The backhoe’s subframe mounting bar fits into the rear mounting brackets that are attached to the tractor. This solid mount provides two valuable features:
Stability by virtually eliminating vertical or side-to-side movement often found in some 3-point hitch backhoe mounts. The subframe design also positions the entire backhoe close to the tractor.
Tractor chassis is protected by tying the respective tractor and the backhoe together as one. It also allows operators to take full advantage of the total weight transfer between backhoe stabilizers and loader buckets.
The front of the 595 Backhoe subframe is attached to the tractor with quick-pins for fast installation and removal. The backhoe’s hydraulic hoses attach to the tractor hydraulic system (requires the power-beyond kit) with quick-couplers, further enhancing the ease of hookup and removal.
Two user-friendly levers are located on the console to control the boom lift, swing, dipperstick, and bucket. Updated control linkages require less operator effort and provide a better feel than cables, adding to operator comfort after digging for long hours.
A convenient location for storing swing and boom lock pins is provided on the operator station.
