A backhoe rental, also called a rear actor or back actor, is a piece of excavating equipment or a digger. Backhoes were first designed by a British company called JCB, their first tractor equipped with both a hoe and a front-mounted loading bucket was completed in 1953 and set the standard pattern for future designs of backhoe loader. The backhoe is very popular throughout England and Ireland, since it was first created there. The inventor of the machine, Joseph Cyril Bamford, is the only non-American in the US construction hall of fame. Today, backhoe rental is very popular among construction and excavation sites.
