 detachable backhoe jd855

I have a JD 855 with the detatchable backhoe. The unit is very easy to install and remove after you have done it a few times. There are two pins (bolts) at the mid point of the tractor that connects the subframe to the tractor. The rear of the subframe slides into a "horseshoe" type receiver at the rear of the tractor. Then there is a third pin that attaches the platform support to the stationary point of the three point hitch (not the link arms). The backhoe works well for light landscape work, planting/removing small shrubs light drainage work, it will not handle any heavy construction work, but then again it is only a small tractor. Other than that the unit works well for what it was intended to do and goes on and off the tractor real easy.

 detachable backhoe jd855

In addition to a suitable hoe, I'd check dimensions for maneuvering and the hoe's reach.

I imagine that few tractors can drive between the graves in many places so you'd have to dig from one end or drive around to the other (which probably wouldn't make a grounds supernatant too happy).

It would take a pretty big tractor and hoe to dig a long enough 6' trench from one point and the grave would have to be trenched if you can't drive around to the other side. You'd have to dump along the grave sides. Filling graves probably is customarily done by hand but if the tractor is going to do it, I'd figure out how I'd backfill dirt dumped along the sides. Few tractors could be maneuvered perpendicular to the middle of a grave in many cemeteries.

The last few times I've worked on grass I put down lumber so the stabilizers and loader bucket blade didn't dig in, and I dumped on lengths of vapour barrier. There's a real problem using a tractor to backfill without messing up a lawn.

I have a 755 w/ the #7 backhoe and it is a good little machine but do stress little. I buried a 1000 gal oil tank this past summer and it took quite a while to dig the hole (but it sure beat doing it by hand). Depending on what you are going to do with it and what type of soil (i.e. rocks) you have it may work to get the larger bucket - I have the 13" which is only .75 cubic foot. You can do the arithmetic as to how long it will take to dig your hole. Cycle time is pretty slow and slower the deeper you go. By the time you get to the bottom of a 6' hole, round trip cycle time is getting around 20 seconds. It starts to feel like you are using a teaspoon. I don't want to leave the wrong feeling - I love the little machine but you need to have the correct expectation of what it can do. Also, it is not compatible with the mid-mount mower which means you will be jockeying them on and off if you need both. I will e-mail scanned specs, since I can't post them here.
