You must have seen a backhoe, but may not know that it is called
a backhoe. Whenever a building is being made or roads are dug it
is used to lift chunks of earth. It is actually a machine used
for excavating. It is a device which is attached to the rear
side of the tractor. It lifts heavy stuff like earth or any
other heavy load.
It is very expensive and if you have a one time need for it then
instead of buying it you can take it on rent. It has got its
name because the scooper type bucket that is placed at the rear
side of the tractor. It performs the work that a bulldozer does.
The device is mounted on a tractor. The biggest advantage is
that it can be taken directly to different areas, whereas other
machines have to be towed into the work area. Hence these other
machines need outside power sources.
It needs a lot of operator's skill to operate it. An
inexperienced operator will not be able to use it, <A
nfo</A> lists requirements. The design of the backhoe is like a
human hand/arm is extending to scoop something or to keep
something. Thus, to operate it you need a lot of skill and
Nowadays backhoes are run on hydraulic method. They are like
buckets attached to the rear of the tractor and it is a device
which is attached the rear side of the tractor. It lifts heavy
stuff like earth or any other heavy load. There are three parts
of it and it is the first part of the machine.
The second part is called a loader. It is in the front side of
the tractor. A big rectangular shaped (most of the time) device
which scoops material etc. It is not supposed to be used for
digging. It can be replaced with devices to get a street sweeper
and if required even a pallet fork.
The main part of a backhoe is the tractor. It is the main
machine. There is seat and the person operating it can move 360
degrees so that he may reach all the controls. There are
different sets of control for the backhoe and another set of
controls for the loader. It can move over rough areas and has
rugged tires and an engine which is run on diesel.
Hence, all these three parts, the backhoe and the tractor and
the loader do the job together. They all have different
functions and work together in getting the task accomplished.
Backhoes can be taken anywhere in a construction site some of
them are so designed that the front and the rear parts can be
interchanged with other instruments like a hydraulic hammer or
an auger or may be a grapple even an asphalt grinder.
