Saw this, BK175 3 Point Hitch LW Backhoe Fits Cat 0
And thought of the hilarious spectacle of one of them on the back of a GT.
And since it’s a 3pt BH I had to then wonder how it would break a tractor, break the 3pt or the frame rails? Axles perhaps?
Not recommending Titan Attachments or 3pt BH’s just thought I would share.

That makes me wonder about the Cat 0 even more, that's half of the at pin lift capacity of the 2025R CUT we use...
Or the entire weight of most of our GT's is almost the same, is a funny mental picture though.

I think that exceeds the weight rating of my John Deere 318.

Just imagine, replacement frame and axle values would go through the roof...
Is a hilarious mental picture though...

5-7 gpm hydraulic requirement. I think that would require an additional hydraulic system. The standard system on a 332 in my opinion does not satisfactorily handle a CTC loader. To adequately handle this backhoe you need a system with a control valve that can support combined flow to three different functions. Excuse me ... four different functions ... boom, arm, bucket, and swing. Maybe on a compact tractor but not a garden tractor. Category 0? I don't even put those on garden tractors.

So a 3xx tlb is currently getting to the $10k and 3,000lb range...
Still hilarious, anyone have 10k to burn almost literally?
Attempting to figure out how to make it work technically just makes it even more funny.

(Also, if anyone thinks I posted this as a serious idea, no just posted for laughs)

1/4 inch couplers on our tractors are only rated for a 3 gallon flow. Sure couldn't use the tractors hydraulics. You would still be there when the dinner bell rang.

Just throw more pressure at them... ...yeah... ...that'll work... ...just might make a rapidly unscheduled dissassembly.

Many are rated at 3000 psi. I don't think I want to be around much higher PSI.

So now we have an expensive 2,000lb death trap GT... I thought this was a ridiculous idea when I first posted and it seems even more so now... still hilarious though. lol
