    Is paying $800 more for a B2601 over a B2301 worth it?

    I bought the 2301 and used the extra money for a backhoe. Felt like the hoe was worth it cause the pump outputs were the same or very close in GPMs. I may go slower or have to take smaller bites of work but it's been fine so far.

    B2301 or B2601?

    In 2016 I had this same issue, 2301 vs 2601. Went with the 2301 because I wanted a backhoe. The extra cost didn't seem worth it! The GPMs were the same or very close, BH 70, but the 2301 does have a bit of shorter swing radius than other backhoes, 140 degrees or so.

Could this be the reason for new or...
