Serious?

You gonna have that thing shipped?  What ya gonna hang it on?

Will that thing run on green energy?   ;D

I have run dozens of backhoes, including a few of those old Cases.  Looks like a 3-stick w/foot-controlled swing...the 2 short outer sticks are for the outriggers, but you probably already knew all that.  Not my preference but they will dig ok if you can put the juice to them and learn which lever to pull (pedal to press)...and when.    ;)

Good luck!   8)

Good purchase Neal.  At present, a Case 530 backhoe in that condition sells $1400 t o$1600-ish here in central Indiana.  I think you got a pretty decent deal IMO.  Check your hydraulic cylinders when you get it (but you probably already know that).  :thumbup:

My sister just moved out to San Francisco so there may be a family visit trip that is tax deductible in my future!  haha.

As far as what it will hang on I would like to get a skid steer, this one looks like a fun project: http://www.auctiontime.com/OnlineAuctions/Details.aspx?OHID=9977905&lp=mat

or on the back of a tractor.

I am quite sure it will be anti-green haha.

Cylinders and hoses are supposed to be in good condition according to the seller.  We will see.  Most other backhoe attachments are 3x - 4x that price.  They are spendy.

Somebody here may know for sure but I am guessing that hoe would be too big for most/all skidsteers.  Some of them have enough ponies and hydraulics to operate it but I think when you picked up your outriggers it would raise the back end of the machine off the ground.  Maybe it could be counterweighted?

The Case tractors they put that model on were probably only 40 or 50 hp, but they were heavier built than a farm tractor....and you will probably have to devise a way to mount it on a standard 3-point setup.

But yeh, for the price, if you can get it rigged onto a suitable machine, that's a helluva deal if it's in decent condition.

Diiiiig it!

I have the  whole  tlb  with that  hoe   ,  a  580 CK it's a  heavy  hoe  ,sturdy and strong  but heavy . I agree  prolly  too heavy  for a skidsteer  and you gonna need a  wack of weight on the front of a farm tractor

"Good condition" term on EBay means "it works at present."  If you have to replace the cylinders or have the pistons rechromed in order for them to hold lift pressure without leaking or failing, it is B.M.W. (Bring More Wallet) time!

The hoe is too big for any but the largest skid steers btw.  Hoes on skid steers are not fun (nor easy) to operate.  Save yourself the trouble and find a suitable tractor.  Case could tell you the HP requirement (and suggested tractor weight) for that particular hoe.

Best of luck with your new toy Neal.  :thumbup:

If the case hoe is built anything like our John Deere hoe, it's gonna take one hell of a skid steer to handle it.

I think this one is a 530, not a 580.  Not sure if that makes a difference.

I'm hoping to get a Case 85xt or 95xt (#3150 capacity).  Hopefully either of those should have the weight capacity for it.

Should look like this, only with a permanent mount:
