Composition Of Backhoe Loader
Backhoe loader is a single unit consisting of three construction equipment. A backhoe loader includes: powertrain, loading side, and backhoe side. Each device is designed for a specific type of work. On a typical construction site, an excavator operator usually needs to use all three components to get the job done.
Powertrain: The core structure of a backhoe loader is the powertrain. The powertrain design of the backhoe loader can run freely on various rough terrain. Powerful turbocharged diesel engine, large deep gear tires, and cab with driving controls (steering wheel, brakes, etc.).
Loader: The loader is assembled at the front of the equipment, and the excavator is assembled at the back. These two components provide completely different capabilities. The loader can perform many different tasks. In many applications, you can think of it as a powerful large cormorant or coffee spoon. It is generally not used for digging, but is mainly used for picking up and handling large quantities of loose material. In addition, it can also be used to bulldoze like a plough, or to level the ground, just like using a knife to spread butter on bread. The operator can control the loader while driving the tractor.
Excavator: The excavator is the main tool of the backhoe loader. It can be used to dig dense hard materials (often soil) or to lift heavy objects (such as sewer culverts). An excavator can lift these materials and stack them on the side of the opening. Simply put, an excavator is an extremely powerful huge arm or finger, which consists of three parts: the boom, the stick, and the bucket.
Stabilizing feet: Other additional components that are generally seen on backhoe loaders include the two stabilizing feet behind the rear wheels. These feet are essential for the operation of the excavator. When the excavator performs the digging operation, the feet can absorb the impact of the weight. Without stabilizing feet, the weight of heavy loads or the downward force generated when digging the ground will damage the wheels and tires, and the entire tractor will spring up. The stabilizing feet can keep the tractor stable and minimize the impact force when the excavator excavates. The stabilizing feet can also secure the tractor so that it does not slip into a ditch or cave.
