12 DIY Projects for your Tractor Mounted Backhoe

12 DIY Projects for your Tractor Mounted Mini Backhoe Excavator

Whether you are a professional landscaper, hobby farmer, or need to maintain a large area of land, you likely have a compact and/or subcompact tractor in your equipment inventory.  

As you know, these versatile tractors serve a variety of functions across many different use cases, with the mini 3 point backhoe excavator being perhaps one of the most versatile tractor implements available for small and medium sized tractors.

In today’s blog post we are going to take a look at a variety of ways professionals and hobbyists alike have put the tractor mounted backhoe attachment to use in some obvious (and sometimes not so obvious!) ways.  

Fortunately these days with the internet and technology at our fingertips we have the benefit of learning from others and in some cases avoiding their mistakes!  Below are a list of 12 carefully selected examples of DIY projects you can do with your backhoe attachment.

Each entry includes the tractor model used for the project (compact and subcompact), gross hp power output and pto hp rated to power the backhoe implement, and Victory’s suggested backhoe model based on the specs of that tractor.

The EMID-70 embankment mower arrived in a metal cage on a wood pallet. The mower and accessories arrived in good... condition.The assembly was easy and straightforward. After assembly, all bolts and connections were verified tight and the gearbox was filled with 80W90 oil and all fittings greased. Hooking up to the tractor was made easy using the two parking stands that come with the unit. Once attached to the three point hitch the hydraulic hoses were connected using the hoses and fittings supplied. Once the hydraulic system was filled and the air bleed out it was time to work. The mower was ran for about 10 hours in all positions from 90 degrees up to 30 degrees down with no problems. After mowing the field the mower was used to trim the limbs that were encroching on the field.Suggestions for the shipping cage are add a middle bar between the upper and lower part of the cage and use locking bolts on the assembly as a few were loose or missing. The mower and accessories had shifted and fallen out and came on a wood pallet added bt the freight company.read more

I bought an EMSD-56 Embankment Flail Mower Standard Duty. I pre-ordered it in February. This had to be one of the most... difficult years ever as China still had a zero covid policy. As soon as the mower was set to ship the port of Shanghai closed for over 2 months so delivery could not be made as agreed. I was offered a refund or an additional discount at that time. I opted for the additional discount. It took a while but finally the mower made it's way to me and it works fine. What I can say is that the team at this business is totally fair and extremely trustworthy. I would use them again for another implement.read more

Purchase of Flail mower was simple, arrived in good condition and assembly was straight forward. The only issue was it... was set up for Cat 2 rather than Cat 1 but that was handled quickly with a new set of pins which were mailed to me and arrived within 3 days. Mower has been used only once to mow about 2 acres and worked wellread more

I purchased the BX42S wood chipper. Shipping was quick and well crated. I've used it now for over 15hrs and it works... perfectly! I cleared woods for a motorcycle track and now I use this to clean up and help loosen up the soil with the mulch it creates. Well worth it!read more

The BX42S wood chipper was received in early March. The unit was packaged in a heavy cage to help prevent shipping... damage. After assembly I connected unit to my tractor and started using it. It has been able to handle any branches that I put into it up to about 4 1/2 inches. I would recommend this unit to anyone that needs a wood chipper.read more

I just recently purchased the MDWC1500 wood chipper from Victory Tractor for cleaning up around the overgrown fields of... our farm, arrived on time, setup was easy, very well built and rugged chipper! It has no problem chipping 3inch diameter brush. What a great investment for cleaning up around the farm! It did come with a damaged drive belt but a phone call to my local auto parts store and they had the belt in stock. For the price I highly recommend this machine to any small farm/homeownerread more
