How would you rate this back/bi routine?

Bear in mind some things I can't do due to lower back problems.  I've been training for many years but only seriously for about 3, stats are 6'0 age 27 15st 7lb, bodyfat is around 22%.  I usually work in anything above the 5 rep range, going for size, as I find training for strength gives me a lot of aches and pains.  
ALSO because of my work I can only train 3 out of 8 days.  so usually instead of a 3 days split over 7 days, I do the same thing but over 8.

Not on any gear.  Warmup sets not included.

Wide grip pullups
4x6

Romanian dead lift
3x8

 (use 8 rep range so I can go lighter, cautious about back)


seated cable rows
4x6

preacher curls 
3x8

(personally find 8 reps + lower weight easier to maintain form with curls)

Hammer curls
3x8

Do you think this is enough volume?  Should I be doing more in terms of drop sets etc?  Any input?

    I prefer traditional deadlifts, other than that looking enough as long as each set is Mike Mentzer intense!

    Easily enough volume mate. Proabably too much for my liking I have a quality over quantity approach and train to failure.

    Would cut the volume down to one or two "all-out" sets after warmup for each exercise rather than 3 heavy sets, can put more effort in and get more out of them IME
