Backhoe Loaders

A backhoe loader is a type of construction equipment often used in excavating and grading land. A backhoe loader has a central control cabinet with either a large shovel or bucket attachment on the front and an excavating scoop, or digger, on the back end. Backhoe loaders are often equipped with hydraulic supports at the back end of the vehicle in order to provide stability during digging or dumping operations.
