    Default backhoe purchase

    Just purchased a used Bradco backhoe model 611 for my kubota 3710. It was used on a skid loader and I will need to purchase a subframe. Bradco doesn't recommend the 611 for my kubota due to the power of the hydraulics but I intend to use it occasionally and gently. No rocks in my area. Bradco does make a subframe to match the hoe. Bradco recommends 9-12gpm hydraulic output and the 3710 puts out 8 gpm. Does anyone know it the hydraulics will be sufficient or should I consider a pto pump?

    MChalkley has a Bradco 609 on his L4310 even though the Bradco specs call for more flow than his implement pump puts out. If you search on "Bradco" and then read the posts written by MChalkley, you will find some where he goes into great engineering detail as to how he hooked up the hoe to the tractor hydraulics. He commented that the slightly insufficient flow slowed down the hoe in some circumstances but that he found the combination suitable for his requirements (which are very exacting).
