    Default engine hoist to manipulate backhoe frame

    Anyone ever use an engine hoist to move a frame-mount backhoe?

    I'm thinking about getting one and putting all terrain casters on it. Extend the side stabilizers a bit and add a load leveler so I can move my backhoe on gravel.


    Thoughts and suggestions appreciated.

    If it is a smaller size I think that would work.
    How about a old running gear from a wagon?
    You could flip it over, making theframe closer to ground.
