Default JCB 2CX Airmaster - Backhoe Conversion?

Hi all, Does anyone know if there is an easy way to put a backhoe onto a JCB 2CX Airmaster. I don't need the compressor that's on the back and bought it to use as a loading shovel, which it does well enough. However, I now have some digging work around the farm and wondered if there is a simple way to convert the machine I have into a backhoe loader? Thanks P.

sadly it would not be easy. at all, and it would be very expensive.

Bugger !!! .... seems daft that at least from appearances the machines look very similar. Would it be possible / realistic to try to add a pto driven backhoe like used on agricultural tractors instead of a full on integrated backhoe from a JCB 2cx Streetmaster? We need a digger function but the machines primary role remains as a loader.

I dont really know but its teh cost of it that would worry me, be easier to sell the 2cx airmaster and buy something with a backhoe too.

I doubt there will be many places for power take off on the 2cx, hydraulics will be quite different I assume, as well the engine seems to be different to a streetmaster.

Simplest thing would be sell the air master to some surfacing lads and buy a 2cx streetmaster.
