    Hey guys. I just signed a target , and I already got a 12 ft pushbox
    I was planning on purchasing a 1978 case 580 backhoe, however I was just informed in 2x4.
    I'm a little concerned that its not gonna handle the box plow .
    Any opinions ?

    I push with a 2 wheel drive and it pushes a 10 ft box with no problem but I think my machine is heavier than a case
