The most it will be lifting is ” plate about 653 pounds.
My tractor just lifted 3/8” plate about 500 pounds.

I checked my hydraulic pressure and mine was low on my tractor I bumped it up and it was able the lift the 3/8 plate.

Here is the first part I cut out the 3/8 but I used a new cam software so I could start the cut from the center of the 30MM Circle (lead in).

But it made my 30mm holes cut 28mm the kerf width is not right. That is what the torch cuts out like a blade width. Once I have that adjusted, they will be back to 30mm.

About a year ago I made a quick connect for my backhoe. I have use it on many projects and it works well. At that time, I was cutting everything with a Porta band saw.

Now I have a 4x8 CNC plasma table a mag drill… I am making a new QC for my backhoe. I plan on selling these Quick connects. I almost have it ready.

I have the Jig for welding the sides up done. This is made out of 3/8" plate steel.
I am using the plasma marking feature to mark where to drill and weld the sides.

It is very close to being ready to reproduce. It will not be a high-volume item. You have to have a CB65 backhoe and more than one attachment.
I think next up will be a root ripper. A reason for getting my QC.



This allows you to change out backhoe attachments in usually under 60 seconds.

I changed my band-saw from 3 phase over to 120 volts. I ordered an over current and motor controller all in one. New 1HP 120 Volt motor.
I put all new blade bearings and bearing bushings on it. New blade new belt new belt and blade cleaner brushes

On the old controller cover I used my plasma table to cut out a place for the switch.
Tomorrow I will adjust the blade.


I worked on the bandsaw again tonight.
I added a shunt to the motor controller. This is an item that snaps to the side of the motor controlled. When it gets energize it turns off the switch.

The motor controller feeds power to the shunt then there is a switch that closes when the saw finishing cutting. So this is a self-collapsing cricket.

The saw completes the cut and I shuts its off. Them you must turn the motor controller back on to start cutting again. (It worked similar to this from the factory but I totally gutted and reworked it for 120 volts.)

I had to change the motor wiring to make it run CW and flip the blade inside out to make the rake got the right direction.
It is cutting good right now. I still need to do a few things but I can use it now.

I now have a root ripper for sale. I call it the Hammerhead.
This one is made with 1/2” steel plate.

4' x 8' 1/2" plate was 654 pounds.
My tractor could just handle this.

I am trying to get my powder coating setup. I sold my first quick connect and root ripper they will ship next week.

I finally put some castors on Band saw because it very heavy to move.
(Almost 1K pounds )

Glad to get it done.
