John Deere has unveiled three new backhoe attachments to complement its lineup of work tools.

The BH9B, BH10B and BH11B are designed for operators handling light construction, agricultural, landscaping or utility work. 

Similar to other John Deere attachments, these backhoes are ideal for use on John Deere G-Series skid steers and compact track loaders. 

“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 for John Deere Construction and 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.”

The new backhoe attachments are ideal for those working in tight spaces by offering swing speed control and 180-degree capabilities to help improve machine stability. Workspace visibility is optimized with the attachments’ sleek, low-profile design. 

Furthermore, 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 of the backhoe attachments. Each new backhoe model includes a 34 to 45 litres-per-minute hydraulic flow range for smooth operation. 

The new backhoe attachments provide different levels of maximum dig depths ranging of 2,945 mm on the BH9B, 2,945 mm on the BH10B and 3,380 mm on the BH11B. 

The BH model bucket widths range from 455 mm to 915 mm. As well, the new and improved heavy-duty buckets feature an easy-cleanout design for tough jobs.

For increased versatility, the backhoe standard-tilt seating capabilities offer easy moving between machine ingress and egress. 

The backhoe also has a grab handle and open design for convenient manoeuvring.
