I'm now interested in their 9' dig self contained tractor backhoe, FH-BH9 for about $3000- $4000 less than having a BH77 installed
Ditto.....What convinced you, like me, to get the premium VL-WCX5, versus the standard, FH-WCX52? I chatted up one of their reps asking for the differences. They responded with what seemed like scripted marketing copy about how it were just higher quality components and parts without specifics on what parts. The only obvious thing I saw was the paint color. Well that and the increased number of stickers on our version.
The drive shaft should have enough angle without hurting the PTO.I see one more difference based on the photo. Our more expensive version does not come with the built in stand. The cheaper one does. That makes me sad, without one I cannot put mine down the whole way without risking bending the PTO shaft.
I may try to make one out of the shipping cage.
