    Default adding a backhoe

    I have a MF 1225 and plan on adding a backhoe attachment, it's the Jinma BH6600 looks well built and the price is right. It does not come with a seating tower as far as I can tell, so what do I do for seating? Do I add a rear facing seat behind the exsisting seat? or can you get some type of swivel mech for the exsisting seat but it would still have to move back some how? any one have this problem, if so any photos would be great.

    Thanks,
    Steve

    any way you could fab up a lil platform to sif on that perhaps bolted or sliped into a holder on the rear of the tractor? something you could sleave, and remove when not using the hoe?

    post a pic of it on yer machine.

    here's pics of a woods hoe i hung on an old ford 850.. i had to do a lil fabbing.. and here are some in progress pics. but you can see how the seat setup works..
