The photo is of a front-end loader, not a backhoe. Anthony Argyriou 22:26, 15 June 2009 (UTC)

Oops. You're right. I was looking for public domain photos and read the caption rather than looking closely at the photo. Oh well...I'll start front end loader. Howard C. Berkowitz 23:25, 15 June 2009 (UTC)
