Tractor Loader Backhoe

A versatile piece of equipment the Loader Backhoe is equipped with two attachment points that enable it to be converted into a number of different configurations. For example, swap the front bucket out for a set of forks and it is now capable of operating like a rough terrain forklift. Or, add a power jack hammer to the back boom and the operator is set to break up concrete or large rock. The list goes on and on but the common denominator to maximizing the operator’s capabilities is an in-depth training program. Not only will a thorough training course provide the operator with the skills he needs to operate the loader backhoe with its two standard buckets, it will also provide him with a complete understanding of all of the safety and maintenance aspects required to effectively, safely and efficiently operate his machine regardless of its configuration.
