The backhoe's mainframe fits into rear mounting brackets installed on the tractor. This provides the following important features:
Buckets are available in a variety of sizes to fit the job for greater productivity.
The boom and dipper are designed with the strength to handle the large loads put on these powerful backhoes.
The boom cylinder is run externally on the 385A and 485A Backhoes. This provides better serviceability.
The 385A and 485A Backhoes feature twin hydraulic cylinders to control the swing.
To ensure optimum performance, the tractor's hydraulic flow and increased system pressure are matched with the backhoe's system enhancing the digging force and overall performance.
This backhoe has several features that make it best in class when put on the proper tractors.
Key features include:
Flip-over pads allow a quick and easy conversion between field and street usage.
The controls on the backhoe operator console are arranged for optimal comfort, especially important for workdays.
Rubber stabilizer pads are available as an attachment. The pads are popular when operating the backhoe on hard surfaces.

Rubber stabilizer pads are available for those who operate their backhoe on hard surfaces. The rubber pads minimize scratching and damages to floor surfaces and help when skidding of the backhoe is a problem.
The pads can be ordered as optional equipment and easily attach to the standard claw-type stabilizer pad.
