Default Hydrolic trencher attachment?

At the Florida Flywheeler's (Antique Tractor and Engine Club) show today I came across a hydrolic-powered trencher, I believe built for a Bob-cat. Does anybody know anything about them? Would it work on the FEL of my Kubota, using the hydrolics that run the claw? I guess the main questions are:
1) would there be enough fluid flow to run the motor, or
2) would it heat the hydrolics up too much running it for an extended period, say 5 to 10 minutes or
3) would the electric switches heat up.
Not planning for much usage, just ocassional runs of 50-100 feet.

Thanks

The ones I am familiar with are built by Bradco (Paladin Construction Group) and are available as either a hydro tractor or a skidsteer attachment. Their website is here: http://paladinconstructiongroup.com/...ory.aspx?ID=79. The chain is maecanically driven by the tractor's PTO; hydraulics are used to raise and lower the boom in relation to the trencher main body. John Deere also offers one under the Frontier brand, which looks similar. A web search also turned up the Bainter Boom Trencher (http://www.bainterconstruction.com/index-4.php) and the Bolton PTO trencher (http://www.boltonpowerequip.com/ptotrencher.html). I would think a skidsteer trencher would require too much hydraulic flow, and would be capable of torquing the loader.

Thanks, Geen. I guess I'm gonna pass on this one anyhow. I had left a message on his viocemail, and e-mailed the man I was told own's it, but have not gotten anything back from him.
I've taken the idea last few years that if I should get something it'll work out, If it don't work out I'm best off with OUT that particular item.
