    Default Backhoe sub-frame on a L2800, L3400

    Every so often I see a 3 pt backhoe on sale at an auction etc and I wonder how difficult it would be to fabricate one.

    Last spring at an equipment auction, a TaylorWay backhoe sold for $3400. The reviews on them don't seem to be half bad - particularly given the little use it would have on my property.

    I was looking under my tractor and was thinking that a subframe would bolt onto where the loader's frame bolts onto to begin with. Could not figure out where it would be able to bolt onto at the rear of the tractor.

    If anyone has a sub-frame on their L3400/L2800 for a backhoe, could you tell me where it hooks up to the tractor. If you've got a picture or two to give me an idea of what it looks like, I'd appreciate it very much.
    Current: Kubota M7040 cab, hydraulic shuttle, Kubota M20 loader (made by ALO), LandPride RCR1872 rotary cutter, Horst bale spears & forks, Woods HB72 box blade, Kodiak 7' rake, Walco cultivator, chain harrow, Meteor 74" pull style blower

    Traded: Kubota L3400, LA473 HST (300 hrs), and various attachments

    last month I bought a Woods backhoe that came with a subframe that I will not be using. It fits several Kubotas, but sadly, not the two models you list. I can tell you that you can go to Woods' website and download the manual for subframe kits. It shouldn't take long to sort through the kubota kits to find your application. Then you have detailed pictures and text to answer your questions.
