Default My backhoe attachment.

At some point after my wife’s horses are gone (they are getting pretty old.) I will probably put in geothermal HVAC. I would like to be able to dig most of it.
I have been watching for a backhoe attachment in my price range. Saturday, I drove a couple hours away to pick up one.
It needs a little work one hose is leaking and it may need a couple other things.
But I saw it in action digging so I know it works.
It is an old Woods 650 it has its own hydraulic pump that connects to the tractors PTO.

I looked at building my own backhoe attachment but I would have much more money in it than this one.



I sent Woods a message asking for a manual and within a couple hours they emailed me the manual.
Very nice, this will help me setup it up.

I am picking up a quick hitch from Harbor freight. with a 20% off coupon. It can handle up to 2,000 pounds.
This will help move the seat of the backhoe farther away from the back of my tractor. This is needed and it should make it simpler to get on and off the tractor.

The HFT Quick Hitch is on my list of "things I need someday" when I get serious about using my 3pt hitch tools. At this point, I have a single moldboard plow, and a 60" finishing mower.

If you haven't read many of the reviews for the Quick Hitch, it's in the reviews that you find the part number for the "adapter bracket" needed to match some equipment that doesn't precisely follow the standard for the top hook. There's also some comments about what lower pin sizes have less slack.

Ah. A new toy. Nothing more fun than getting the backhoe on the tractor and having a good trenching day.

The horses, in their retirement, would probably like to have a nice pond to stand beside?

Careful with that 3 point mount backhoe. They have been known to break tractors in half. Many smaller tractors arent beefy enough to take the stresses and also why many of them have large steel kits to allow a backhoe to mount and take the stress instead of the tractor.
