Identifying Jubilee backhoe

Is there a way I can tell the maker of the backhoe on my Jubilee? This site sells a manual for a Wagner, but it's $60 and I don't want to buy it if it's the wrong one. I see a lot of references to a Sherman hoe in these messages. There's a barely legible nameplate on the control box that says something like "Gone Automatic Machinery, Vermont." Does this help? There is nothing I can find on the hoe itself. Thanks!
Tim

Just read your earlier post below. Sounds like you have the exact same thing as mine. Its a Sherman model 54C if it is indeed the same. Mine has a tag riveted on it. Big pump mounted on the power take off? Do you have the Sherman O/U transmission also? Mine leaks adequately to remind me it is 46 years old an needs to be handled gently.

The 9N,2N,8N Newsletter has copies of the manuals for Sherman hoes made by Wain-roy.
I got one for mine for a coupla bucks worth of stamps rather than $60. Exploded parts pictures and operating instructions.

Thanks for the info that the "9N,2N,8N newsletter has copies of the manuals for Sherman hoes." Please excuse a dumb question, but where can I find this newsletter? I am new here. Thanks!

My Sherman has a large plate on the arm that says Sherman in large block letters(Plat aprox. 3x12)A picture would be worth a thousand words in this case. I will see if I can come up with one of my hoe and scan it and send it to you if you send me your email address.My wagner loader has a plate on the frame under the control valves saying it was built in Minneapolis or St. Paul as I remember. I will look and let you know if I am wrong.I am not sure where Sherman was butlt and would like to know.
I can't honestly say that I can identify any of the other mfgs. by sight . I have seen other hoes and the differences visually were from slight to "thats a backhoe?" Hope to hear from you. Chris christian@seanet.com

You will more than likely find that most of the backhoes were really manufactured by Wein-Roy located in Hubberdson Mass. They did 90% and others put their name on it such as Ford, Sherman, Lester

Ken - Thanks for the Wein-Roy info. That's interesting, but my real goal in determining the make is to be able to purchase the correct manual (no small undertaking at $60!) Do you think that the Wagner manual sold on this site would be appropriate?

Yes the company is still around. They are locaed in Hubberdston Mass. I think the area code is 978. Don't know to much more about the company but I have have 3 backhoes on various tractors I have rebuilt. All of them were as strong (if not stronger) than the neighboors 916 turbo and another friends 924 extendahoe.

Did they build a truck mounted rig called the Hoptoe? My uncle had one of them when I was a kid.He could do most anything with that rig!

Today's Featured Article - Oliver 550 Clutch Overhaul Tips - by Greg Sheppard. I got my 1964 Oliver Model 550 (serial 141-139-519) second-hand and used it for several years before the clutch began to slip. After taking up the pedal linkage several times I saw it was going to take more than that. The engine had been leaking oil at the rear seal and I suspected ... [Read Article]
