This is one really nice looking backhoe/loader. I really like the choice of woods you used and the treads on the tires too. Great Job![thumb]

Another superb piece of work!  
Using solid timber for the body instead of layered 1/2" pieces makes all the difference when clear-finished. 
I have had these plans for a while now, looking at them now and again.  I had mulled over building one for my son-in-law for Christmas, (he drives one at his work), but I was put off by the unrealistic store-bought road wheels. 
You have shown me what a difference that REAL tractor wheels make, and I am now re-inspired. Thanks to your previous post on making wheels for tractors, I reckon I could give it a go now.

Thank you Wombat yes the wheel makes a different it was my plan to change the wheel when I brought the plans. I pleased you are re-inspired, go for it and surprise your son-in-law.

I'm now about to change the backhoe, I've put the arm with the name Cat on it the wrong side of the Swivel piece as in image 3 which means the bucket is not centered, not really a problem but look better. Ted

That is one fine piece of work and I agree the threaded tires make all the difference.
