Added Utility for my Backhoe

Recommended Posts

powermax_paul
A few months back I was looking for a Powermax mounted earth auger and never found one. I ended up buying n Ardisam one man powerhead and the auger for it. I ended up with a bad case of Arthritis in my shoulders because of it Well I was looking at Northern Tool and found a LSHT hydraulic motor with approximately the same specs as my powerhead. I made a bracket and coupling for it and moved the bucket cylinder hoses over to the motor. Viola!

Actually, Kris is correct. I'm not cheap. I'd have to get at least $50 per hour including hauling time. As far as the good work part is concerned, 25-30% of my annual volume is from repeat customers. Paul

The Ardisam auger bit takes a 7/8" shaft to go into it. The hydraulic motor has a 1" shaft. I went to farm and fleet and bought two tapered sheave hubs, one 7/8 bore and one 1" bore and bolted them back to back. I welded a piece of 7/8 rod into the 7/8 hub and drilled and tapped the 1" hub for set screws. The bracket was a spare intermediate link that I never used for my backhoe bucket. I used a hole saw to cut for the motor counterbore and drilled the four holes for the motor face mount. The rest was plumbing. All in all, about 3 hours of fabrication. That's at my normal "putz" rate.

Could have used that last weekend. We drilled 32 holes to set the legs of seats into. Burned up the clutch on the first hand-held auger, took it back to the rental place and got another one. Building a small amphitheater at a local church as an Eagle Scout project. Doing the stage tomorrow.

Aren't you a little too old for boy scouts? :D Just kidding, I was an Eagle Scout myself, they told me back when I earned mine that it was the equivalant of a college education............

Mike, My youngest son just made Eagle Scout in February. There are about three of the older boys who I want to help with their Eagle Projects before I leave the troop for good. I have been an Assistant Scoutmaster since my son Randy first crossed over from Cub Scouts. We moved to this new troop about a year ago to help get them going. It is closer to our home, and in an entirely different district. The current troop has now been in existance for about 1 1/2 years. Randy was their first Eagle Scout. Small, young, troops with half a dozen boys are always more fun that the large ones with 40 or so boys. Less parents to have to deal with. My son Randy has also been a Counsellor at BSA Summer Camp with this being his fourth summer. It will probably be his last, since he starts college next fall in another state, and wants to go into the co-op program where he would alternate between college and work each semester till he graduates. Scouting has been great for him. He is one of the most mature 18 year olds that I have been around in quite a while. Most times he acts more mature than his 26 year old brother.

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time 
      Paul
