    Hydraulic hoses under foot on a 260 BH

    Hi All
    I seen a lot of talk about the power beyond hoses on the footplate of the 260 BH. The pictures below show the set up on my 1025R and 260 BH the foot plate is clear of obstructions
    The only downside is that there is a U shaped bit of hose that sticks out the back when the BH is off the tractor, less of a problem than having hoses on the foot plate.
    Regards John

    Where is the jumper hose that connects the PB ports together when the BH is removed?

    I assume based on your post, you have a separate jumper hose that is installed in each PB quick connect.

    I personally do not find having the PB hose on the footrest as a problem.

    Yes, I would agree having the hoses laying on top of the footboard impressed me as less than ideal. Especially if you utilize the backhoe quite a bit.

    How about a Bill of Materials, sources, and cost? It will allow us that only occasionally utilize the backhoe a basis to determine if we can rationalize the expense. I've had my backhoe for two years and have used it once.

    Based on the photos I assume he just installed some 90-degree elbows onto the existing PB hoses.

    OP.. is that correct?

    Hi All
    This is how the BH was set up by the dealer, it was there first attempt at installing a BH. So no BoM. The BH did not come factory fitted to the 1025R because I did not want an OE loader but an aftermarket Burder FEL. Yes there is a seperate jumper hose for the PB system, a little untidy but so is the standard hose set up. I think this setup is cleaner and the clear footplate is safer.
    Regards John

    Easy Fixes

    My backhoe has the hoses in the standard installation configuration. I was annoyed when the dealer told me it was normal to just have them laying on the operator platform (where your feet go). With a little thought, I came up with 2 really cheap fixes for this issue.

    In the photo below, you can see I've taken a short luggage strap with a quick disconnect buckle and simply pulled the offending cable out of the way.

    This photo shows how perfectly clear the operator's platform is with this simple fix:

    Another solution I considered was to use a gizmo called a Cable Wraptor (I've seen them at several hardware stores, think I got mine at Ace). You simply run this device through the J-hook (for the top link) and then around the wayward backhoe hoses. It's easy to install or remove.

    Either solution will keep the operator's platform free for feet:
