    Default Anyone have a Woods BH70-X on a tractor with 42 Hp at the PTO?

    I've had a kubota B7610 tractor and a BH70-X for years. LOVE the backhoe.

    I recently bought a Kubota M4700, it looks like it has 2 sets of rear remotes.

    Wrote Woods and they sell a bracket for (~$200) that will allow me to mount the BH70-X on it as a 3 point (need a heavier duty Top-link) , but they don't have a sub-frame for the M4700/BH70-X. They do have a subframe for a BH90-X.
    Woods advised to get a BH90-X.

    I imagine a BH90-X will cost $10,000 or more. So I am pursuing the $200 solution.

    Does ANYONE have a similar setup? Small backhoe on a medium tractor?

    Note when I got the backhoe most people told me I was getting a backhoe way to big for the B7610

    I have never been a fan of large hoes on small tractors, although I am in the minority. I found a BH80-X and mounted it on my Ford 3 cylinder 4000 which is 52 PTO HP and probably weighs 5-6000 lbs without the hoe on it. So far I have been able to dig anything I want to dig, and the hoe doesn't drag the tractor around. If the 70 fits your needs and is paid for there's not much reason to spend the coin just so you can own a 90. Check and see if Woods builds a subframe for the M4700 and a BH80-X. The 70 and 80 main frames have identical subframe mount points. You may have simply not asked the right question.

    Actually I'm pleased if the $200 adapter plate will work. I think most of their subframes run $1,000 plus.

    I have a BH80X my manual say parts are interchange with BH70X . I have mine on a Kioti DK 45 SE. It has a subframe so you might look for bracket to mount BH80X also.

    Just sayin' that a subframe mount is preferable regardless of the size relationship between tractor & hoe. Mine does happen to be a 3pt mount just like you are considering.
