The backhoe loader combines a backhoe, a loader and a tractor into one piece of equipment, the bucket at the front and the backhoe at the rear. It is used as both a loader and a excavator.
The loader digger is used to pick up and carry large amounts of loose material.
The loader is the main tool of the machine. It’s used to dig up hard, compact material, usually earth, or to lift heavy loads.
Application of the loader-excavator
The machine is a small, multi-purpose, high-efficiency engineering machine. At the same time, it has basic loading and digging functions. It is suitable for digging ditches, loading and unloading earth, material handling, or basic backfilling, etc. It is especially suitable for working in narrow sites. It can also be equipped with hydraulic hammers, hydraulic rams and other accessories. This satisfies a variety of construction requirements, and has a wide range of adaptability, high efficiency, and good economy. The loader is an ideal equipment for highways, bridges, tap water, gas pipelines, power construction, oil pipeline maintenance and various municipal emergency repair projects.
Comparing the loader-digger with normal excavators
Compared with large single-function equipment (such as crawler excavators), loader-excavators are compact. And they can also move around on various construction sites and even run on highways. Although some small loaders and excavators may be smaller than loader-diggers, if the contractor wants to carry out both excavation and loading operations, the use of this machine can save a lot of time and money.
