The 7205s backhoe from Cub Cadet was the model 457. These backhoes have a subframe that hooks onto a bracket on the front of the transmission case, approximately under your feet, and to the top link (with a special high strength top link.

Most of CCs big implements were actually made by Woods Equipment. They can probably make up one that exactly fits your tractor if you don't mind buying new.

Note that if you do not have a loader you will need front weights and it will not work as well as when you have the loader lifting the tractor off the ground in the front.

Well, Cobraman, that is a pickle, ain't it? Cub Cadet's compact tractors were never as popular as Deere or Kubota and these CC models (7000 series) are all orphaned, although getting parts isn't too difficult, fortunately. So, not a lot of used inventory anywhere.

Calling a couple of local CC dealers MAY turn up a way for them to check inventory across multiple dealers; you're likely to have to find a 457 that's attached to a tractor and then get the dealer to let you buy just the 457. Plus freight from wherever.

That's why I mentioned Woods. They're in the business of making aftermarket backhoes to fit lots of machines and they're likely to be able to make the subframe and related parts that fits one of their backhoe models to your machine. A phone call to Woods or a dealer near you (see their web page at www.woodsequipment.com)will get you an answer.

On the other hand, maybe you just want to trade in your 7205 for something already with a backhoe & loader?

Oven ever been a big fan of backhoes on tractors, especially small tractors. They're just not hefty enough to stand that kind of abuse IMHO.

Do a little searching around and you'll find plenty of stories of CUT (compact utility tractors) snapped in half from the loads exerted on them backhoes.

Besides, they're a PITA to put on & off and spendy, even used.

For a mere fraction of the cost of buying one you could rent a mini excavator with the same capability and not have any of the problems.


Best of luck.

That Cub series was a Mitsubushi model tractor which the design was later sold to Mahindra. With some luck you may find a compatible one there. That size tractor is light in weight and you won't be able to dig much compared to larger units.

Mahindra has taken over the 7532 cub that I own.
If they have an equivalent 7205 model
youll be able to buy from them.
