Hello I love the backhoe, both the design and the workmanship. I have been looking at building one for a long time but could not find a design that I liked. Most of the other designs do not look like they would stand up to long term use. Your design is far superior to any others I have seen! What size plate did you use for the arms 13mm or 19mm? I would love to build a copy of your project if I could , would you be willing to sell a copy of your design or plans? I have a small farm and a tractor mounted backhoe would be very useful. thanks MELROG
Hi,

Many asked me for the plans. But like I said at the begin of this thread, I did not have designed the chassis but everything else. So the plans of the chassis don't belong to me. So I could share the plans of all the pieces of the backoe, but not those of the chassis. But there is an another problem is that I did not drew 2d plans. I only drew a 3d model and dxf plans to cut the sheets of steel. It was only for me that I made this. So I did not needed of 2d plans. I had all in the head. When I needed some precise information, I consulted my 3d model and I noted it on a piece of paper.

I don't have time to make a clean folder with all the plans of all the pieces of the backoe. But if you are interested, I can share the dxf plans that I used to order the laser cutted pieces and give you some indications like what cylinders to use (diameter of piston and stroke, etc...)

What ever you would be willing to share would be great. In my case I can import .dxf files into Rhino and I am sure others will be able to work with what ever information you can provide.

thanks,
Arvid

So this is the link to download a zip file containing my dxf plans for laser cut. All pieces are 8mm thick except those called "BRANCHE 1 COMPAS" and "BRANCHE 2 COMPAS" which are 15mm thick. All pieces are in S355NL steel. I give you the quantity later. Here it is late, I go to sleep.

Bye

Terrific build! Congratulations on a fine looking machine.
For those of you in North America, the CADPlans company offers plans and kits for stuff like this. I built a backhoe attachment for a walk-behind Bobcat over ten years ago now. Much cruder than this example but still running today with it's second owner. Some parts have been rebuilt but overall a very useful machine. As a source for plans and parts, I would recommend them. You will probably want to make similar modifications as this machine, but it gets you started.

Very nice Titou16

Any further details you have to share?

(My Sister and her Husband live in Grenord which I believe is just down the road from you)

Vraiment, très beau travail! Félicitations! Et ne vous excusez pas pour votre maîtrise de l'anglais, certains se limitent à l'utilisation d'une seule langue.... Salutations et merci pour le partage!

Merci beaucoup.

Je vois que vous êtes du Canada. J'y suis allé en mai dernier. Ça faisait plus de dix ans que je voulais y aller. Votre pays m'a toujours fait rêver et j'ai pas été déçu. Je me suis arrêté juste en face de chez vous, au canyon Saint Anne. J'ai passé 2 jours à Quebec, puis je suis parti en Ontario. Depuis que je suis revenu, je n'ai qu'une envie, c'est d'y retourner. J'ai fait presque 2500 kms et je n'ai encore rien vu tant c'est grand. Si je pouvais, j'y émigrerais.

Hello,

I came back on this topic to show you what my backhoe is really able to do. The very hardest work in its life.
