What is a backhoe?

Photograph of the VF8.23F Backhoe loader from Ranko Equipment working on a construction siteA backhoe loader combines a backhoe, a loader, and a tractor into one piece of equipment. The example pictured here is the VF8.23F.

A backhoe loader, also called a loader backhoe, is a heavy equipment machine that consists of a tractor-like unit fitted with a loader-style shovel/bucket on the front and a backhoe on the back.

Due to its relatively small size and versatility, backhoe loaders are very common in urban engineering and small construction projects such as building a small house, fixing urban rods, etc.
