Caterpillar struck a dial of power and efficiency with
Its top of the line 446 backhoe loader when it
presented the D series variation of the machine. The
102 HP machine also features a brand-new operator station
and uses optional joystick controls. The dig

Bobcat offered its compact backhoe loaders a power
increase when the company presented the 2nd generation
B series to the lineup. The 31.5 HP B100 received
a 45% boost in backhoe container breakout force
and a 27% jump in the breakout force of the dipper
The 46 HP B300 received a 44% boost in dipper.
breakout force and a 21% increase in the breakout
force of the container. The 3 model line
includes the B250, which is a 31.5 HP sideshift
unit. Comparable to the larger B300, the B250 also
features all wheel steering and 4 wheel drive.

Case included a fair bit to its M series backhoe
loaders, by changing to family 3 engines to fulfill
Tier 2 emission requirements. The new devices
of the M series have quieter, larger displacement
engines for much better carrying capability. They
have increased torque rise for faster cycles
of loader and backhoe operations.
With 500 hour intervals of oil changes and simple
to gain access to transmission mounted hydraulic pumps,
the M series is definitely a force to be reckoned
with on the planet of backhoes.
The most recent compact backhoe loader from this
company can reach digging depths of approximately 12
feet with its backhoe. Working as a loader, the
BL-580 has an operating capability of 3,406 pounds
with a breakout force of 9,370 pounds.
Both the loader and backhoe are geared up with
standard auxiliary hydraulics with a 2 way
flow to accommodate a range of attachments,
that includes booms, breakers, augers, and
even compactors. Other clever features consist of
hydrostatic 4 wheel drive for power and traction,
and all wheel steering for a tight radius.
Komatsu revealed that the optional excavator
style joystick controls would be used on its
5 model lineup of backhoes. The lineup has
Been upgraded with increased hydraulic speed,
stronger elements, and Tier 2 engines. The
entire Komatsu line consists of the 87 HP WB140
series, and teh 94 HP WB150 series.
The standard model found with each series features
a 4 speed mechanical transmission complete with
a torque converter. The fifth model from Komatsu
is the WB150, with offers an all star wheel design
with a powershift transmission and anti theft
The 410H is the trademark of John Deere, offering
92 HP. The 410H also uses the overall machine
control system, which integrates control for the
engine, transmission, hydraulics, and brakes so
that the system can respond in an effective way
to the many different task demands.
Because acquiring the Fermec line, Terex has actually marketed
a complete and remarkable line of backhoes. The
designs consist of the 92 HP TX760B and the 100 HP
TX860B. At 100 HP too are the 860SX, 860 Elite,
and the 970 Elite. Both the 760 and 860 designs
feature 4 speed shuttle bus gearboxes and travel
speeds of approximately 25.8 miles per hour.
