 who makes the a good back hoe

I have a JD 4300 and am thinking of putting a back-hoe on it. It will have limited use after i finish my yard . I am torn between the JD model , I think it is model 48 or one of the 3 pt hitch models. woods and kelly are the local brands. are the 3pt as strong as the factory brands

 who makes the a good back hoe

I have a Rhino 85 and like it (similar in size and power to the JD 48).
Personally I wouldn't run a 3 point backhoe. I would check if some of the other Mfg.'s backhoes are availible with a mounting bracket so they can be mounted on the tractor similar to the JD hoe.
My 2 cents..

I used a 3ph aarps 8' on my 4400. It worked ok if I did not try to do very much. I was real concerned about the 3ph castings because of the forces involved.

I looked at a JD48 hoe all set up. Bought one in Dec 02(off season) one of the smarter and best moves I have made.

It is as soild as it gets with something that will come of or go on in under 10 minutes (15 when I'm not in a hurry).

The factory hoe will also hold its value.

My 48 has been a good solid unit, no problems so far. I like the frame mount feature and the easy off on system. Frank.

The 47 backhoe has been great on my 4310. The dealer told me the 48 would work as well but there were some areas that needed to be reinforced when going with the 48.

Ken What areas needed to be reinforced? I've tried to stay on top of the JD BH threads and must have missed this one.

TIA Harvey

Harvey, I'll have to dig up the email from my dealer on this (it's on another computer) but one of the areas that should be reinforced is the bolt holes on the rear rims. The dealer said that they have often seen those holes wallowed out on mid-frame JD's with 48 hoes. I guess they weld another ring around that area. When I bought my hoe they would have sold me a 48 but charged extra for the reinforcing work.

Thanks Ken I guess I do remember that comment somewhere back there.

I just left the thought with the lug nut problem on the very early models. As I recall one side had a problem and it was finially tracked down to overtapped holes or something like that.

The biggest grumble I have with the lugnuts is they are behind the little dinky wheel weights.

I use the hoe quite a bit and usually only use the stick to move the tractor. So the hoe usually has the tractor in the air moving fwd and side to side. I know that is not how the book says to do it. But I am comfortable with it. I have not seen any looseness between the tractor and hoe with all of the stress I put on it.

Thanks again Harvey

I have found that you have to be religeous about checking all bolted connections when using a backhoe. That means on the subframe and its various mounting points, as well as (apparently) the wheel lugs. The manufacturers of the hoes sometimes state that bolts must be tightened after every use.

I have also noticed that dealer-serviced tractors have wheels studs and lugs that are so tight that I need a 4-ft breaker bar to remove them! That's beyond the capability of my "earthquake" pneumatic wrench.
