John Deere Model LA Tractor with Backhoe





To view the running tractor, here is a video:

A friend of mine, who is a John Deere L series expert, built this backhoe by making the backhoe unit from a small Kubota tractor onto a John Deere LA tractor. It has live hydraulics powered from a hydraulic puump mounted on the front of the crankshaft. All functions on the backhoe work, but some attention will need to be given to the control valves, which tend to leak down and no lose pressure after a time. The cylinders are all good and operate with minimal to no leakage. You wo't be digging large tree stumps with this unit, but it is possible to do trenching and other smaller jobs. The seat will rotate to the rear for operation of the hoe. It is very stable and the fully extended hoe will not raise the front of the tractor off the ground. It has 6 inch, 12 inch, and 16 inch buckets. The tractor itself is in very good mechanical condition, it starts easily and runs well. It drives well in all gears. It has electric start.
