Backhoe Rentals

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.

Backhoe Rental & Loader Backhoes

Backhoe Rentals

Backhoe Rentals: The backhoe uses a large digging bucket at the end of a two-part articulating arm that is uses to tear through tough surfaces.  The section of the arm closest to the vehicle is known as the boom, and the section which carries the bucket is known as the dipper. The boom is attached to the vehicle through a pivot known as the kingpost, which allows the arm to slew left and right, usually through a total of around 200 degrees. Most modern backhoes are powered by hydraulics to make digging easier. Many popular construction equipment companies manufacture backhoes such as CAT, CASE, John Deere, Caterpillar, Komatsu, and Kubota. Backhoe rental is very common for large scale construction jobs that require a great deal of digging, loading, and utility applications.

Backhoe Rental

A backhoe loader rental is a tractor like vehicle with an arm and bucket mounted on the back and a front loader mounted on the front. Backhoes usually have both a front bucket and a rear hoe; these are often referred to as an excavator. They can either be manufactured or a backhoe attachment can be added to a loader to help it perform the digging functions. A backhoe for rent is capable of digging up to 15 feet deep. Sometimes a backhoe bucket is reversed to work in a power shovel configuration. This is generally when loading from a large stockpile, for picking up or filling material next to walls, to increase the reach of the machine, or working around obstacles such as pipes.
