Buying a new L 3830 with 723 loader and want Kubota backhoe. I had rear hyd installed. Which hoe would be better (BL4690B or BH90. Is the BH90 hoe cheeper since it is not self contained. My dealer is trying to sell me the smaller BL4690B hoe, but I was thinking since I have rear hyd go with the BH90. Is this hoe to big for A L3830 Any help before I buy would be greatly app. Thanks,Kevin

I don't waiver in my response, BH90! Don't hesitate well, better built machine. The BH 90 uses a frame mount simuliar to the L-48-35-39 and the B-20-21 hook up. Does that say anything? To the second part of the question, yes it is large enough for it.

Thanks for the info. How hard is the BH90 to mount and remove. I use my tractor with 3 point hitch att. does the lift arms have to be removed to put it on.Just trying to see the difference in the two Kubota hoes, since my dealer did not know. I want the bigger hoe if it is simple to remove so I can mount my other attachments. Thanks,Kevin

I don't do it that often to help much but it can be done the first time in less then ten minutes and after that it seems to be around five minutes with knowledge of the pieces and the proper placement of the pieces. The chassis frame work makes it so much stronger to work with.

I had the same questions and choices when I bought a BH for my 3130. I chose the BL4890 on my dealers advice and because I would be switching from the hoe to 3 pt implememnts often. I also liked the self contained pump better than using the tractor pump. If I had to do it again, I would choose the BH90, not that the BL4690 is a bad BH. The BL4690 is everything I expected and more but I would really appriciate the extra reach and sturdyness of the BH90 and I dont switch back and forth between implements as much as I thought I would. Im still a fan of a PTO pump though.

That is a good hoe and it sounds like a competitive price. In my experience, there is no good reason to get the PTO hydraulic pump for any modern CUT. Your tractor has excellent built-in hydraulics and you should be able to operate that unit at little more than medium engine speed.
Adding the quick disconnect hoses is less expensive and more flexible than paying extra for PTO (self-contained) hyd. pump.

The other good part of it is it keeps the oil in the system as fresh as in your tractor. We from time to time see the contained system ruined from moisture.

Thats exactly one of the reasons why I like it. Better to ruin my BH system than the whole tractor. Heres the scinario, the BH sits static for long periods of time collecting moisture in the lines, fittings and cylinders and dirt from the fittings and cylinders then plug it into the tractor system.
I know, "just how much contamination is a closed system going to get". Probably not much but if it does get some, it wont be transmitted to the tractor.
I figure my hyd pump gets a good workout on a regular basis running the loader and the only thing I run off the PTO right now is the BH, I spread the wear out a little.
Ive only owned a tractor for 1.5 years so im no expert by any stretch. These are just things I tried to take into consideration and could be (probably) wrong on one or more of these points.

I prefer runnig straight off the tractor (no PTO pump)
This is how I look at it. No PTO pump to hook up or buy.
Backhoe sits for long period of time possibly drawing in moisture, I plug it into my tractor, fresh oil is pumped into the backhoe. The tractor gets run on a regular basis getting the transmission oil good and hot quickly cooking out the moisture it drew in from the backhoe, so my tractor transmission and backhoe are both now moisture free.
