John Deere has released three new backhoe attachments. The BH9B, BH10B, and BH11B are designed for operators handling light construction, agricultural, landscaping, or utility work. These backhoes are ideal for use on John Deere G-Series skid steers and compact track loaders.

The new backhoe attachments are ideal for those working in tight spaces by offering swing speed control and 180-degree capabilities to help maximize efficiency and improve machine stability. Workspace visibility is optimized with the attachments’ low-profile design. Cushioned cylinders allow for smooth operations and limit shock loads during use.

A two-lever control of boom or swing (left lever) and dipperstick or bucket (right lever) allow for precise control and movement. Each new backhoe model includes a 9-12 gallons-per-minute hydraulic flow range for smooth operation. The new backhoes provide different levels of maximum dig depths ranging of 110 inches on the BH9B, 116 inches on the BH10B, and 133 inches on the BH11B. The BH model bucket widths range from 18 inches to 36 inches. BH10B and BH11B buckets offer three linkage positions to maximize curl, reach, or breakout force. Breakout force on the BH9B is 3,895 lbs., 5,675 lbs. on the BH10B, and 5,675 lbs. on the BH11B.     

For increased versatility, the backhoe standard-tilt seating capabilities offer easy moving between machine ingress and egress. The backhoe also has a convenient grab handle and open design for convenient maneuvering.
