For those of you who are big on building stuff check " www.cadplans.com"
They sell plans, kits of parts & partial kits to build backhoes , loaders, & even
a 4wd loader tractor. Check it out & start drooling.

I have a caddigger, model 821. It'll dig like mad for a lightweight machine. Here it is in transport configuration. I didn't build it, as I bought it at a used equipment dealer on consignment. Engine not running at the time, but got it fixed easy & cheap, and it's paid for itself at least 2x since. It's definitely built from Cadplans. I have less than $1100 invested.

Gene, U have a running JBI. I need to know about the speed on the hydro. Will it run slow enough for
a tiller & will it run about 6 or 7 mph on top end. If not, I have a 2 speed out of a MH 14 that might
work if I need to.

You must mean me, Daniel. Yes, they will run slow enough for a tiller, as Bush Hog had a tiller for use with the JB series. Not sure how fast it is, but it'll do 7 or 8mph easy. To use a Massey 2 speed rear & hydro, some things have to be done to reverse the rotation of the hydro, unless you turn the engine around.

If I have to I'll turn the engine. that would be better for most snow-blowers. I know it would probably
cause problems with rear pto but right now I don't need the rear pto. The tiller I have for it is self
powered. The engine I have for it is a 20hp Onan horiz. opposed. I just hope it's not too wide so it doesn't interfer with the loader frame. But I am sure I will have some problems before I get done.
Also the MF hydro appears to be able to be reversed by rotating the charge pump plate 180 deg.
Good luck on getting the diesel in your JBI.

If you decide to sell the rear pto out of her, give me a shout! As to reversing the MF hydro, I am told there is more to it than just rotating the plate, but I don't know all the facts. Member "Tudor" knows all (has factory books on the subject) about how it's done & can help you if/when the time comes.

I belive that is the sunstrand pump.There is more to it then rotating the chare pump 180 degress.You also need to do some internal things with the swash plates and so on.
