Bill's.. 110 Volt Backhoe
Bill needed to dig out the basement under his house. If the machine will run on batteries then it should run on 110 volt AC.
Bill used a 2 hp 1750 rpm ccw 115volt motor to run the hydraulic pump with a 12 gauge, 100 foot extension cord.
This machine will dig out basements as well as digging utilities.
Cool machine, Bill!!
Charles made some changes to the base and control valves.
Looks like this backhoe is destined to go on the back of a small tractor, it is even painted to match.
The backhoe can be ran on its own or attached to the back of a tractor.
John built a machine that could probably be considered art work as well as a digging machine. I think that I would build a second machine to dig with and leave this one to look at.
That gel seat looks very comfy.
I think this is what we all dream of....
Dan built a backhoe that will go on the three point hitch for the big digging. The backhoe can be ran separately for tight spots and greater production because two machines can be going at one time.
Check out that seat!
I love to see what people can do with a good design. I have used and abused the machine to come up with a durable, inexpensive and easy to build backhoe.
Seems to me that the builders put a little of themselves in the what they build. Thank you for the pictures!
Keep sending them to us!
Digs as good as it looks!

Welder Shane built his backhoe and added a hydraulic slew. It still turns 360 degrees.

Trinity based his design on the "Green's Backhoe". He Went above and beyond. Once you learn the basics. You can build almost anything.

Thanks so much for making the plans available at a reasonable price.
It really digs,it exceeded my expectations right away.
