I have a Ford 7000 tractor and want to add a backhoe and a loader attachment. My question is "will a Woods 1050 be a suitable backhole for general duty?"

Below is what Woods has on it.
It looks to me to be a good match for a Ford 7000. Will point out most people do not recommend a backhoe only being supported by the 3 pth.
What I have seen and know of Woods they make good products. ....

I agree with KT, Woods has made good stuff for a long time, but any brand three point hitch type backhoe is real hard on the three point hitch of any tractor.
Woods may offer a subframe type backhoe that usually uses the thre pint hitch arms to lift the hoe into place then it is fastened to the subframe. The subframes I'm familliar with stay on the tractor without affecting the use of other attachments. ....

I sent Woods an email, and they said this model 1050 only comes with a 3 point attachment. Someone on the list said they build their own frame attachement. If he made plans, please share. ....

JC;
You may be remembering a post I made a couple years ago about a neighbor building a subframe to mount a Kelley three point hoe on an "M" Farmall.
His original plan was to put the three point hoe on his Faermall 656 with a three point hitch. A 656 is a row crop tricycle tractor about the same size as your 7000 only less horsepower. He did mount the Kelly hoe on the three piont of the 656 but soon was tearing the three point arms up. His soulution was to buy an "M" Farmall tricycle tractor, build a subframe from some heavy channel that went under the rear axles of the M forward to the side frame of the M just behind the front wheels. I don't remember how he fastened the hoe to the subframe but it became a permanent mount, he's never taken it off that I know of.
I can see a similar subframe system that you or a welder friend could build that would use the three point lift arms of the 7000 to lift it into place till some pins were insetrted to take tha load off the three point lift arms to be a subframe mount. One thing about a tractor similar to your 7000 is you have lots of room under the rear axles to mount something like this instead of a compact tractor with hardly any clearance underneath to do something like this. This worked fine, yours could too.

I searched the Woods site and found the plans for the 750 hoe mounting frame for my JD tractor. It wasn't easy, but it was on there. It converts the 3pt mount to a removable subframe mount, like the Deere hoe had ....
