The backhoe is an affordable and versatile product, while they are also used in rural settings to maintain roads and irrigation systems, among numerous other applications.
India is by far the largest market for backhoe loaders, the machine is popular in emerging markets across the world, particularly in the Americas, eastern Europe, the Middle East and Africa, where the concept has been well-established over the years and a multi-function machine which can do a bit of everything suits the market.
“Backhoe loaders are a relatively mature product form, so most markets see a relatively steady demand for backhoe loaders compared to other machine forms.
“Specifically, within the United States and Canadian markets, some backhoe customers have migrated a part of their fleet to compact excavators, compact track loaders or skid steer loaders to better fit the jobs they serve. However, many other customers still value the self-transportability of the backhoe from jobsite to jobsite.
“Additionally, once the machine gets on a jobsite, it provides versatility like no other machine, tackling various tasks from trenching and backfilling to stockpiling and loading trucks, and everything in-between.”
Backhoe loaders may not be changing at quite the same pace as some other types of construction equipment, but the machines are evolving into being more productive while consuming less fuel – a combination that is hard to argue with.
