Hello team, I am a new member here, I am interested in building a backhoe attachment for my Bobcat 463, I have built other attachments by pictures and converting to scale size with rulers, I need more in depth knowledge, can anyone help with a copy of the plans? this will have manual outriggers as they were by the factory, my machine is very light. I built a skid hoe attachment years ago, works great but I would like more maneuverability. thanks, Joe.
Probably the easiest way would be to use something like the cad-digger plans, beef up the size and weight, then adapt the mounts to fit as needed. You could use some of the basic dimensions and change the front to mount whatever you need it to fit. I don't know where an actual bobcat attachment is, so I can't get actual pix of factory made unit.
