    Seeking Video of Backhoe Removal Using Dolly - - 260b and 1025r

    Going to build a dolly to facilitate removing and installing 260b to my 1025r

    Does someone have a video showing how they use their dolly?

    Is it a problem if the dolly is too low? I understand that too high is a problem.

    I found the plans and instruction in two GTT threads.

    THANKS in advance!

    I threw money at the problem of backhoe storage and bought the BXpanded storage backhoe dolly. It's well built, but to your question it does seem to be a game of precise measurements to make it easy to get on and off. The front height measurement and the overall length to have a good pocket for the bucket to sit in are probably most important. Buy some good HD casters too.

    Here's a video of a 260 backhoe from YouTube (not mine). There seems to be a lot of other videos from orange tractors. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BjrF74NZLgw

    I believe that video is from a member of GTT's own, chex313!

    Not sure of a video but I used this thread to make my BH dolly for winter storage...
    260 Backhoe Dolly Build https://www.greentractortalk.com/for...s/20974?page=1

    This worked great for storage but for taking the BH off/on all the time, I don't think a simple dolly is the answer since the BH has a lot of weight to it.

    Zeke posted my version of the dolly(I put up one for removal and install), I had the spare lumber laying around and the 1000lb casters were $20. It just needs to slide under the frame so that is the height...and just wide enough to be stable. For length, I ended up shortening mine after the vid (I think). It only has to be long enough to catch the bucket.

    I think every homemade one is different, and they all work fine. In the comments on that vid the measurements are listed.
