Backhoes

A backhoe has three pieces of construction equipment- a tractor, a backhoe and a loader. The machine uses different attachments to perform various tasks such as drilling holes, digging trenches and carrying heavy tools, and it is particularly useful for plumbing and road works.

Groundbreaker's backhoes are supplied with operators who have high levels of experience and knowledge, and we also offer attachments including:

  • Rockbreakers
  • Augers
  • Rock grinders
  • Rock saws
  • Tilt buckets
  • Tilt hitchs

About Backhoes

The backhoe is particularly useful on bigger sites. The front bucket and hoe combination on wheels allows for much versatility, enabling the operator to perform nearly every earthmoving function. However, backhoes are not effective on tight or small jobs or on soft or wet ground. A backhoe is a good machine to use for:

  • Detailed excavations
  • Trenching
  • Backfilling trenches
  • Contouring
  • Removing concrete
  • Building Swales
  • Sanding up trenches
  • Stockpiling
  • Loading
  • Trimming road base for kerb
  • Bulking out
  • Levelling
  • Cutting and filling
  • Landscaping
  • Clean-ups
  • Swimming pools
