Anyone have loader and backhoe pictures?

I would like to see pictures of Backhoes installed on a large frame... or possible manuals. I have a backhoe from a New Holland L445 skidsteer... Its fairly big... but could possibly be modified to fit. Also, how were the hydraulics ran on a tractor with loader and hoe? two pumps? and where/how did they mount?

I saw a loader from a medium sized tractor the other day forsale... wondering if it would be easy to modify one to fit the bolens... perhaps narrow it along with the bucket?

Thanks,
Nick

In the back of my mind, I keep thinking that someday I will fab a duplicate of the Brantly backhoe. So I have collected pics of some with that in mind. Here are a few. With this particular example, I think that the mount has been modified, but I cannot say for sure. Brantly did use a subframe under the tractor to mount the backhoe, I have been told. It was not a 3-pt mount.

That helps alot. I have put some serious thought into eventually fabbing up the new holland unit we have setting here. It was made to fit a new holland L-445 skid steer. It works great.. but the skid steer in DOA. Its a really heavy unit, but compact. I would have to find a way to drive it though... not sure what type of pump and pressure it would require. The out riggers... it thing thats what they are called just drop straight down independently. They stabilized the skid steer really well... but it had a huge weight advantage over the bolens. I will have to post pictures sometime of it... along with my tractor. I have it 90% finished now.. just haven't had time to post pictures.

If you dont want to break your tractor build a sub frame...
I agree with that! In fact, I think that Brantly had a complete subframe under the tractor when both FEL and backhoe were supplied by them for the Bolens Large Frames.

Hi, the yellow ht20 with the loader and backhoe was mine, I will look on my old computer to see if I have any close ups the rear.

It did have three seperate hydro systems, one for the loader, backhoe and then the tractor's.

The backhoe did I have a sub frame, I will look for pictures of it also.
