 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 710L backhoe loader digs to 17 feet 3 inches with bucket tearout force of 18,959 lb.-ft.

The L47 and M62 backhoe loaders replace the L39, L45 and M59 models.

JCB is betting that small will be big in future backhoe sales, as it has introduced the 3CX compact backhoe loader at ICUEE in Louisville.

The C Series backhoe loader lineup includes the B95C (with tool carrier, TR, and long-reach, LR, versions) and B110C. 

The L Series backhoes loaders includes six models: 310L EP, 310L, 310SL, 310SL HL, 315SL and 410L.
