Happened to see on Markhams Welding website a "back hoe" that mounts on a QA FEL. Obviously, this is a limited use implement but was curious if anyone has any knowledge of this. I saw a previous reference to a "Quick Spade" but this actually has a bucket that curls. A real backhoe is unfortunately years away in the toy budget, so when I need to dig, I reach for a shovel. Needless to say, I don't dig much.

What's that ?

One of those SSL backhoes would tear your FEL to shreds I am afraid...Just because you have a universal SS QA setup does not mean you can attach any SSL attachment.

Agreeing with Kenny. A Bobcat brand backhoe also attaches to heavy hook brackets (similar to how a FEL attaches to a tractor) on each side of the machine, welded to the fenders, which are really part of the frame. The QA portion is only a small part of what holds the BH to the Bobcat.

For a CUT, I only see these basic options:

Bucket
Grapple
Forks
Hydraulic PHD

How does the performance of the hydraulic PHD compare to the 3-pt. hitch model? What hydraulics do you need to run an average size unit? I understand that you cannot run one off of the electric over hydraulic valve. Do you power it off of the back? I just built a pole barn and had a friend bore holes with his skid steer. Are the PHD the same, in other words, could I borrow his and attach it to my FEL assuming it's of average size?
