Hello All, I’ve got a Kubota B2630 with a loader, that I would like to put a back hoe on.

The local dealer tells me the BH76 is what I need but it’s no longer available.

Does anyone have any experience with adapting another model? Like a BH77?

I’m likely better off buying a tractor with a hoe on it but I’ve owned this 2630 since new, it has about 100 hours on it and is in mint condition- too nice to part with.

I know I need the subframe, but i believe it’s still available from Kubota.

Thanks!

Not the expert you looking for, but this is from my BH77 assembly manual.

that would imply the BH77 can be installed. Maybe wishful thinking but I hope so.
I think it’s a safe bet. I believe the bh77 is just an updated version of the bh76 with the curved boom as opposed to the straight boom. May be other differences as well, but I would guess it will work. And the page is from the bh77 assembly manual I got with mine in 2019.

edit: cover of manual I have and page with subframe listing…

Manual is dated 2010, but it’s what I got in the bucket with subframe kit in 2019 🤷‍♂️

Perfect!
I’m going to go see my dealer tomorrow and ask them why they think it won’t fit.
Sure seems like Kubota thinks it fits!
Thanks for the help!!
