What is a backhoe?

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.
