What is the right backhoe for your job? There are a few factors you need to consider before choosing which backhoe loader you need for your job. Backhoe loaders are great multi-function machines that are both cost and time efficient. The only major differences in backhoe models, aside from size, is their driving capacity, whether they are 4x4 driven, 2x4 driven or tracked.Backhoe loaders are perfect for light to medium workloads on jobs such as small demolition, digging holes, paving roads, breaking asphalt, laying pipes, setting up drainage systems and transporting heavy items. Backhoes are most effective when there is a range of work needing to be completed that could be done by multiple machines, but their individual hire rates are not cost effective.Backhoes are broken up into three parts, the boom, bucket and house, which make it easy for them to complete a range of jobs.
