    I would not run a backhoe on that small of a machine without a subframe. All the stress placed on the machine from using a loader and 3 point backhoe goes on the transaxle and bellhousing and it's not unheard of for them to crack under the stress. If you can get a subframe mounted backhoe it will work better and you won't have to worry about breaking your machine in half.
