Ready to take your backhoe attachment capabilities up a notch? Papé’s very own Sawyer Meek (Territory Manager in Walla Walla, WA) shares some great ideas on how to get the most out of your compact tractor’s backhoe attachment with some fun new projects.
Digging a Trench for Electrical Wire
Whether you want to run electric to a shed or set up an electric fence around your property, a compact tractor backhoe is the perfect tool for the job. Even though electrical wire doesn’t need to be buried very deeply, tackling the job with a shovel is slow, inefficient, and physically exhausting. A backhoe attachment makes digging a trench for any purpose a quick and easy task.
Digging Up Stumps & Bushes
Clear out those intrusive bushes growing on your property, shrubs that have been blocking your view in the front yard or that old tree stump in the backyard. Your John Deere backhoe attachment has the power and capability to dig out any bushes, shrubs, and tree stumps you no longer want on your land. If you’re trying to pull a large tree stump, you may need to involve a chainsaw to sever the larger roots to loosen the stump before you remove it.
Digging Out an Egress Window
If you’re thinking about digging out egress windows for your basement, a John Deere backhoe attachment is the perfect solution. Digging out an egress window typically requires compact and precise equipment because you will be working near the foundation of your home. The John Deere compact tractor backhoe attachment offers great visibility and control for work that requires precision.
Whether you’re digging a trench, excavating old tree stumps, or getting rid of those unwanted bushes in the front yard, dig confidently knowing that these are all projects fit for your compact tractor’s backhoe attachment.
