I would not dare put one on a 8n I've seen them tear a 50hp tractor in half.My dad had a front end loader on one but with all the weight you have to put in the back you can't steer it.They do make a backhoe unit that works on the 3 point hook the pto to the pump and has it's own hydro tank.

small PTO mounted bachoe attachments actually work quite well on tractors like an 8N....they mount on yer 3 pt hitch and the PTO runs an aux hyd system

My dad has one ......it aint for hard diggin but they do pretty good

Only 8 and 9N's I've ever used were doin good to mow with. We had a loader on one when i was a kid along with a cement barrel on the 3 point. The only thing the loader was good for was haulin grain out to the cattle creep feeders. We bought it in bulk and just put the scoop under the gravity wagon door. I can't even imagine a backhoe on it. Seems like the bucket would pull the tractor.
