    Default Backhoe for B7610 3 or 4 point

    I will be getting a backhoe for a kubota B7610.

    Probably Woods BH6000. Should it be 4 point or 3 point?

    I am guessing that the 3 point is more convenient to take off
    but the 4 point is stronger.

    The Woods Groundbreaker has an excellent 4 pt. hookup that I think is one of the best in the market. To me, going with a 3pt hook up on a small frame CUT is just asking for trouble.

    Do you have MMM?
    If you do you may need the 3PH?
    The 4 point may be easier to mount than the 3PH type. I have a 3PH BH. It is a pain to install. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

    I have a B7610 w/B4672A BH. Yes, it's a 3pt. I considered the Woods BH6000, but found that the kubota specs were slightly better, and the price was only a couple hundred different. I'm also of the notion that resale of the B7610 will be higher with Kubota BH and FEL. I don't have a MMM, and I've not removed the BH yet, so can't comment on those issues.

    Oh, I'd say you dug a big hole and it magically disappeared?

    I would expect a subframe mount for a Woods BH6000 on a B7610 would be virtually identical to the subframe mount for my BH7500 on my B7800. It is easier to get the backhoe on and off than the 3PH implements. 5 minutes, no sweat.

    And stronger, most definitely. The subframe spreads the forces of the backhoe over a much larger and stronger part of the tractor.

    John,
    That's just amazing, how'd you ever guess? [img]/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] [img]/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] [img]/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
    Surprised kubota doesn't mention the magically disapearing stickers as a feature. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
    Cheers, edski
