Storage for a Backhoe

Hooking up the three-point backhoe is probably my least-favorite job on the farm. To make it easier, I welded trailer jacks on both sides of the backhoe and fabricated a saddle to use with a third trailer jack for the boom to rest on. Now, I can hook up or unhook using minor adjustments across these three points. It stays where it’s put until  I need it, and it’s simple to move. Easy turns of the handle get things lined up.
A real time saver!
