Hi,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
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...)
