Skid Steer Loader Backhoe
CAT backhoes are used for digging footings, drainage ditches, utility trenching, backfilling and maintaining slopes and embankments in a variety of construction, industrial and landscape settings. When paired with CAT Hammers, the backhoes are ideal for demolishing concrete. Equipped with a thumb, they can be used for handling brush and bulky objects, such as rocks and stumps. With an auger, they do extremely well at drilling holes for fence posts, trees and shrubs.
Productivity and Maneuverability
- In-cab operation increases productivity by reducing the amount of time required to reposition compared to traditional skid steer loader backhoes, allowing for faster cycle times than competitive units. The comopact package of the machine and backhoe allows the operator maneuver more easily in confined areas and leaves more trailer space for other CAT Work Tools.
- Operators can dig, excavate, side-shift, and even reposition the machine and backhoe without ever leaving the seat. Operators can work for extended periods of time, with little fatigue since the cab offers comfort and cover from extreme temperatures or inclement weather conditions.
Optional Auxiliary Hydraulic LInes
- Side-shift provides the ability to dig close to walls, exposing brick ledges, backfilling and widening trenches.
- Optional auxiliary hydraulic lines provide auxiliary flow to the end of the stick to operate Mini Hydraulic Excavator ditch cleaning buckets, augers, hammers, and vibratory plate compactors.
