John Deere has announced the development of three new backhoe attachments which will be added to its construction lineup. The BH9B, BH10B, and BH11B are designed for operators dealing with light construction, agricultural, landscaping, and utility work. They work seamlessly with John Deere G-Series skid steers and compact track loaders.
The backhoe attachments are especially helpful in tight spaces – they offer swing speed control and 180-degree capabilities to help maximize efficiency while improving stability. Visibility is also maximized with these attachments due to their low-profile designs. With cushioned cylinders, operators will experience smoother operations and be able to limit shock loads during use.
“With the growing need for work in compact spaces, these new backhoe attachments provide contractors, landscapers and agricultural material handlers with the power and variety to tackle any job efficiently and swiftly,” said Jason Simmons, attachments engineering supervisor with John Deere Construction & Forestry. “The new lineup of backhoe attachments is designed to provide power with improved hydraulics and sleek design to operators working across different job sites and applications.”
Operators will also enjoy more precise control and movement, with a two-lever control of boom or swing (left lever) and dipperstick or bucket (right lever). Each new backhoe model also includes a 34-45 liters-per-minute hydraulic flow range for smoother operation. Additionally, the BH model bucket widths range from 18 inches to 36 inches.For more information on the new backhoe attachments or other John Deere equipment, contact your local John Deere dealer or visit www.JohnDeere.com.
