The previous owner bought the machine brand-new in 1978. With the backhoe mounted, it is very back-heavy. He said that a front counterweight was available for it but he didn't buy it. He filled the front bucket instead whenever he used the backhoe.

being rear heavy was very common it only takes a few min to remove the hoe but then with the loader it will be tail light, I agree the bucket being full will counter the hoe weight still a very handy machine even with those faults

Thanks for the reply. Have you heard of anyone building a rear counterweight to attach to the backhoe mounts when the backhoe is removed?

yes we had several people here build ripper units that latched right in the backhoe mounts it would be no real difficult issue to build a weight the same way other than mounting it up one would need a lift/hoist or loader to lift it in to place
