You will have to watch the weight, the flow will be fine but you need to make sure your 643 can lift it. My 743 can just lift a 909 which is the older style of the newer 709 i believe. The 643 is rated slightly lower than the 743s. Thats my only concern though, everything else is the same.

Is the bobcat good with a backhoe?, here in Europe they are very expensive, I have seen a couple used for sale for about 3-4000 eu (about 5000 USD)

The older ones sell for around $3,000 AUD. New i heard they are close to 20,000 AUD!!! thats just insane.
It depends on the dirt you have over there. If its rock you really need more weight to cut through it, but if you have nice easy to dig soil a backhoe attachment would work great.

Your right about the weight, I have try to find the weight for a 709 / 730s/sh on the net, but I could not, does anyone now how most the weight is on these?
On Bobcat´s http://www.bobcat.com/attachments/backhoe under specification is only M06 and 8811 there described.

Does anyone now these backhoe http://www.mini-traktor.dk/LW6-LW8.html
The LW7 looks good, the weight is 650 kg.

Here in Denmark we only have regular dirt, and I will use it for building, digging drainpipes down and things like that.

Thanks Triune.

Well thinks goes fast here in Denmark, today I found a Bobcat backhoe 924 (I think its about the same size as 609), and bought it, it ugly as hell, but it seems to be ok, and it was cheap, about 1700 USD. When I get the time I will repaint it.

But does anyone now or have data on this model?
