I have a creek...

I have a creek that has filled in creating a wetland mess. can I use a Takeuchi 135 backhoe to clean out the channel? or will it just get stuck?

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the complete model and serial number of your machine?

I am thinking of renting one

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing this yourself? What have you tried so far?

I have used a front loader john deere but have to keep backfires on solid ground. ver slow

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Construction Equipment Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts.

my JD is a minimal full-sized, 20 yr old one and is very inappropriate for this job. We have hired a guy with a back hoe on a bobcat, but i am thnking of renting one. it is really wet and muddy. i don't want to end up just getting stuck. help!!!!i prefer to type. i have a speech difficulty, makes talking difficult. sorry
Mechanic: Wayne, Journeyman replied 5 years ago

Thank you for that

The Bobcat won't work, it will get buried

the JD was too heavy,that is why it got stuck, sinking

Takeuchi 135 backhoe will be best

I prefer to type also, little hard of hearing

So yes go with the 135
