The Backhoe is a machine that works with combustion and hydraulically and is used to perform excavations in a wide variety of terrains, which works by burying a bucket or shovel that extracts earth or materials deposited in the ground, later drags them and deposits them in its interior. A whole wheel-moving machine on wheels!
The backhoe works under its three main parts: a tractor, a loader and a backhoe. In the first place, the tractor allows the tools to move quickly and safely around the ground where it will be used, and it is the tractor that has the hydraulic jacks that allow leveling or holding if necessary. Secondly, the loader is capable of transporting large quantities of material (depending on the size of the bucket), it is designed to excavate and load this material, that is, the bucket fills uneven ground or pushes the earth like a plow. And thirdly there is the backhoe which consists of a toothed blade exclusively designed to handle compact earth no matter what type of soil it is, or to lift different types of materials if necessary. This backhoe works similarly to a normal excavator in the sense that it digs behind the vehicle, instead of outward like a wheel loader or caterpillar. However, it should not be confused with an excavator since the reach and capacity of its articulated arm are for different needs; one is for light construction and the other for heavy.
The backhoe is usually used to remove, open furrows and then extract large amounts of soil.
These excavations are generally used to place pipes, cables, drains and, above all, for the laying of foundations in buildings.
It requires prior training for the operation of a backhoe, many manufacturers brands offer courses for operators where they are instructed in good handling practices and safety for this equipment. It is recommended not to be operated by unskilled without supervision.
