I'll agree with the first part of that statement. However, for the last part it depends on what you have for a backhoe/subframe set-up. I've not put the backhoe on my Woods 4 point quick-attach subframe in something like 10 years, but I'm even as out of practice as I am, I could get it on in less than 15 minutes. Back when I was in practice, it was somewhere between 5 and 10 minutes to install. It took about 5 minutes to remove.The CUT backhoes hang too far off the tractor and you can't pick and carry much weight. They are too hard to put on and off.
That was always a concern with my backhoe. I run in hilly areas and on uneven ground. Even loading the tractor on a trailer took special care to keep things from scrpaing on the ground going up the ramp.It's heavy and rides low on the subframe so you have to keep that in mind when you move around because it's quite a way behind the rear wheels. When you go up a bank it can drag. Not a real issue unless you care about what it drags on.
