WARNING! He is selling the plans for these and NO, I have no affiliation to him whatsoever. I just think they're neat. YMMV. I'll probably, never build any of them but, maybe someone here can use the information.

Hoocha Momma!, who chop-id-da cheese?

Looks like a neat toy, bet my girls would have liked the little backhoe when they were little. Would have been good training for when I turned them loose with the excavator and skid loader.

There is no such thing as too much ammo.....the real problem is a target deficency.

Years ago back in the 90's I bought plans from some company to build my own backhoe. Dont remember the company but they offered plans for other tools as well. Bought the material less the engine, pump, and cylinders to build it and started fabricating it up. A little while later I had free use of a commercial backhoe free of charge when ever I needed it so I stopped the build and used the material for other things. Still have the plans for it somewhere because I came across them about 10 years ago with the move to our present residence.
