Just got a Backhoe

Just brought home a 1959 Massey Ferguson Backhoe.  It is pretty much a basket case; needs a lot of work. Restoring it will be a long term project.

Why do I need a backhoe you may ask.  The answer is I don’t play golf.  So I need some other time waster. Some people like working on old cars. I like old tractors.

Of course I don’t need a backhoe but it seemed like a good idea at the time.
