Buying a Used Backhoe Loader

Put simply, a backhoe loader is really just a tractor with a loader attachment at the front and an excavating implement, the backhoe, attached at the rear. JCB is widely credited with inventing the backhoe loader, so they are often referred to as simply JCBs, much in the same way that a vacuum cleaner is known as a Hoover. A backhoe loader is a major piece of plant, capable of carrying out some pretty heavy duties, but it is also a relatively compact and agile machine, able to get into tight spaces and carry out some quite precise work.

Used Backhoe Loaders for SaleVersability the Key

They are also extremely versatile machines and can be found widely throughout industry, in construction, demolition and road-working duties. They are also used extensively in excavation works. They all have the same standard configuration, but they do come in a wide variety of sizes to suit different markets, and the control layout and engine also differ. Other machines, such as tractors, can also have backhoe implements added to them, but strictly speaking, these are not backhoe loaders. The machines get their 'backhoe' name from the rear scooping movement the bucket goes through as it operates.

The standard backhoe loader is a diesel-engined tractor with four wheels and an enclosed cab. Mounted at the rear is the backhoe, connected to the chassis by means of an articulated arm, operating much like a hand connected to an arm. What would be the elbow points skywards and the 'hand' of the bucket faces inwards towards the cab. The main job of the backhoe loader is certainly to dig, but they are also often used for general lifting and loading duties. To the front of the machine is a standard loader, much like you would see on the front of a tractor. This can be used for heavier lifting and loading duties. It can also be used for earth-moving and terrain-forming activities. Inside the cab there are two sets of controls: one for the backhoe and one for the front loader. This means that the operator is always facing the direction of the implement he is using.

Four Wheel Steering a Must?

One feature to consider when buying a backhoe loader is the steering mechanism. If agility is important, a four-wheel-steering set-up may be a good idea. This allows all four wheels to be turned the same way, effectively allowing the machine to move sideways. The back and front wheels can also be turned in opposite directions, allowing the backhoe loader to turn almost within its own length. There is also the option of four- or two-wheel drive, with four-wheel-drive and steer machines tending to be a bit more expensive - both to buy and to maintain.

Care must be taken in operating the backhoe loader as they can be very top heavy, especially when lifting heavy loads high above the machine. This is where the stabilisers come into play. These are legs that are loaded to provide extra stability and take weight off the tyres when involved in heavy lifting duties. The backhoe loader also has a number of alternative attachments to widen the scope of work that can be tackled.
