Cat® Backhoes are used for digging footings, drainage ditches, utility trenching, backfilling and maintaining slopes and embankments in a variety of construction, industrial and landscape settings.  When paired with Cat Hammers, the backhoes are ideal for demolishing concrete. Equipped with a thumb, they can be used for handling brush and bulky objects such as rocks and stumps. With an auger, they do extremely well at drilling holes for fence posts, trees and shrubs.

The Cat Backhoe is designed for use on Cat Skid Steer Loaders, Multi Terrain Loaders and Compact Track Loaders.
