MetKit has developed an easy to assemble set of hydraulic
stabilizers for the 508, and 608 three point hitch CADDiggers. The
stabilizers are controlled by their own valve that connects to
your existing hydraulics. The stabilizers have over 120 degrees of
rotation so they can be located at any position from 65 degrees up
to 19” below the pivot.
The Stabilizers are angled 30 degrees out to each side, giving
a wider stance than the standard CADDigger stabilizers for more
stability. Many customers have used the hydraulic stabilizers to
convert the 508 and 608 to rigid frame mount backhoes on their
tractors, eliminating the free motion of the three point hitch
mount. The Hydraulic Stabilizers are supplied in a ready to weld
kit, including precut steel and hydraulics and instructions.
The Hydraulic Stabilizers fit 508 & 608 CADDiggers.
