We offer a number of options, such as PTO Pump Kits, Flow Divider Kits and Closed Center Kits, to ensure that you can operate a Wallenstein backhoe on your tractor or skidsteer. The GE and GX series backhoes use a 2-lever joystick control valve with the ISO (Backhoe or John Deere) control pattern. Conversion to the SAE (Excavator or Cat) pattern is not possible.
Hydraulic accessories, such as the Telescopic Dipperstick on the GX920XT, and the optional BT5300 Hydraulic Thumb are controlled by the left-hand foot using a foot pedal. A swing speed controller is located by the operator’s left shin.
The QC620 does not have a separate control valve. It is operated by the skidsteer controls.
