WoodMaxx offers WM-series backhoe attachments in three sizes to accommodate almost any category 1 tractor. Our WM-6600 with a maximum digging depth of 7′, the WM-7600 with a maximum digging depth of 8′ are compatible with tractors equipped with a cat-1 three-point hitch, and the WM-8600 that offers a full 9′ digging depth is compatible with cat-1 three-point hitch and also some cat-2 three point hitches (please notice that a cat-2 top link is required to use this backhoe with a cat-2 three-point hitch. Let us know when ordering so that we can provide the correct top link).
WoodMaxx WM-series backhoe attachments are 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 attachments, 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 attachments 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.
Over 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.
WoodMaxx 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.
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.
The WoodMaxx backhoe ripper attachment is a single structural steel claw with a replaceable hardened steel tooth that focuses the force of the dig to a narrow point. The ripper is handy for breaking up rocky ground, tree roots, stumps, and brush.
These hardened teeth will last a long time, but are a breeze to change when the time comes.
WoodMaxx 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 adaptor 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 later!
WoodMaxx WM series backhoe attachments utilize a cartridge type oil filter that is positioned directly inside the hydraulic oil tank through an easy access port. Positioning the filter in this location provides for greater protection from damage and ease of accessibility. These easy to change oil filters makes servicing your WM-series backhoes attachments breeze.
The boom on our WM series WoodMaxx 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.
WoodMaxx WM series backhoe attachments offer a superior powder coat finish that is baked onto the steel. This finish is thicker and much more durable than paint to keep your backhoe attachment free from rust and looking good for years.
The WoodMaxx backhoe 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 backhoes 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.
The grapple thumb is incredibly handy for picking up rocks, tree limbs, and brush. The mechanical thumb requires the operator to position the thumb by lowering and inserting a pin to secure the thumb. The hydraulic thumb is simply adjusted from the operator’s seat. The mechanical thumb is also an available option.
All of our WoodMaxx backhoe attachments for sale 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 or jamming. This design also makes mating the backhoe attachment to the tractor easier, just attach the pump to the PTO, adjust the backhoe attachment 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.
Removable/replaceable rubber street pads on the stabilizer legs help reduce damage to the lawn, blacktop, and concrete. Standard equipment on WoodMaxx backhoe attachments.

Humm, can’t get the 5 star rating to take…
Got the WM6600 back in 2020,
A bit late on my review but it has been above what I thought it would be. I’m in the grey area on fitment for my tractor (JD770) but other than having to put a fair amount of weight on my loader to get around, it works pretty well. The PTO HP isn’t my problem as it’s the weight. The engine doesn’t hardly drop an rpm when using it for anything. I rarely go much above 1500 rpms. Here in the PNW we either have clay, rocks or both. It was killing me trying to dig out next to my shop with my bucket with all the rocks. This worked great for digging it out and piling it up for the bucket to get at. I did a lot of looking at different manufacturers, mainly for lighter weight and what options I could afford. But I just couldn’t pass up this self-contained system and the sales they were having so I went and got it. Lift gate delivery was even included.
I ended up cutting a dozen or so pretty good size trees down and it actually picked up some pretty good size logs and rounds. I just needed to get it high enough for my old 4×8 trailer to take to where I need them to go. I got the hyd thumb, (which is OMG awesome), 15″ bucket, Ripper and the Quick Attach for the bucket & ripper. Had a couple of hiccups right off the bat with one of the valves leaking and later on a hose decided to imitate Old Faithful but WoodMax stepped up and sent me replacements.
Thanks to Jessica who caught my order in time to correct my mistake and Ron and Joel who answered my questions and helping with my problems.
Purchased the WM6600 for my Kubota 3240 and the machine exceeded my expectations. Being a heavy equipment technician, I know how high quality equipment is supposed to perform and this machine hits the mark. Thanks WoodMaxx..
Great service, easy to work with when ordering WM6600 and deliver. Got it hooked up to my John Deere 3038e tractor. So far this machine is working good and well built.
Thanks WoodMaxx. I purchased the WM6600 Backhoe from you and it has been a great addition to my 25HP Tractor. Purchasing was a breeze, just called up and spoke with Jim, quick and easy. Set up took some time, but all the parts are nice and robust. Controls are familiar and easy to operate, very smooth operation while running lower RPM’s with the “tank” of a pump that comes with. PTO Pump is the way to go, it makes connecting and disconnecting a breeze. Thanks for supplying such a nice product at a really good price.
Just purchased this, I haven’t used the hoe yet, but I’m very pleased with the process so far. I ordered my backhoe on Monday, and Friday it was delivered to my house. Could not ask for better service, and everything looks good and seems to work properly.
