Cat® Backhoes are used in typical backhoe applications such as digging footings, basements, and drainage ditches, utility trenching, back-filling, and maintaining slopes and embankments in construction, industrial, and landscaping settings. They are ideal for demolishing concrete when paired with Cat H45/H55/H65 hammers.

Benefits and Features

Used in typical backhoe applications such as digging footings, basements, and drainage ditches, utility trenching, back-filling, and maintaining slopes and embankments in construction, industrial, and landscaping settings.

Operators can dig, excavate, side-shift, and even re-position 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.

Sideshift provides the ability to dig close to walls, exposing brick ledges, backfilling and widening trenches.

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 compact package of the machine and backhoe allows the operator to maneuver more easily in confined areas and leaves more trailer space for other Cat Work Tools.

Optional auxiliary hydraulic lines provide auxiliary flow to the end of the stick to operate Mini Hydraulic Excavator hammers, augers, ditch cleaning buckets, thumbs, and vibratory plate compactors.
