Attachment to pull a drag or pull trailer
Has anyone built an attachment for their backhoe to pull a drag/cultivator or trailer. I know you can weld a receiver to the top of your loader bucket to position a trailer, but I would like to be able to toe behind my backhoe.

Re: Attachment to pull a drag or pull trailer
Towing is not recommended using the backhoe bucket, but if you want to do it, Perhaps you could weld an attachment to the boom so it will clear the bucket when folded. This would be right close to the swing cylinders but in back of the boom. That would be the strongest point and would be pulling from the boom swivel pin and frame, NOT much chance of warping the boom or dipper stick that way. It should end up being about the same height as a regular tractor drawbar by doing it that way.
You would likely have to be careful when folding up the boom and bucket as it might hook it if you brought everything up prior to folding the bucket.2010 LS P-7010C 20F/20R gear tractor & FEL, 2009 Kubota B 26 TLB, RTV 900 Kubota, 2012-20 ft 12k GVW trailer, 2011- 52" Craftsman ZTR mower, 54" John Deere 332 lawn tractor, 5.5HP rear tined walk behind tiller, 7 foot bush hog, 8 foot landscape rake , 8 foot 3 PH disc, 2 row cultivator, 350 amp CC/CV AC/DC welding machine and a shop full of tools that I spend more time looking for than using.
