I foolishly paid no attention to my pins and had one drop out of the swing arm. Then I put it in a high stress situation and broke off an ear of the swing arm. I had it welded and it seemed like it might work but sadly it broke within the first hour of operation.
I had checked around for a used one but was told my casting number had an application casting number and I could not find what I was looking for.
Now I am confused about what to do. I do not know how application numbers differ from each other. Or perhaps there are places I can check for used parts. Any help for where to look for a used part or how to differentiate between these casting numbers would be greatly appreciated.

Or you could measure everything up and find a replacement.

Shortcuts might be faster but they are never cheaper!

Good luck bud!

I'm not sure what hoe you have on the back - maybe a 9405? If you have the single swing-cylinder setup with that one big cast linkage arm - I might know where there is a good one in a junkyard.

A 9250 hoe used on 300Bs also has the single-arm setup. I stripped some parts recently off a junked 9250 hoe for my own machine, but that cast arm is still there (I didn't need it). I have no idea if the hoe on hte 310a uses the same as the hoe on thte 300B.

Thanks for your response. The tower has 2 swing cylinders. I was told that there were extra casting numbers that indicating a specific set-up. I do not know how accurate that is. Any ideas what a used one should cost? Also where I may find this style? Thanks again.

I just looked in my manual. It shows the hoe as a 9405 and shows twin cylinders. What variations may have been present between these frames? I appreciate your expertise JDE. You have helped me in the past on a rebuild. Thanks.
