Backhoe simulation

We are looking for the best method to derive reaction forces resulting from digging with the dipper stick of a backhoe. We need to see the maximum resistance force that is generated along a sweep path of motion. Think of the bucket hitting a rock all along the path and the cylinder developing top pressure all along. We need to see the reaction forces in the backhoe system at a number of points. Can we generate this into a nice plot for each point? We need to see where the maximum stress happens.

Thanks in advance.
