    Default My Homemade Backhoe

    Well there has been some interest in a few of my projects so I decided to start a new topic for each. This way each project is separate. This is the CDP backhoe I built a while ago. I bought plans for it.

    Nice project. How much did it cost in material and how long did it take to complete ?
    To all who contribute to this board.

    Default Cost/Time

    The total cost came in around $2500 I think. Most of the cost is the hydraulics and motor. Once I had all the brackets made it took me about 3 weeks of steady work to put it together. I did the brackets on and off over a few months. At I regular "hobby" pace I could see it being a good winter project.
