Backhoes are the swiss army knives of construction equipment, acting as both a wheel loader and an excavator. Because there are multiple moving components to a backhoe, a backhoe consists of many parts that require constant care and attention.
The backhoe operates independently and endures similar wear to a traditional excavator. Be sure to browse both genuine and aftermarket suppliers of bucket teeth on Gearflow to keep your ground engaging tools effective.
The backhoe uses several hydraulic cylinders to maneuver effectively including the boom cylinder, bucket cylinder, dipper cylinder, stabilizer cylinder, swing cylinder, and extender cylinder. The front loader also uses a set of hydraulic cylinders to maneuver the front bucket.
Be sure to keep your hydraulics sealed properly to keep your backhoe operating properly. A cracked seal can lead to hydraulic fluid leaks that can limit or prevent the backhoe, front loader, or stabilizers from operating. When replacing a seal, it is best to replace all of your hydraulic seals with the purchase of a seal kit to maintain consistent wear across your backhoe's hydraulic systems.
The axles on a backhoe rarely need replacement but if you are in need of a new axle, the front axle needs to be made specifically to fit either front wheel drive or four wheel drive machines.
The engine on a backhoe is very similar to other dirt and off road engines so be sure to check out our aftermarket and OEM engine options that fit with your backhoe.
