This revised edition of a classic operation manual explains standard machine operations for the tractor-loader-backhoe. How to work with weight distribution, momentum, pitch of slope, and center of gravity.
Operating Techniques for the Tractor-Loader-Backhoe covers all the important issues of safety and maintenance.
