Thousands of WoodMaxx backhoes are in service today, and still going strong. The solid design and high quality components are unparalleled. Italian made control valves offer smooth and outstanding performance to our already robust WM-series backhoe attachments. New replaceable pivot joint bushing and an extreme duty gear pump are now standard equipment on all WoodMaxx PTO backhoe attachments. Please read below to find out more.
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.
WoodMaxx WM-series 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 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.
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.
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 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 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).
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.
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.
Removable/replaceable rubber street pads on the stabilizer legs help reduce damage to the lawn, blacktop, and concrete. Standard equipment on WoodMaxx backhoe attachments.
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.
At WoodMaxx 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 help you get what you need from our fully stocked warehouse.
The WoodMaxx WM-7600 comes with a robust 2 year warranty. Our service department also stocks a full line of replacement parts if the need arises.

My 7600 backhoe is one of three different items I’ve bought from Wood Maxx …..well built and they are quick to respond if you have any problems or questions…….can’t say enough good about the backhoe, snow blower or pto wood chipper that I bought from them…….all vey good items…thanks for everything…..
Waited for them to come back in stock and called the minute I got my notification! WM7600, mechanical thumb and 9″ and 15″ buckets. Installed on Massey Ferguson TO35 (1959). Install took a bit of fiddling, but so far I’m delighted with performance. My tractor front end could use a couple hundred extra pounds of ballast, when I figure out a way to add easily removable weight. Install instructions are crystal clear. I used a 4 1/2″ dowel to hold the “spacer” in place while attaching the top bar to the backhoe. Not enough room to get my hand up in there. 1 1/4″ impact driver socket worked fine to tighten top bar hardware. Dug up a few small stumps so far. Neighbors both have long utility trenches to dig and I have a small pond to work on, once the N. Texas weather abates. Been over 100F every day for about a month, and it’s only mid-July. Perhaps a shade umbrella would be nice first accessory?
I called and spoke with someone who advised me about the Backhoe that I wanted to buy, I didn’t know which one I could use on my New Holland tractor, I wanted the Wm-7600 and he advised me that it would work on my Tractor. I wanted the Grab Thumb and a 12″ Bucket. I wanted a PTO pump and the PTO shaft extender which made it a lot easier to put the pump on. The backhoe arrived on time as noted and took me about 4 hours to put it on my tractor, since I had to take off my Drag Box. Everything went on as stated in the Manual, the only trouble I had was with the top link getting the 2 joint plates, but once I got them Align, all the bolts when in as shown. After putting in the Hydraulic oil, everything worked great. I don’t like reading Manuals but the guy I spoke with said that it would good together faster….and it did thanks… Just playing with it, It will do the thing I want to get done.
Tanks again Rich Alves, Nevada I took a couple photos,
I liked how easy the installation was, everything was clearly wrote out in the instructions. The hydraulic hoses are mostly JIC connections on the cylinders but the hose ends at the valve appear to be banjo which isn’t as common in case of a damaged hose. The thumb and 15” bucket is a nice touch of add on, I see this unit holding up well.
Nice backhoe for the money. Put it on a Ford 55 hp tractor. I mostly use it for drainage ditches, and it works great with the 15″ bucket.

No pictures yet, but I just wanted to share my experience with the MX-8500G+ (can’t leave the plus sign off.) I have a new Massey Ferguson GC1723EB, but I didn’t want to have to remove my backhoe to use a chipper. After much study, I decided to buy this chipper to use with a Yanmar 1500, which only has 15 hp running wide open. I got it mounted and working, and it works beautifully. The Woodmaxx is so balanced and quiet that I could not believe the stability with that little tractor. Have no fear about using this wonderful machine with a very modest powered tractor; it will work exceedingly well.
I would NOT recommend purchasing the backhoe attachment. Putting together the backhoe was not too bad and the instructions/photos were helpful. For reference, I have a Mahindra 4540, with a 31 HP PTO. First, Connecting the backhoe to the tractor is difficult, the tractor sits higher than the implant’s support legs reach and therefore makes the connection nearly impossible. Once attached I tested it on a random area and the backhoe could not go deeper than six inches. This was in slightly rocky soil. When I attempted again in a new location the tractor lurched and began to make a hissing sound from my hydraulic system and I was unable to move my three-point hitch on the tractor. At this point, I stopped digging and attempted to remove the attachment before any more damage occurred. I called Woodmax to return the backhoe and they said I was able to return with a 5% restocking fee but we had to pay for the return shipping. When I reached out to the freight company that delivered the backhoe I was quoted $3,000 shipping. I am now stuck with a $7,000 attachment that doesn’t work for my situation and a tractor that needs to go to the shop. This attachment may work in soft sand or garden soil but is not suitable for much else.
Bought new Christmas 2022!! Excellent machine for cost. Had some questions after assembly. Service was excellent in reply. Some damage in shipping. WOODMAXX sent part no charge. Love self feed because of design. Eight hours on engine due to storm damage and helping neighbors. Well balanced so you can push it around. Found it working harder at hour 6 Highly until tightening belts. Manual did not tell how. Had to figure it out. Instructions need to be added to manuals. Neighbor is now buying one! Bought flannel shirt. Is now my favorite!
Highly recommend this product and company.
Got my 8500+ chipper about 6 months ago. Setup is easy. I run it on the back of a John Deere 1025R. I have a ton of Eastern Red Cedar on my lot plus some Osage Orange and Honey Locust. Chipped up a truckbed load of mulch in about 90 minutes from a compacted brush pile. Small twigs didnt get chipped but otherwise, it ate whatever i threw in it. And literally i can throw it into the chute from feet away and it just pulls it right in. The largest log ive done was 4″ cedar, about 25 ft tall. It just kept hammering away, sucking the log in as it went. Ive got about 200 yards of trail cleared and that one pile was only about 40 feet of trail. Im planning on about a mile of trail overall. Gonna give this excellent chipper a good workout. Overall an A+ piece of equipment.
I purchased a WM8H chipper in March of 2022 and to date I have about 20 hours on the chipper. My Kubota L3901 tractor hardly knows the chipper is running.
I have used manual feed chippers before and am extremely happy with the ease the hydraulic feed pulls in all shapes and types of wood and the comfortable height of the infeed.
I am impressed at the ease at which the chipper chews thru all the soft wood I have feed into it. Slowing the feed, a bit, and it does the same on the hard wood I have chipped though it, most of the larger branches are used for firewood. It is making easy work of the smaller standing dead wood I have cut down. I have also cleaned up many piles of dried branches around my property, vastly improving the lawn edge esthetics and wood lot.
I have set the chipper in place and attached my sons Kubota BX tractor to run the chipper, then gather brush with the L to bring it to the chipper. The BX will run it just fine with a shortened PTO shaft but will not lift the chipper on the 3-point.
