    started a topic My Homemade Backhoe

    My Homemade Backhoe

    Well there has been some interest in a few of my projects so I decided to start a new topic for each. This way each project is separate. This is the CDP backhoe I built a while ago. I bought plans for it.

    Very nice job. Did the cylinders , pump and valves come as a kit or did you just piece it together. At any rate it looks good.


    Ps: funny, my name is also Scott, and my last name bigins with a "W"

    Plans

    The backhoe plans are available at www.cdp-backhoe.com. I liked his design the best and it was reasonably priced. There are a few others out there also, try doing a Google search on "backhoe plans" or "towable backhoe".

    You could have easily paid 10000$ for a factory made one. You saved alot of money, you got a backhoe exactly the way you want it, you have the satisfaction of a job well done and now you can brag about it to all your friends!

    Very nice piece you`ve got there.The price to build is more than reasonable and you get to do what we all like to,WELD.With the size and specs of youre backhoe you should be able to recoup the cost to build in short order.Again nice job.
