Can a bt603 backhoe be added to a bx23S, do they even sell a bx23s without a backhoe

The BX23s is sold only with a Backhoe.

Ok, I have an opportunity to buy a bt603 for fairly cheap and was wondering if I could find a used bx23s and put them together, but I guess that option probably won't work if they only sell them with the bx23S

I think the BX 2380 is about the same as a 23s. You would need to add a subframe as well as the hydraulics. It might work?

Chances are pretty slim to find a used BX23s that doesn`t already have a backhoe already with it.

I do find it a little odd that there is just a backhoe out there without a BX23s attached to it. But stranger things have happened.
Does it have a serial number on it? Might want to make sure it wasn`t stolen.

I've seen a number of BX backhoes for sale recently, guess people got tired of storing them once their projects were done? Seems they would be better off selling the TLB package and buying something else to me.

Or they're hurting for money and selling off part of it. If that's the case, hopefully both buyer and seller know what they're getting in to.


Seems like they'd get most of their money back though by selling the whole thing and buying just the tractor. People aren't always thinking clear when it comes to money though.

Yeah I bought it off a woman who was going to keep the tractor, she was selling a bunch of other attachments that I wanted but she wanted the backhoe to go with them. So I said okay, I'll figure something out, I actually have 2 people interested in buying to make custom mounts to there non bx23s, so we will see, I'm sure a good fabricator could come up with some brackets similar to factory
