    :)

    I have a Case 580. Not the best loader/backhoe but is runs and starts. So I am going to get a box for it.

    Any thoughts on boxes ??

    I have no idea which or what size.

    Or how much to pay.

    Or if I should just stay with the bucket ??

    Thank you for your thoughts.

    How much do you want to pay.......12 footer is probably best for that machine....

    I run a 12' Protech on case 580, wouldn't go any bigger with rubber edge.

    Well if I could find a good used workable one for say a grand ?

    But I prefer finding someone throwing one away ;)

    12 footer how high or tall should it be ?

    A grand won't buy you much. I picked up one decent used one this fall for $2,200 and one last week for $2,800. I believe new they are around $4k.
