I've seen the TYM stuff at the annual Farm Machinery Show, and they look to be decent.
As far as price, backhoes typically go new for $1000/foot of digging depth. Based on your purchase price and all that was included for a 50HP, you did very well, I think.
I recommend finding out who your closest good TYM dealer is for service beyond your reach, and for parts. I'd also get a list of filters, and get online and get 2-3 sets of them to have on hand, and consider a full machine fluid change.
Don't forget to make sure the diesel has been properly treated for cold, lest it turn to Jello.

Set up a 3 point weight box and use it when doing loader work. None of those little tractors have enough lead in their ass to do any actual work with a loader. Without rear weight if you're lucky you will just spin out instead of laying it on it's side.

Thanks all for the ideas. Further checking the rig, the tractor has 750 Hrs on it
and 2014 vintage. There is a repair on the front of the frame but it looks
pretty sturdy professional looking weld. I'll make pics of it later. It'll have an
easy life with me as I'm not in the business to dig/push dirt around 24/7
anyways. Although she'll have a bit of work leveling the ground for the future
garage.

Bubba, now that we're all unloaded & settled in, do you have any objections to parking your tractor thread with the other tractors & such?

Well, it's not so much of a need as it just seems reasonable to make a modest effort to keep related things more or less together.

Ron worked pretty hard last time he remodeled, trying to get the classifications to make sense and I had some input on it. One thing I suggested was to combine Welding Equipment with Welding Processes because every time someone bought a new tig machine he'd post about it in Processes and every time someone wanted to show of his new skills he'd post it in Equipment.

There's really no way to win at this kind of battle and I really don't want to be much of a "moderator" because really, no one wants a moderator and I really don't want to make a career out of annoying everybody anyway.
All of which reminds me that Old Red Ford's shop thread started out as a discussion with Tim soliciting advice about possibly building a shop. Then he bought the property & started assembling equipment and a plan but now he's actually, slowly building the shop. We're going to maybe need to talk about when to move that out of Off Topics to "Shops" pretty soon.

I built a weight rack for the three point hitch on a buddies NH compact tractor. It uses suitcase weights, his dad had a bunch of them from two broken tractors, one IH and one of them was an Allis. Built the rack with feet on it so it would set upright for easy hook up. IIRC it usually carries about 1200lbs for plowing snow and less when doing dirt work.
