Brief description of the backhoe loader
Backhoe loaders are the machines most commonly found on construction sites. They are multi-purpose vehicles that can be used to excavate and load bulk materials. Various attachments can also be fitted to them, such as shears and demolition hammers. The machine can also be fitted with hydraulic attachments that allow it to be used for other tasks besides digging and lifting. The bucket of this machine can be replaced by powered attachments such as a grapple, hammer, auger or log and root cutter. The most commonly used types of attachment are those that allow the operator to break up asphalt, stony soils and concrete. The tiger tine attachment is used to break through frost or harder soil.
