CADDigger Model 508
Regular price $119.95
After the success of the backhoe we developed for the mini-diesel tractors (Model 608), we decided to design a backhoe for the Category 0 hitches on garden tractors. The CADDigger Model 508 was designed for the tractors that can lift at least 400 pounds with the hitch arms. The Model 508 is designed to run off the hydraulics of some tractors or a pump can be operated off the same pulley that normally drives the mower.The frame and boom were designed to keep the weight of the Model 508 as close to the tractor as possible. The standard bucket is 10 inches wide. Digging depth is 4 ½ feet. The fixed stabilizers are pin adjustable for uneven terrain. The steel in the Model 508 weighs 330 pounds. The controls, hoses and cylinders weigh 70 pounds. You know the Model 508 is tough with this much steel in the frame. You can even make different width buckets for this machine and change them by pulling 2 pins. The Model 508 has slightly less ripping power than the Model 608 but it also has a narrower bucket so performance at the bucket is virtually the same. The Model 508 and one of the CADLoaders makes your garden tractor the perfect landscaping tool.
