SOME FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT EXCAVATORS
What Is the Difference Between an Excavator and a Backhoe?
Although both excavators and backhoes can be used for digging purposes, there are some key differences between the two. A backhoe has a standard tractor body with a boom bucket at the back. With backhoes, you even get the option of adding a front attachment.
On the other hand, excavators only have a digging bucket or some other attachment on the front. While excavators are used for digging, lifting large objects, landscaping, and demolition purposes, backhoes are more versatile and are used for digging, loading, lifting, pushing and moving as well.
