I'm looking for a 46 backhoe with subframe for my 2720 and would like to know a fair price.
The best picture I have is already posted in this thead. My new original support bracket went to the backhoe seller. You can see that the more "beefy backhoe bracket" is installed in the picture.Is the whole bracket heaver or just the sleves where the pins go in??? how much thicker or thick is ths plat metal?
Here are some photos of that bracket that you don't want to leave behind if purchasing a used 46 backhoe It appears to be the stock 3PH bracket but upon close inspection it's much more rugged and the side bushings are different dimensions.Any info. would be GREAT:thumbup1gif:Superglidesport
Here are some additional photos that show the relationship of the rear bracket to the backhoe subframeAny info. would be GREAT:thumbup1gif:Superglidesport

I remember comparing the two brackets side by side when I swapped with the backhoe seller. The only difference we could see was the thicker area that supports the 3ph pins.
I ran out to the garage, and the outside measured 2.5" across. You could compare that to yours.
Why JD wants ~$900 for this bracket confounds me, but you need the backhoe bracket. I would be afraid to operate the backhoe with out it.
P.S. Since my last post I will say that I like using the backhoe. I really enjoy the cracking and snapping of the tree roots is a good sound to me :mocking:.
Digging out rocks that previously resisted budging with pry bars and shovels, come out quickly. Especially liked removing the rocks that poked their heads up enough to threaten my mower blades.
Yes it's a small backhoe, but it's workled out great for me, and what I need it for.
I look out the window everyday anticipating spring and using the backhoe to remove more stumps and rocks.
Come on spring
Larry, starting your own thread (and not replying to one that's 2 years old) and letting us know what machine you have and what machine the brackets you have are for would help us.I purchased a used BH46 and did not get the brackets for the back or front.
From what it looks like the existing bracket could be beefed up to accommodate. Some help would be nice in determining the measurements required.
