Backhoe Loaders Frequently Asked Questions
What’s the best way to purchase a backhoe?
We offer a few ways to buy a John Deere backhoe. You can hit the “request a quote” button on a product page for a backhoe, where you can provide contact information and specific questions about the backhoe of interest. We also offer addresses and phone numbers for local dealers you can contact.
What’s the difference between an excavator and a backhoe?
The main difference between a backhoe and an excavator is primarily the size. Backhoes are generally smaller and offer more versatility as they can also drive on roads. We recommend backhoes for smaller construction projects, farming, and landscaping. The right backhoe for John Deere is available at Doggett Equipment.
Why is it called a backhoe if the digging bucket is on the front?
The word backhoe doesn’t refer to the location of the digging bucket, but rather the operation of the equipment. On a backhoe, digging occurs by the machine dragging the bucket backward, as opposed to a shovel which digs by moving forward. Check out our backhoe inventory for the right John Deere backhoe for sale.
What’s the difference between a backhoe and a backhoe loader?
Although the terms are used interchangeably, technically a backhoe loader is a front loader that contains a backhoe attachment arm. Sometimes a backhoe loader is called a tractor-loader-backhoe or TLB. At Doggett Equipment, each John Deere backhoe is a backhoe loader.
Do you carry backhoe attachments?
Yes, we do. Although each John Deere backhoe comes with an arm and digging bucket, we do sell a backhoe attachment that can be purchased separately. Use the drop-down menu to specify a particular backhoe attachment part.
