I received the backhoe about 8 days after I ordered it and spent a few hours setting it up for my tractor and just checking things over, I am impressed with how well it is made, I dug a few holes and it is very powerful, Very happy with the purchase, Also contacted customer service about the delivery thru email they were quick to respond

After Betstco sent another pump & Pressure relief valve, I can say his thing will dig! Very please after repair completed!

The backhoe had a little damage to the seat but i was able to fix to my satisfaction, the instructions book that comes with the BH6 is not much help but i looked at the pictures and it was not a bad job getting it hooked to my LS XG 3135 i did have to shorten the drive shaft about 1 inch on both shafts.
This little backhoe does a suprising good job, i had to run the engine between 1700 and 2000 RPM to get the speed i wanted. I am a satisfied BETSTCO customer!
