Finished the Dolly for My Kubota Back Hoe!
Can be easily rolled out of the way for winter storage also at the correct height for a 5 minute hook up!

Consist of 3 pictures:

Material used:
One 5' small trailer axle with 400X8 wheels and tires. Off an old trailer I had laying around doing nothing!
Two 2 1/2"x5" U bolts
Dolly originally built for my ballast box!

You need a new Hoe house

I wished I had the money for Hoe like that!

Takes up a lot of room! I wish I had one

I'm sorry I had to chuckle a little...its the money/hoe thing

Hey Archdean,
Dont you loose too much room in the garage having the arm extendend that far? Nice rig however, even if its orange :)

Dean…

Nice job on the hoe dolly. :thumbsup:
Great use of some simple materials that turned it a very functional item.
I can see why you would want to store the hoe in the extended position.
I wouldn’t want to be in the way if it fell over in the retracted position.
What is the weight of the hoe ?

Just thinking would a motorcylce lift be useful here? The ones I have had handle 1,200 lbs (My guess the Hoe is 800 lbs) also dolley wheel enabled. The placement of the lift arms are far enough spaced to stablize the backhoe from being tippy.....or so i would assume or think....

I re-read the posts as to why its extended. Didnt see it originally

Nice response Guy's Thanks!!

The Hoe weighs 845# without the bucket, the reason the hoe has to be extented is the boom and dipper stick will bleed down and make it unstable.
I had thought I could store it that way but I needed to modify my plan, It worked out ok and even allows a better angle placement in the barn (wasting little if any space!

Tom, most farm stores have heavy duty 4" castors with 3/8" shafts which will hold your ballast box with ease.

Finial point, it is so easy to move around , G/F Parked it by herself (of course she was a professional wrestler ) {Damn Di that hurt}!!! Ok I'll retract the wrestler bit!!

For an 845 lb. hoe, she's still in excellent shape.
You think I would have anything less:question: :question: :question:

Omitting the letter "e" in certain words in the title and posts, makes for funny reading. :D

Nice job on the implement transporter, Dean. :thumbsup:

Gaylord is before I get off of 75 to head to Lansing, right? Without looking at a map, I think I remember the turn off to Lansing being about 100 miles south of the Mackinaw Bridge. That would put me through Grahling and Gaylord.

I'm sure I'll be ready for a stop by then. That's about 5 1/2 hours into an 8 1/2 hour drive.
That's correct...your going to get on 27 just south of Grayling.

Tom,
The upper "P" is either Exceptionally Bad for Snow Jobs or Exceptionally Good for Blow Jobs:D :D :D :D
