Wanted bobcat 709 backhoe with fold down stablizers. 12" or 18" bucket would be nice. Anybody even thinks of offering me one with the straight down stablizers I will smack you. Almost got myself killing working on a slope with one. I am in maryland. Willing to drive a to go get it. It will mount on my 2000 773g. If you got mounts to make it fit my machine. That would be great too. [email protected]

How do fold down stabilizers give you alot more stability over straight down? they don't sit THAT far out to provide you with more support do they?
I too welcome you to the forum.

The biggest advantage I can see is they are less likely to cave in the trench. However this is also a minus when working beside a house, etc.
The Jd 911 I had uses that type, but I turned around and resold it b4 I really used it. My 909 and 709 are the straight down and I have no stability complaints, Perhaps I'm missing something.
