    I know this is an old post, but obviously you never used one of FLU419 backhoes or if so didn't use it long enough to appreciate it. I can tell you it has as much break out force as a regular Case backhoe and it will lift the 16,000 lb. truck and move it with the front bucket down and teeth in the ground and the outriggers fully extended. If anything its only real shortcoming is not weighing enough. I have dug holes 14 feet deep without getting into the hole. It also worked great for building a berm for our shooting range. It is about 8 ft. high and 40 feet long. I say about on the height as it changes with hard rains, LOL... Every now and then it takes a redo to get it back in shape.

    I'm painfully aware of that I haven't used mine much recently, but I'll do my best to put another hundred or so hours on one.

    Need help....I have a bad hose and lots of old weathered hoses.
    Anyone have a list of backhoe hoses and hose fittings for the Mog?

    Except for the feed and return lines and their QD couplings, I'd think that everything is standard Case 580 D stuff. If it's a D, I don't remember for sure.

    CASE part numbers are in the military parts manual. The M35C backhoe shares more parts with the 580E.
