Skid-Steer Backhoe
"This backhoe for my skid steer loader is one of the handiest attachments on our farm," says Ronald L. Hissong, Mercersburg, Penn. "It consists of the last 5-ft. section and 12-in. bucket from an Arps backhoe, fitted with a fast-attach frame to fit my loader. It can be hooked up or removed in less than one minute.
"The bucket cylinder is plugged into the loader auxiliary hydraulics. This combination makes a handy unit to dig ditches, excavate small areas, dig out bushes, and clean shrubs from fence rows.
"The loader's four-wheel drive, along with the bucket's powerful cylinder, gives it remarkable power to dig out rocks and uproot smaller trees."
