    Default Is a Woods 750 backhoe too big for a Kubota B2100?

    I have the opportunity to get a 12-15 year old Woods 750 at a really good price but cannot find any specs online. The owner thinks you need 40HP. It does not appear "large" but no idea of weight, etc. It is a 3pt how, so next is trying to figure out if a sub-frame mount is available or can be fabricated.

    Apparently it is too old for Woods to keep all the docs on their web site, I found one item but it does not have the info I need. If anyone has any knowledge, I'd appreciate it.

    My tractor is a late 90's kubota B2100 HSD
    Thanks!

    1. Generally it's to big, but if your careful it might work, then again it might break your tractor.
    According to Kubota Tractor Corporation - Prior Tractor Models your tractor puts out 19HP Gross.

    2. Do a search on woods 750, there's several threads.

    3. A subframe will run over a grand new.

    In my opinion the 750 is too big and too heavy for your tractor. I doubt you can find a new factory made subframe to mate the 750 to your tractor. A subframe could most definitely be made, it just depends on how deep your wallet is, or at least how handy you are at metal fab. If you go the custom route...... perhaps the best option would be to buy a factory subframe for a BH70 (if one is available for your tractor) and have the backhoe side of it modified to fit the 750. As a wild guess I'd expect it to double the cost of a thousand dollar subframe.

    We have a neighboring dealer who sold one to a customer that is not happy at all. It is to heavy on the rear of the tractor with or without subframe. He has been having rear axle problems from it.

    I had a 750 on a Yanmar 155D. Worked fine, hung it off the 3 pt, absolutely no problems other than the front end was light, very light. Worked it hard, and it just kept going. I now have it on a B7800 with a reinforced 3 pt bracket.

    I even have a spare manual.

    I'm looking at a Woods 750 for my L3710. Woods support says they won't give me a yay or nay on sizing because it depends on the beefiness of the support link.

    You said that you re-enforced your 3PT? How did you do that? Got any pics?

    Your 'L' has the same weight-carrying capabilities as my L4200, and I carry a Woods 9000 around like nothing. OTOH, even though your 3pt can pick up twice the weight of that backhoe, I'd put it on a subframe mount. My backhoe can throw my tractor around like so much tissue paper - I think it could tear the 3pt right off the back of a machine. I'd think the 750 would be similar.

    I've been running a Woods 750 on an L3710 for eight years now. I've used it for digging, craning even pulling logs and have had no problems at all. I do have a subframe though.
