welcome gtguy.
The cad loader people have plans for a backhoe you could build off a heavy gt. Also ironmanfabrication.net has a cat 0 backhoe coming out shortly.

thanks for the info. im a welder by trade and i was thinking on how it would be to build one to use around home. it occured to me that as much as ive seen on here that you guys have probably already built it and maybe could shorten the learning curb lol.

I think the pf engineering link is a great source for plans. I'm waiting till I have some money but I plan on building one at some point.

I like the design and it looks like cub made it for the type of machine but they would put a bucket that would only fit a gallon of water, but yours is the perfect size. Cool looking.

this is a really well usable idea backhoe's are handy and not to mention a heck of alot of fun to work with here's a thought for you maybe you can play with the idea of fron mounting one like on a ditchwitch that can be removed.

We drove to PF Eng. ( I'm to cheap to pay for shipping) and looked at the machine and came home with the plans for the hoe and the loader.:fing32:

This is how far weve gotten, steel is ready to weld. But no coin for the Joysticks and Pistons etc. :(
