Pictures of the Tractor

This is an older 1960 John Deere 440 Industrial Backhoe. It has been a good tool thus far for getting my septic system started. I can't complain, the tractor has been running good so far this year. I found this on craigslist, like about everything else I now own. I plan on finishing the leach field, power lines and water lines using this. Since I have a cobbly-loam with great drainage, a ditch-witch isn't an option because of the rocks.

Update: The tractor steering had a problem today on 5/25/08 and stopped me in my tracks to finish up the main 6x6 fence posts that will secure my 20' wide gates. Bummer. Have to fix it in the AM. The old John Deere's used pins instead of bolts. This is the second time something like this has happened. I am going to just replace it with a bolt and nut and call it a day.
