BXpanded makes a nice storage cart for the BX25 Backhoe , looks like it should work on the JD 260 hoe. Anyone bought one , if so fits well ?

I have not heard of anyone trying BXE's stand on the JD hoe's before. It seems like a easy project to make one however if you have basic metalworking-or even woodworking skills.

building BH dolly on youtube

There is a guy on youtube who made up a nice video on building a backhoe dolly for a similar sized Massey backhoe.

I bought the heavy duty castors but still haven't gotten around to building it. It can't be that complicated....famous last words:lol:. That BX dolly looks pretty good too....even if it is the wrong color.

I'd just make one out of a couple of furniture dollys at harbor freight and some 2x4's if looks aren't a concern. That hoe only weighs 600lb.

So does anyone know if this will work with the 260 backhoe? My metal working skills are none existent so building one is out of the question for me. Looking to have the backhoe take up a little less space in the garage.

Sorry, I had to get the last leaves of the season taken care of with my MCS on before switching to the backhoe. Will get it done this weekend.

I was considering one of these but was able to get everything in pretty tight without it. I think it would actually take up more room using a stand. I don't need to move it around so this works for me. With the stand I wouldn't be able to get the bucket over the loader stand and in as tight.

I always put the hoe on for weight when I put the loader on so it's no issue. I should time it but if it takes more than 3 min for both I would be surprised. As easy as it is I can't bring myself to buy a weight box for just weight. Nothing on the back is not an option or safe for me. If I am using the loader it's usually a heavy load.

I agree with you about the ballast box. I built my own, cheaper, and it has additional features.
3min for both hoe (sitting on floor) and loader? I want to see your video of that! I don't doubt you are quick- but that would be impressive!

I'm happy to report that the bxpanded dolly worked perfectly. It works just as shown in the bxpanded dolly videos you can find on youtube for the Kubota.

It works perfectly when paired with the Artillian fork dollies as well, the hoe and the forks come together and save alot of space.

I worked with bxpanded to provide some dimensions, though I'm not sure if they ended up being different from the BX dolly or not, so make sure you specify the 1026/1023 260 BH when ordering.
