Equipment Type

 Backhoe Loaders

Backhoe loaders are the staple of small earthmoving fleets, with a front bucket that allows them to work as wheel loaders, and with an excavator-style digging mechanism at the back for trenching to depths of 14 feet or more. Backhoes also can be equipped with a front or rear-mounted coupler that allows attachment use.

The 3CX backhoe loader is aimed at the North American rental market and large fleet owners.

JCB’s 3CX and 4CX backhoe loaders now come standard with the company’s Tier 4-Interim Ecomax diesel engines, delivering up to 9 percent better fuel consumption and a 6 percent boost in torque, the company says.

Cat 450F backhoe loader is a four-wheel-drive unit powered by a Cat C4.4 diesel meeting Tier 4-Interim standards. Gross power is increased 5 percent, and torque 30 percent, to 396 lb.-ft.

Among the design enhancements, New Holland’s six new B Series backhoe loaders feature curved booms and flip-up hoods.

Case 570N XT is a tool carrier with a Case turbocharged engine rated at 78 net horsepower.
