    My B26 backhoe is a piece of cake to take off, maybe 2 minutes to get the pressure off so you can slide 2 pins out then pull forward a foot or two and lower the backhoe to the ground and relieve all the pressure (best with engine off) then uncouple the hose from the backhoe, loop the supply back to the return on the tractor. Then you have to install all the lift arms which takes longer. Getting it back on is a little more difficult to get it all aligned so you can back into the slots in the lower part of the sub-frame and it has to be absolutely level and square to do it. I took it off and put it back on when I bought it to see how to do it and it hasn't been off since. It is GREAT to have two tractors so you can keep the hoe on one and do the 3 PH thing with the other.

    When I took the PHD off the first time (and only time so far), I drilled it into the ground a few feet, then hooked the boom with a strap and pulled it up under a cross member on an old cattle pen my dad built many years ago. Unfortunately - for future use - the old cattle pen is in the way of the vineyard so it'll be coming down soon. As for backhoes (and FEL's for that matter) - I'm pretty sure I'd consider those reason enough to buy a second (or third) tractor...

    Back when I looked at Mahindra, I took one look at their backhoe attachment setup and imagined it would be a nightmare to attach.

    You just backed up, screwed it in a foot or two and left it? Utter simplicity. But for progress sake let's make it more
    complicated....sigh. Lots of folk have dirt or gravel floors in sheds, sure could work for me.
    Maybe it's because you are from Wise County?
    I placed mine outdoors, dont think I could use valuable space under a roof for a PHD. It is easiest way I've found to do it. I had a neighbor put a piece of cement pipe about 10" diameter in the ground to drop his bit in, that work good too.

Backed up, got the toplink on, then ease forward and manage to get the pins in after a few up and down trips to see when holes line up.
    All of this to say I probably spent thirty minutes or so trying to hook the durned thing up
    Next time connect the hoses, and use the outriggers and bucket curl to position it.
    If you don't have a cab, put a elbow on a short piece of PVC pipe, use it on the lever to raise and lower the lift arms while standing where you can see when it lines up, and push it over the pin. Do the fixed arm first, then crank the side link to line up the the other side.

    Worked for me, YMMV.

    They are not all that way.
    I have a subframe mounted backhoe. It is easy to remove/install.
    I can remove it in 5 minutes and install it in 10. (no helpers needed)

    Ive been thinking of a BH for my branson. The dealer told me I would need a sub frame for the branson BH. Is a sub frame necessary with a 3point back hoe?

    Well I must be retarded cuz I don't know what a subframe is. The first time I hooked the backhoe up I did use a piece of pvc pipe, but from the seat I reached down and moved the three point arm over in position. The biggest thing for me is I can't see the when the holes line up so I get up and down numerous times til I get it right. I have four cinder blocks, two on top of the other two with a couple 2 x 4's. When I get thru with the tractor I back up over blocks and ease it down to get the pressure off. Not sure what was meant by Mahindra backhoe attachment setup, its just another three point implement. Pump on pto so no hoses to attach.

    A subframe is critical on most tractors because it protects the tractor from breaking in half!!
    The Hoe on the rear puts a lot of strain on the center of the tractor that it is not designed for so the subframe adds strength and removes shock to the middle.

    Mine had a PTO pump, back up close, put the pump on, use the backhoe hydraulics and the PVC pipe on the lift lever to align the lift arms and the solid top link.
