How do skid steer loaders and backhoes work?

from: Groshan Fabiola

Skid steer loaders are machines used in different types of

construction sites, and are applicable especially in tight

spaces because they are small and easy maneuverable.

They are equipped with wheels and can turn in their own tracks,

making them extremely valuable for applications that require a

compact, agile loader. They have light weight and so, they can

be towed behind a pickup truck. The skid steel loader has four

wheels and its characteristic is that the left-side drive wheels

are independent of the right-side drive wheels. This way, wheel

speed and direction of rotation of the wheels will determine the

direction the machine will turn. The skid steel loaders have a

simple operating system. Inside the cabin there are two

joysticks: a left hand joystick and a right hand joystick. The

left hand one is made for controlling the direction. The right

hand one is for controlling the loader arms and bucket. By

pulling the joystick back, the arms of the machine will raise;

by pushing the joystick forward, the arms will be lowered. In

order to tilt the bucket up the joystick must be moved to the

left. By moving it to the right the bucket will dump. All the

system is powered by hydraulic pumps, meaning that there is no

mechanical transmission.

The Skid steel loader is suitable for digging and moving

landscaping and other building materials. Due to its numerous

tools it can also grade, jackhammer cement and load trucks. Some

of the special tools of the skid steer loaders are: a dirt

bucket, utility grapple bucket, pallet forks, utility fork,

angle blade, auger, broom, cold planer, hydraulic hammer,

landscape rake and tillers, material handling arm, stump grinder

trencher and a vibratory compactor. These tools make skid steel

loaders quite useful because there will not be necessary 10

machines any more to complete all these functions.

Another useful machine in the construction field is the

backhoes. They are generally used for many different jobs and

can replace many other types of heavy equipment at the

construction site.

They are designed in a unique way; they have tools sticking out

from every way of the machine. The backhoes can be considered to

have three pieces of construction equipment combined into one

unit: a tractor, a loader and a classical backhoe. Because the

backhoes can use all these three functions at a construction

site they are considered to be quite valuable and replace other


The backhoe's core structure is the tractor. Its design allows

the machine to move easily over different type of rough terrain.

It is equipped with a turbocharged diesel engine, with tires and

a cabin for the pilot.

The loader is another part of the backhoe. It is attached in the

front, while the backhoe is situated in the back. The loader is

used as a spoon that picks up and carries a lot of loose

material. It can also be used for smoothing things over, or for

pushing dirt.

The backhoe loader also has a backhoe in the back of the

tractor. Its function is to dig earth, or to lift heavy loads

and then drop them in a pile at the side of the hole. All kinds

of holes can be digged with a backhoe but most of all is

suitable for ditches. In order not to fall inside the hole, the

backhoes are equipped with stabilizer legs.

The backhoes are used mostly for digging ditches with the

backhoe, and then for carrying out the dirt with the loader.

After the work is done in that are, the loader will fill back

the ditch with the extracted dirt. These machines, the skid

steer loader and the backhoe are very useful nowadays because

they are very efficient and they save a lot of time because the

operator doesn't have to switch between two different pieces of

equipment any more.
