Backhoes are used for digging holes in the ground with their excavator type buckets and the front bucket is used for pushing dirt around and loading it into dump trucks. Most backhoes have wheels, if they have tracks they are called trackhoes. You can find more information about Backhoes below the "backhoes for sale" listings.

A backhoe, also known as a backhoe loader, is a versatile piece of heavy machinery used primarily for digging trenches and ditches on construction sites. A typical backhoe consists of a diesel-powered tractor, a front loader attachment and a scooper bucket controlled by hydraulics. The backhoe gets its name from the placement of the scooper bucket assembly on the back of the tractor.

Many construction companies consider the backhoe to be the workhorse of earthmovers. It is often the only piece of heavy equipment brought onto small to medium landscaping projects, since a backhoe can duplicate the work of a bulldozer, front end loader and excavator. Because the equipment is mounted on a diesel-powered tractor chassis, a backhoe can be driven directly to the different job areas. Other specialized machines often need to be towed into the site and require external power sources.

A backhoe operator needs to learn how to operate both a front end loader and a backhoe scooper. The front end loader is not as complicated as the backhoe attachment, but the operator must use a joystick control while simultaneously driving the tractor. The front end loader will either remove excess dirt and material from the site or place it back in the hole, a process called backfilling. The front-mounted bucket can also tamp down loose soil and create a level grade.

As an operator, you need to always be aware of your surroundings to avoid accidents. You should never operate a backhoe under the influence of drugs or alcohol. If an accident did occur you may have to contact a Houston criminal defense attorney. An on the job accident could result in charges and you would need the best attorney to help defend your case.

The backhoe attachment is where the operator's skill and experience come into play. The action of a backhoe is similar to a human reaching out and drawing back a handful of sand at the beach, but humans perform this task through instinct and muscle memory. A backhoe uses three separate joints to duplicate the movement. One joint extends the entire arm out to the area to be dug, much like a human shoulder. The next joint works like an elbow, curling and flexing to draw the bucket back. The final joint works like a wrist, pulling and pushing the bucket through the soil. All of these joints are powered by hydraulic pistons, controlled by levers inside the tractor compartment.
