 Backhoe Subframes for GL3130 (Kelley 56)

Hi, I have a GL3130. I guess I didn't do as much research ahead of time as I should have and I bought a 3pt backhoe (Kelley 56) on ebay. Seems to be a very nice backhoe but my Kubota dealer strongly advises not using it without a subframe. He actually called Kelley for me- but found that they do not make a subframe for that (very old) model. So now I'm stuck with a rather expensive yard orniment unless I eather try to fabricate something myself or try to sell it. I like the backhoe, so I really want to try fabricating something myself- but don't know where to begin. Does anyone have drawings, measurements, specs for a Grand L3130 subframe? Has anyone tried to make one themselves- either from scratch or customizing one made for another BH? Do you know where I might be able to find a subframe for sale (reasonably) that I could modify? Or do you think I should just plant flowers in the bucket of my new yard orniment?
Thanks,
Brian

 Backhoe Subframes for GL3130 (Kelley 56)

Brian, your Kubota dealer is so right, your 3130 is a nice tractor, please don't destroy it with a 3 pt. backhoe. I don't know how far you want to go in saving the hoe, but I will tell you the tale of a neighbor of mine in your same situation and how he solved it. He like you bought a used Kelly, I don't know the model number, to put on the 3 pt. hitch of his Farmall 656 farm tractor, (65 HP.). After he mounted it he was acared that it would rip the three point or worse off the back of his tractor. It is a nice hoe, very little wear so he did want to save it. He took an "M" Farmall, (45 HP), built a heavy sub frame that extends from the backhoe under the rear axles of the "M" to the channel iron tractor frame along side the engine. he runs the hydraulic with a PTO driven pump. He did a real nice job, but this is a permanent installation, it don't come off the tractor. Pretty slick deal, he does nice work. He never would tell me how much it cost him to buy the "M", the steel,(the main frame is 10 inch channel) and all the hydraulic plumbing, etc. cost. He like myself is still of 100% German bloodline, and we Germans are NOT stubborn, we are determined at any cost to prove it can be done. Frank.
