I have had to put this notice up because the last 2 auctions I have run on eBay ended with

DEAD BEAT BIDDERS.

IF YOU ARE NOT PREPARED TO FOLLOW
THROUGH WITH YOUR COMMITMENT

DO NOT BID

I do not play games by putting items up
and then pulling them at the last minute
when the price doesn't meet my expectations.
 

Don't play games with me by bidding and not
being ready to honor your commitment when you win.

 

 

This Kohler started up for me on the coldest, most icy night of last winter during a storm and covered with snow and ice.
Even after sitting outside for 3 months without being run! It has NEVER failed to start. Recent oil change and plugs and
a new air cleaner. The plugs didn't seem to make much difference one way or the other. It still runs smooth. You do not
need to run the Kohler at full throttle either in order to get good working pressure from the hydraulic pump. It will work
great at about half throttle and power both units very well. If you need the extra for something heavy duty you can open
it up all the way.

The teeth on the bucket look just about the way they did when I bought the unit. The edges are clean and sharp with no
cracks or repairs. The bucket does have a center drain hole and it is a 12 inch bucket.

The Bradco Backhoe has two completely separate hydraulic cylinders for the left and right swing. Many units use a single
hydraulic cylinder and a chain. Just one of the details related to build quality that you come to appreciate.

The drivers position is simple and easy. A foot pedal for forward and reverse, a hand brake, power steering with a spinner
installed on the wheel and a standard bucket controller.

Both of the operators seats are in great shape with NO rips or tears. Both of them swing up and out of the way easily.

Look closely at the bucket. It holds about a third of a cubic yard of material and the leading edge is reinforced by a
1/2 inch thick grader blade material spanning the full width. The edge is straight and the bucket shows absolutely
NO abuse what so ever. The bucket can lift to almost 7.5 feet with a lift capacity of 2100 pounds.
See below for the full spec. sheet.

As you can see the backhoe seat is in the same condition as the primary seat.

The backhoe controls are standard and the two middle levers control the stabilizers.

When I fixed the parking brake handle I needed to remove the right rear wheel. After puzzling over how to get it
up off of the ground a light bulb went off and I realized that all I needed to do was lower the stabilizer and put
it right up in the air. No problem and real handy. I never owned a backhoe before this one. Can you tell.

The loader assembly is massive and can really do some work. All of the hydraulic cylinders are in great shape on both
the loader and the backhoe. Good clean stainless steel all around.

The hydraulic cylinders of the stabilizers have shields that were optional when the Bradco Backhoe was built. It saved me
once although I didn't know enough about backhoes to even look for such a thing when I bought it. I do now though.

Everything about the backhoe is heavy duty and Bradco is well known for the quality and workmanship they put into
their units. Allmand Bros. makes their own backhoes now and from what I can tell they don't measure up.

Take a look at the amount of steel in the boom and the dipper arm. Nothing flimsy looking there.

The lights on the upper roll cage do work although I never dug at night. If you need to work late they may come in handy.

One of the great things about this tractor is the size of the tires. The rears have such a large footprint that there is almost
NO pressure exerted on the ground and no tearing up of your lawn unless you want it to.

I bought this Tractor Loader Backhoe last year from a local dealer and I have to tell you that I have been very happy with the work it has performed.

I needed to do some excavation work without tearing up my property and it has done and continues to do a great job. The heavy work is now done and it is time to let someone else put it to work on their job. I loved having it but to keep it around to move mulch is a bit of overkill. I bought a smaller tractor with a loader that will do the job nicely and will cut the lawn as well.

During the time I have had the Allmand I have only done a small bit of repair work. I installed a couple of new hoses on the loader side of the tractor because of a bit of fluid leaking and there have been no problems since. All of the fittings are standard fittings and repairs are easy and simple.

I also replaced the parking brake handle. The old one was completely rusted and had no ability to adjust the brake. The new one works perfectly.

I did do an oil change with filter this spring as well as new spark plugs. I think the plugs were a waste of money because it runs exactly the same and the old plugs came out dry. There is NEVER any smoke.

I have to say that I have come to really respect this tractor. It is built like a battleship out of REAL steel but walks on your lawn and doesn't leave a mark behind. It weighs over 3500 pounds but handles easily. My wife runs it around like it is nothing and she doesn't even really like machinery. The power steering is smooth and quick. With the spinner on the steering wheel you can run the loader with your right hand and steer with your left and make short work out of a pile of anything.

There are a couple of small issues that I have not found the need to deal with. There is still some small seepage issue with the backhoe side of the unit. You can see it on the back side of the boom but it never leaves tracks. The loader and the backhoe both leak down if left in the up or expended position but it takes a couple of days for the loader to hit ground and the backhoe doesn't have far to travel. It has never been a problem for me to park it with everything on the ground ready to shed water if it rains. The gas struts on the hood no longer work. I prop it up with a stick.

The hour meter no longer operates and it hasn't since shortly after I got it. Right now it reads 1343hrs. but it stopped working last summer not long after I got it. I think that when I bought it there were 1320 something on the meter. I have probably put 60 to 80 hours on the tractor since the hour meter went out of whack. Personally it doesn't bother me at all. I didn't buy it because of the hours I bought it because it was a backhoe I could afford. I didn't have $18,000 to spend on a new light weight Deere or Kubota and I certainly didn't have $20,000 plus for a larger used one. This fit my needs perfectly and allowed me to do the work I needed to do in the time frame that worked for me.

Truthfully I am going to be sorry to see it go. It has proven to be extremely versatile and easy to operate. If you have a need for a loader / backhoe for some work around the house or farm this just might be what you are looking for. It is a 2 wheel drive tractor but I have NEVER felt like I was missing anything by not having a 4X4.

This is a remarkable piece of machinery and the most remarkable part is that I am able to sell it on eBay and know that even though I might take a bit of a loss it was worth it to have it at my disposal while I did the excavation I needed to do.

Unlike other eBay sellers we do take the time to make sure that even though you are bidding on a something used you are going to be getting something that you can be proud to say...
