The embodiments of the invention in which an exclusive property or privilege is claimed are defined as follows:
1. Any excavator boom assembly directly installed on a moldboard.
2. Any excavator boom assembly directly installed on brackets between a moldboard and an undercarriage or supporting machine.
3. Any excavator boom assembly directly installed on a part used as a stabilizer.

    Presently, excavators are stabilized by various means, two or more legs can be extended from the excavator undercarriage and be used as stabilizers. Another mean of stabilizing an excavator is to have a moldboard lowered from the undercarriage and by contacting the ground, secure the excavator. These two methods of stabilizing an excavator requires the excavator to be mounted on an undercarriage and the stabilizing device to be mounted to that same undercarriage. I have found a way to manufacture simpler, lighter, and more compact excavator attachment, thus allowing the system to be installed on small machines like: lawn tractor, ATV's, etc. . . . .
