Picture of Hydreco Back Hoe
[Return to Topics]

This is the picture of the backhoe. The only name I found was Hydreco on a tag on the resivor area. I will have to take some more of it now that I got it home. Pretty heavy unit for on the back of a small tractor and it did have lots of counter weight on the front and it still was light on the tires. The pump is about 12 inches long and 6-8 inches in dia but bolts directly over the PTO Shaft. I will try to get a close up of the pump. Mark H.

Hi, Mark, guess I posted before you got the pic up, oh well....a pump that size almost sounds like a multi-stage pump,[several pumps bolted together}, or, perhaps a piston pump. By the size of the cylendes on the 'hoe, it would have to have quite a volumn, if one were to use two or more systems at once. Wish that I were an hydraulics expert, so I could help more.....if the pins and bushings are reasonably tight in this unit, keeping would surely be suggestable persuable option.......once mounted direcdtly to a tractor, they usualy "settle down" and become less of a loose jointed contraption, and more of a workable unit. Just thoughts, Mark, it's yours to do as you wish.....have a gooder,R.E.L.

I just spent a few hours cleaning it up and got a picture of the pump for you to see. I just posted it above. Thanks, Mark H.
