Excavators come in a wide variety
The smaller ones are called a mini-excavator or compact excavator.
years, hydraulic excavator capabilities have expanded far beyond
excavation tasks. With the advent of hydraulic powered attachments such
as a breaker, a grapple or an auger, the excavator is frequently used in
many applications other than excavation. Many excavators feature
quick-attach mounting systems for simplified attachment mounting,
dramatically increasing the machine's utilization on the job site.
Excavators are usually employed together with loaders and bulldozers. Most wheeled versions, and smaller, compact excavators have a small backfill (or dozer-) blade. This is a horizontal bulldozer-like blade attached to the undercarriage and is used for pushing removed material back into a hole.
Excavators are also called diggers and 360-degree excavators, some times abbreviated simply to a 360. Tracked excavators are sometimes called trackhoes by analogy to the backhoe. Even though the 'back' in backhoe refers to the action of the bucket (which pulls "back" toward the machine) and not the location of the shovel, excavators are also occasionally referred to as fronthoes or even just "hoes" .
For your convenience I have translated the pages of this site into the following languages:
Also referred to as a loader backhoe, the backhoe loader is an engineering and excavation vehicle that consists of a tractor, front shovel and bucket and a small backhoe in the rear end.
Due to the small size and versatility, backhoe loaders are common with small construction projects and excavation type work.
Originally invented in Burlington Iowa back in 1857, the backhoe loader is the most common variation of the classic farm tractor. As the name implies, it has a loader assembly on the front and a backhoe attachment on the back.
Anytime the loader and backhoe are attached it is never referred to as a tractor, as it is not normally used for towing and doesn't normally have a PTO.
When the backhoe is permanently attached, the machine will normally have a seat that can swivel to the rear to face the backhoe controls.
Any type of removable backhoe attachments will normally have a separate seat on the attachment itself.
Backhoe loaders are common and can be used for many tasks, which include construction, light transportation of materials, powering building equipment, digging holes and excavating, breaking asphalt, and even paving roads.
You can often replace the backhoe bucket with other tools such as a breaker for breaking and smashing concrete and rock. There are some loader buckets that offer a retractable bottom, which enable it to empty the load more quickly and efficiently.
The retractable bottom loader buckets are often times used for grading and scratching off sand. The front assembly on a backhoe may be either removable or permanently attached. Often times, the bucket can be replaced with other tools or devices.
In order to mount different attachments to the loader, it must be equipped with a tool coupler. The coupler consists of two hydraulic cylinders on the end of the arm assembly, which can expand and retract to allow different tools to be attached to the unit.
There are several types of backhoe loader brands, including New Holland, John Deere, and Case. Some will offer you cabs, while others won't.
The newer types of backhoe loaders even offer you air conditioning, radios, and other accessories that make you feel like you are working with luxury.
Common with excavating jobs, the backhoe can serve many purposes. It can haul equipment and supplies in the loader bucket. Another great use is to cover up dirt when filling in trench lines or covering up pipe that was just put in the ground. The backhoe attachment at the rear is ideal for digging water pipes and sewer pipes.
The best thing about the backhoe loader is the fact that they are easy to operate. You don't need to be a rocket scientist to fully operate this nifty piece of equipment.
