Backhoe hire near you

Choosing backhoe hire suppliers can be a long and complicated process, so iseekplant has simplified it with a handy guide outlining everything you need to know.

The backhoe was given its name as most of the action takes place at the back of the machine. People choosing backhoe hire suppliers may also be planning to use the backhoe for tasks like small scale drilling with an auger attachment, tree planting, and clearing earth material or debris.

There are many backhoe hire suppliers in the market as backhoes are widely used and versatile machines. As backhoes can be mounted either on a standard diesel tractor or front loader, they can be used for a variety of tasks including foundations, trenches and ditch digging.

Why you should look for Backhoe hire suppliers

Backhoes are excellent at staying stable while moving heavy loads, as they have a set of legs that can be lowered if required. Backhoes are often used for the laying of telephone cables or pipes within mining and civil earthworks projects. Backhoes can also be driven directly to the jobsite, meaning you won’t need to use a long-bed truck to transport the machine.

Backhoes have a hinged boom attached to the back and looks a bit like a tractor. Backhoes have a two-piece boom managed by the hydraulic system, ensuring that material can be pulled towards the machine and then lifted up.
