Built for the Job.
FHM backhoe attachments are a perfect combination of size and power. Light enough to move aroun,d yet strong enough to get the tough jobs done. Some backhoe attachments boost heavier weight, but weight is not power or durability. Additional unnecessary weight only adds stress to the frame of your tractor. FHM BHM series backhoes attachments are manufactured using heavy Q-235 (American standard ASTM A-36) structural steel plate, the strongest plate steel available. The pieces are CNC laser cut so that they fit together perfectly, and are then precision welded. This combined with our superior design and high quality components provides the best backhoe value available.
160 Degree Boom Swing
The boom on our BHM175 series FHM allows for 160 degrees of swing from one side to another. This allows you to dig into those tight spots and dump the dirt where you want.
Rust Resistant Powder Coat Finish
FHM -BHM series backhoe attachments offer a superior powder coat finish that is baked onto the steel. This finish is thicker and much more durable than paint to keep your backhoe attachment free from rust and looking good for years. .
Quality Hydraulic Controls
FHM-BHM-series backhoe attachments are equipped with hydraulic control valves that are made in Italy. Italian ISO pattern hydraulic controls are known for their high precision designs and offers some of the most dependable products on the market. These are the highest quality hydraulic control valve available for a PTO backhoe attachments, and offers extremely smooth and reliable operation. The hydraulic control valves on a backhoe attachments are the heart of the backhoe. Our control valves are second to none and offer smooth dependable operation.
Replacable Hardened Bucket Teeth
These hardened teeth will last a long time, but are a easy to change when they need to be changed.
Fully Self-Contained Hydraulic System
All FHM backhoes attachments are equipped with a intergrated hydraulic pump and tank. No need for hydraulics from your tractor or to hang a pump off your PTO. This design is superior because it ensures the proper flow and pressure are achieved at all PTO speeds. This ensures that the hydraulic valves operate correctly. No need to try and match a backhoe to your tractors hydraulic flow and pressure. The hydraulic pump integrated into the backhoe removes pump hoses that get damage,d are in the way and the insecure and often unsafe pump loosely connected to the tractor’s PTO shaft. Connection with a PTO shaft means a secure safe connection. This design makes connecting the backhoe to the tractor easy. Just back the tractor in, attach the pins and connect the PTO shaft.
Standard Hose Fittings
FHM-BHM series backhoe attachments utilize JIC (Joint Industrial Council) hose fittings and are rated for 5000 psi. For you this means that if you ever need to replace a hydraulic hose, that your local hydraulic or parts store can make hoses while you wait. JIC fittings are widely used in hydraulic fluid transfer and typically very easy to come by. No reason to chase down an adaptor because of mismatched threads.
Spin-On Oil Filter
FHM-BHM series backhoe attachments use a spin on oil filter that can be cross referenced with Napa, Baldwin, Wix, and others. These easy to change spin on oil filter makes servicing your FHM-BHM-series backhoes attachments breeze.
