A backhoe is an excavation machine that utilises a digging bucket on the end of a two-part articulated arm. Backhoe loaders are typically loader or tractor units that have a loader-style bucket on the front and a backhoe add-on (a digging bucket on the end of a two-part articulated arm) attached to the rear. Backhoes are excellent at staying stable while moving heavy loads, as they utilise hydraulic outriggers, stabilisers and a pair of legs that can be lowered down for extra stability. Backhoes are often used for the laying of telephone cables or pipes within mining or civil earthworks projects, and can also be driven directly to the job site (meaning you won’t need to use a long-bed truck to transport the machine). Backhoes have a hinged boom on the back, attached to a machine that looks a bit like a tractor. Furthermore, they have a two-piece boom, and the hydraulic system manages the arm, ensuring that material can be pulled towards the machine and then lifted up. What is a backhoe used for? When it comes to using a backhoes they can be used for a large range of different projects. When hiring a backhoe you are essentially getting an excavator and a wheel loader in one making it ideal for a large range of projects, while you be able to save money and time as you wouldn't have to hire separate machines. The different sizes such as 2x4, 4x4 and a tracked backhoe make it ideal for all terrains and seasons. Some of the most common uses of backhoe work include: excavation landscaping breaking asphalt construction demolition clearing snow lifting and positioning cables material transport paving roads ditch digging trenching and foundation work. Backhoe loaders are touted for their ability to effectively combine the capabilities of three different machines into one, enabling project managers to utilise less machines on site for the same job. Backhoes can also be used for tasks such as tree planting and small-scale drilling with an auger attachment, and in combination with a front-end loader, are perfect for tasks like clearing dirt or snow from a certain area. Backhoes truly are versatile and innovative machines useful for a wide range of project applications.Read more here
