I had this bright idea to buy an older International 3414 backhoe. That in turn brought me here after searching the internet for answers to my questions. It seemed like a GREAT deal when I bought it (I only paid $2600, so I think I did good?). Now I just have to figure out where the issues are and how to fix them! This site is awesome!

Thanks gang!!! I bought this backhoe for $2600 and it runs and digs! It does have quite a few leaks from all sorts of places and it looks like the backhoe portion is going to need a MAJOR rework to make it solid, but for the price I paid, I expect that.

I am sure you will be hearing a lot from me, Lol One advantage I do have is that we own a machine shop and 50% of the work we do is agriculture related and my Dad is really good with hydraulic cylinders when it comes to rebuilding them. I have a lot of work ahead!
