Just curious, what do you have to run the RPM's at while doing BH work?

I doubt you will have issues with the rears filled. If anything they will provide more weight stabilization for using the BH.

The most important thing is to go slow and learn how to use it.
1. I dont recommend much stump digging. Backhoes are meant to dig dirt. If you do stumps...look up Daveknowshow on Youtube and watch how he digs parallel to the roots...this is key to make sure the dirt doesn’t provide the root extra strength against your curl.
2. Dont move dirt on the ground by swinging the boom. If you hit anything during the process it can tweak portions of the arm.
3. I have read reports of the subframe and 3 pt arms being very close to hitting or hitting in some cases...when you have the BH off and the 3pt lower arms on, watch the tolerances to ensure you dont bang up your machine.

Best of luck and have fun!

Make sure you put the lift links on in the right orientation. See post BH77 Backhoe Subframe Interferes w/ 3pt Leveling Link

Mine came with filled tires from the dealer as standard with the BH77. When I took delivery, first thing I did was run it from stop to stop in all directions. Nothing was close to hitting. Safety stickers note that it's possible to hit the lift arms with the bucket, but mine won't hit even if you try. I remove all my 3 pt arms and there is not clearance issues there. I opted for the 12" bucket because of the density of clay we have here, but I think you'll really like that 16". Also, check your height for clearance, it does stick up a little higher than my ROPS when locked in and barely clears my garage door.

Thanks for all the info gents....and FREEHEELER , does your owners' manual address
the rear tires as to filled or unfilled at all ?

I can't find an owners' manual for the BH 77 online at all (that is free). I don't have mine as was told it comes with the unit.

I found a manual for the BH 70 and it specifically sez do NOT use with loaded tires. (Page 6 pre operating instructions)

I talked to the dealer and they never heard of any problems with loaded tires.

I am thinking the added weight plus digging may be a bit much for the outrigger arms ????

Well....I found another one for a new B26 with the BT820 backhoe attached. It is in the manual one can download here:

https://kubota.ca/en/products/power-...ader-backhoes/

Manual says to remove ballast from tires when using backhoe......what is the reason ???????

I wonder how water can be removed without causing the rims to rust....think the tires would have to be taken off and dried out to manage that. Any water left in the tire would cause rust with all the air in it.


I am going to read the manual when the backhoe gets in...I bet it's the same. Gonna tell them to get the water out and prevent rusting.

This backhoe will not be coming off this tractor.

Any ideas on this appreciated. Thanks, Pete

From my understanding, they recommend no filled tires due to the additional weight on the BH stabilizers.

Make an effort to not fully lift the wheels off the ground when using the BH. Just take some weight off the tires, but leave them on the ground.
