 BL4690B stabilizer bar and other BH ??

Hi everyone,
Im in the market for a backhoe for my L3130. Im considering the Kubota BL4690B but I havent been able to see one or see exactly how it mounts, specifically the tubular stabilizer bar, thats what the salesman at the Kubota dealer called it. I suspect its more of a limiter to keep the 3PH arms from raising. He didnt know too much about how it worked so Im coming to the experts. Anyone got any good closeups of it or know exactly what its for.
I know theres lots of discussion in the search about the good, bad and ugly of 3PH BHs but Im still finding it hard to decide exactly what it is that I should have since I cant seem to find any of the options Ive been looking at (Woods, Bushhog, Bradco and Kubota) mounted on a tractor in my area. Heres a description of my needs. Im starting up a parttime landscaping bus. I will be doing occational trench and footer digging and wouldnt mind digging graves if I can get that work. I dont have or plan to have a belly mower. Im doing mostly landscaping work with it so I will be switching the BH for other 3PH implements often. Ive read that Woods and Bradco subframe BHs dont require the removal of the 3PH arms. Im open to using either the tractor juice or PTO power but prefer the PTO pump.
Thanks, Ray

 BL4690B stabilizer bar and other BH ??

I got to see a BL4690B mounted up yesterday. Im impressed. Just for everyones information, the limiting bar sits laterally across the lower arms and is designed to lock the arms into the lowest position. The top link of the BH is massive. I sat on it and looked at it for about 15 minutes, I didnt get a chance to operate it though, and it seems at least as sturdy as the New Holland subframe mounted BHs that I was checking out the day before. My dealer strongly recommends the BL, even over the BH90, to most of his customers with compact tractors. He said the BH just feels unstable (when moving or transporting the tractor around) on all but the biggest compacts.
Anyway, I believe Ive made the decision that the 4690 is the way for me to go. I know there are alot of other options out there but I like the idea of sticking with a Kubota product and I know there is alot of support for the BH90, which also appears to be a very good BH, just a bit much for my needs and if I decide later on that I need the BH90, I can sell the BL to anyone with a 3PH and get the 90. Maybe Ill take the $1700 difference and buy that PHD and rear blade Ive been needing.
