLJohn

It is a Kubota BX24. I did look at the Mahindra but they weren't that much cheaper. So this one had all of the stuff I needed on it so I did the deal. Rod you're right I shouldn't lose it. I spent three hours on it today and it purrs like a kitten.

You're correct, my mistake. Mahindra's are red, not orange, I do believe?

It's 23 horse power and I bought several NEW attachments for it. I put a thumb on the backhoe for picking up things. It's a very cool ability to use it like a hand. The other NEW parts were a skid plate to protect my hydraulic pump fan and a ripper tooth. The ripper replaces the bucket on the backhoe and is great for removing tree stumps or making narrow trenches for piping. The front end loader is nice for moving things. I built a removable trailer hitch for it to move my boats. It also has a lift chain on it for picking up odd shaped items. I built some removable forks for it to move pallets and such also.

New Holland is a good unit. I needed something compact and the backhoe has been the next best feature besides the front end loader.

You're correct, my mistake. Mahindra's are red, not orange, I do believe?

They are red and infact have quite an American background. They are a spin off of the 'ol International Harvester (although you could get yourself the current Case/IH tractor too - same rig).Now - Our New Hollands as Ford as that blue is - still has a Shibauru engine under the hood...
