 Rigid Toplink for 3 point hitch Backhoe

I need a rigid top link for the used hoe I bought. I can't find anyone who sells them. The hoe manufacturer doesn't make them anymore and no parts left. Anyone have a diagram or good pic so I can see what I need.

I would use the adjustable link. Adjust it until you find the proper length to have the hoe frame vertical.

Measure the center of the pins. get 2 ends from tractor supply and have a solid link welded in.

Me, I'd just use the adjustable link.

I've been looking at it and think I can mount pins on the lower frame, change my top pin for a longer one and use two adjustable links like stated to mount from bottom tom top. I think this might work.

Love to see a picture of the hoe when you are done as I am interested in doing something similar.

OK, but not sure when that will be. My heated garage isn't available to work in this winter. The hoe is still on the trailer as I have to bring the Foton with the loader home from the lake property to be able to lift it off.

Well changed plans Bob on CTOA sent me a diagram. I cut a 1 1/2" x 3" x 6 1/2" block and drilled two 13/16 holes to match attachment and welded 1 1/2 x 1 1/2 solid steel with 1/4" steel gussets. I need to hook up the hoe to get the length. I went to do that and I can't reach far enough with loader to get it off the trailer - will have to think about this. The guy put it on with a big Case loader and I thought I'd be able to get it off with mine - WRONG!

Can you not tow the trailer to a neighbor who has the ability to lift the backhoe nearer to the side of the trailer? Or can you using your tractor lift one end at the time on to say pipe to slide it to the side of the trailer?

I am assuming it is loading with lift pins turned to the side or front of the trailer so backing onto the trailer to hook up is not an option?

What ever you do be careful, lot of weight above you.

I don't know anyone who has anything big enough to lift it off. It's totally sprawled out with the lift pins toward the front lower than the trailer rails. I have a neighbor who has an 8n with a loader I'm thinking maybe we can get on both sides and chain lift it. My concern there is he's 90 years old and we're going to have to be moving together. I know he won't let anyone else operate his tractor. Probably a chance I'm going to have to take.

I sure like to do everything I can to spend as little as possible.... but I think you would be better off letting your 90 year old neighbor sit on his porch in peace and not get involved in this endeavor.....you do not need the guilt of hurting him...

There are lots of guys that can do what you need for little bucks but not free ... Land clearing guys have trucks with little cranes that could do it...Tree guys often have cranes.....those two are probably the easiest other than an excavation company

This isn't your normal 90 year old. This is a very active guy - still takes care of his property himself. A month ago his tube was leaking calcium on his tractor and he was going to take it off himself ( that's a heavy tire). He would have but I stopped him and hauled it on my car hauler down to goodyear. I had to talk him into doing it the easy way. He will actually enjoy helping.
