    Thanks for the link, if you could PM the email to me I would appreciate it - can never get too much help on discontinued equipment


    Thanks, I'll see what I can find from that company - I read this on the Feterl site:

    Hydraulic Pressure
    2500 PSI (176 kg/cm squared) standard
    2500 PSI (127 kg/cm squared) backhoe circuit
    2000 PSI (127 kg/cm squared) utility circuit (optional)

    Hydraulic Pump
    Standard Circuit: 5 GPM (22 LPM) @ 3600 RPM
    Utility Option: Backhoe circuit 5 GPM (19 LPM) @ 3600 RPM
    Tool circuit 9 GPM (34 LPM) @ 3600 RPM


    So I guess at minimum I'm looking for a 9 gpm that can put out 2,500 psi pump at 3,600 rpm

    depending on how much of the engine is left on the one I just bought (picking it up tomorrow), I could let you know what I find on my 148 (also a 18hp Kohler)

    no hydraulic pump with it, but I did get the Op Manual + the engine manual -- I'll take pics of anything that can help and post it up

    the newest toy - now I just have to get it running

    This is what was written on the front of the engine manual - there wasn't anything else on the inside, so take it with a grain of salt

    the Op Manual is too big to just take a pic of each page - maybe I'll scan it and try to find someplace to host the file

    Great little tractor!!

    I recently purchased a used Dig-It TLB [tractor/loader/backhoe] model # 198T. Its serial # 95684. I don't know its age. I don't see a year of manufacture anywhere on the machine. I had to replace the hydraulic pump,[Vickers part # V10 1P1P 11C20.] $325 from Hydraulic supply. Ph.#-386-274-4617. Located Ormond Bch, Fl. The drive gear that is located INSIDE the motor shaft[mates with gear on pump] [$75.00 called spline kit.]is available from Mission Supply.Ph #- 812-385-5061. Talk to Larry. He knows a lot about the Dig-It machines.They also have a re-print of the owners/service manual.[$22.00] My Dig-It is up and working. For its small size, its a very strong machine. I'm in Bunnell, Fl. Ph-386-585-8905 Call with questions.

    Dig-it TLB 198t

    Hi all, I want to replace three of the backhoe pins with the zerk fittings and 1 bushing. They are worn so I would like them replaced. Where can I get them, their was a earlier posting from an engineer that they should be a common / stock Item
    from a supply. Has anyone had any luck finding a supplier that is reasonable.
    Thanks for the help.

    dig it backhoe

    Hello, I just bought my dig-it 148 towable. Used it right away and like it very much, but wouldn't mind a bigger bucket. Does anyone no were I could find one or what other buckets I can use that will fit? I have the 12" bucket on it right now and would like an 18" I know they make a 36" cemetery bucket for this. I am a caretaker for 2 cemeteries and this peice of equipment is really handy in tight spots.... Love it, just wish I had a bigger bucket...Thank you Jeff
