Backhoes with differential lock

8410 Views 10 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  Joasis
I used to have a Case 680CK (2WD) loader-backhoe that didn't have a rear diff lock. Traction was quite not impressive. I wondered why Case didn't put a locking rear diff on it, since it would have helped a lot.

By the way, is it only 4WD backhoes that have a locking rear diff? or has this been a feature of some 2WD backhoes as well?

More precisely, I would like to know at what model year Case begun to install a locking rear diff on the 580s.

I've seen several older 2WD farm tractors with locking rear diff, it's not 4WD but it does help.

Thanks!

Our 580D has locking rears.
I've operated 4wd case backhoes that didn't have a diff. lock.
Is it a 4WD ?

Not that you knew of. I'll bet they did!

I have only been on 5 differnt 580"s in witch all had dif. lock! 1981-2008 maybe I was lucky.

I supose it all depends what you order to be on the machine cab,lights,heater,air,wipers,ex.hoe.4wd,dif.lock.etc.
My 580 B had differential lock, right behind the throttle. 2 WD machine.
