John built a machine that could probably be considered art work as well as a digging machine. I think I would build a second MACHINE to dig with and leave this one to look at.
That gel seat looks really comfy.
Bill’s 110 volt Backhoe
Bill needed to dig the basement out 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 cw, 115 volt 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 too match.
The backhoe can run on its own or attached the back of a tractor!
different view of the same backhoe!
This is what gary had to say:
Thanks for making the plans available at such a reasonable price. It really digs, it exceeded my expectations right away!
Thanks, gary w
Welder shane built his backhoe and added a HYDRAULIC slew. it still turns 360 degrees.
John B’s Backhoe
Digs as good as it looks.
I think this is what we all dream of…
dan built a backhoe that will go on a three point hitch for the big digging. the backhoe can run SEPARATELY for tight spots and greater production. Because two machines can be going a one time.
check out that seat. excellent!
