STRENGTH IN DESIGN
™ backhoe tractor attachments are a
perfect combination of size, weight, and power. Light enough to move around,
yet strong enough to get the tough jobs done. Some backhoe attachments boost heavier
weight, but heavier is not always better. Additional unnecessary weight only
adds stress to the frame of your tractor. WoodMaxx
™ WM series backhoe attachments are
manufactured using heavy formed 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 precisely welded. This fact
combined with the structural design allows for the perfect combination of
weight and rigidity.
ITALIAN MADE HYDRAULIC CONTROLS BY HYDRO-CONTROL
backhoe attachments are now equipped with hydraulic control valves that are made in Italy
by Hydro-control. Known for their high precision engineered control valves, Hydro-control
designs and manufactures directional control valves for mobile applications and
offers some of the most dependable products on the market. This is the highest
quality hydraulic control valve available for a PTO backhoe attachment, and offers
extremely smooth and reliable operation. Hydro-control has been involved in
manufacturing hydraulic components since 1969, and has millions of products
throughout the world in some of the most demanding applications. The hydraulic
control valves on a backhoe attachment are the heart of the machine; this is why we chose Hydro-control.
These control valves are second to none and offer extremely smooth operation
for experienced operators, but are also very forgiving for novice operators

time the pivot points of a backhoe will wear and require pin replacement. This
is evident when the various parts that make up the boom, dipper, and bucket
become loose and rattle. Due to the high load application of the pivot points,
this is a common wear item for backhoes and excavators. Not only does the pin
wear out, but the pin boss will also experience wear, so simply replacing the
pin does not return the backhoe to its original condition. That is why WoodMaxx
™ backhoes are manufactured with replaceable bushings that are pressed into the
pin bosses. So when the time comes to replace the pins, you can also replace
the bushings. This will return your backhoe to its former glory…. You are
spending a lot of money on an implement so this is a very important feature for
sure. Without replaceable bushings there is no way to return the backhoe to its
original condition and you will have to simply deal with a sloppy boom. This
feature is usually reserved for standalone backhoes and excavators, but is
standard equipment with any WoodMaxx ™ PTO backhoe attachment. Additionally, WoodMaxx
™ is the only manufacturer of PTO backhoes that offers this option, and an
option that should not be overlooked when shopping for a backhoe attachment.
ONE-PIECE GEAR PUMP NEW
™ backhoe attachments are equipped with an extremely reliable one-piece gear
pump made from high strength aluminum center housing and cast iron end plates.
These pumps are equipped with an internal spline and are made to slide right
onto the 1-3/8” spline of your tractor. No need to add oil to these pumps since
the lubrication is provided by the pumped hydraulic oils. Roller bearings and self-adjusting
wear plates make these pumps far superior to any pump/gearbox combinations
offered by our competitors that leak oil on the floor as soon as you disconnect
the backhoe attachment from your tractor. Go ahead and compare, WoodMaxx ™ is
the only backhoe attachment manufacturer to offer such a robust pump.
EXCLUSIVE SAE OR ISO PATTERN CONTROL SWITCH
Commonly called “Cat” Or
“John Deere” pattern controls. WoodMaxx
™ backhoe attachments utilize a proprietary valve system
that allows the user to change control patterns between SAE (Society of
Automotive Engineers) Or ISO (International Organization For Standardization) with
the flip of a switch. this is helpful if you are already accustomed to one pattern,
or if there will be more than one operator using the same machine.
GRAPPLE THUMB (HYDRAULIC OR FIXED)
Handy for picking up rocks, tree limbs, and brush. The
mechanical thumb option is only 195.00 and requires the operator to position
the thumb by lowering and inserting a pin to secure the thumb. While the
hydraulic thumb is available for 495.00 and is simply adjusted from the operator’s

RUBBER STREET PADS
rubber street pads on the stabilizer legs help reduce damage to the lawn,
blacktop, and concrete. Standard equipment on WoodMaxx
™ backhoe attachments.
REPLACEABLE HARDENED BUCKET TEETH
These hardened teeth will
last a long time, but are a breeze to change when the time comes.
SMOOTH HYDRAULIC CONTROLS
™ backhoe attachments are
equipped with a self-contained hydraulic pump and tank. No need for hydraulics
from your tractor. This design is superior because it ensures the proper flow
and pressure are achieved at 540 RPM PTO speed. This ensures that the hydraulic
valves operate smoothly for the operator. Since all tractors put out different
hydraulic flow and pressure, it is almost impossible to match a backhoe attachment to a
tractor correctly. Over flow and pressure, or under flow and pressure is almost
always encountered. This is not a problem with the WoodMaxx WM-series backhoe attachment.
Also, the hydraulic pump mounts directly to the PTO spline of any category I tractor. No PTO shaft means no shaft sizing required, and no possibility of
the shaft binding of jamming. This design also makes mating the backhoe attachment to the
tractor easier, just attach the pump to the PTO adjust the backhoe height using
the support legs and boom, back the tractor in, and attach the pins. This is
not possible with backhoes that utilize a PTO shaft to power the pump.
180 DEGREE BOOM SWING
The boom on our WM series
™ allows for 180 degrees of swing from one side to another. This allows
you to dig into those tight spots and dump the dirt where you want.
JIC HOSE FITTINGS
™ WM 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 tractor supply or Napa can make hoses while you wait. JIC
fittings are widely used in hydraulic fluid transfer and typically very easy to
come by. No trying to chase down an adapter because of mismatched threads. This
is something that should not be overlooked when shopping for a backhoe attachment. They
will all need a hose sooner or late!
SPIN ON OIL FILTER
™ WM 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 WM-series
backhoes a breeze.
™ our service
department is staffed with professional certified technicians that inspect each
machine before it is shipped. This ensures that you get a trouble free machine
from the get go. When you need technical help or parts, our courteous staff can

finish is thicker and much more durable than paint to keep your backhoe attachment free
from rust and looking good for years.
