When deliberating on landscaping your yard, you could be thinking of hiring earthmoving equipment. But with the wide range of options available for hire, it can be confusing to decide on what will be the best piece of machinery to lease. However, one of the most underrated yet highly functional pieces of equipment that you could hire is a backhoe. This type of machinery can perform multiple jobs and could end up being the only machinery that you need for your project. Consider the following unbeatable benefits of a backhoe when hiring earthmoving equipment.
A backhoe is intended for yard work
Although there are types of equipment such as excavators that can facilitate the landscaping process, a backhoe is inherently designed for this type of project! This type of equipment comes in an array of sizes, so you can be guaranteed that you will find out to suit your yard. Secondly, a backhoe can perform tasks such as digging, transportation and so on, which is perfect if you are looking to clear the vegetation, soil or anything else you want to eliminate.
In addition to land preparation, you can also use a backhoe for excavation projects, such as creating holes for fence posts. Moreover, you can also use this equipment for the creation of water features, creating trenches and more. Thus, if you are on a budget and only want to hire one type of earthmoving equipment, then a backhoe will be an ideal solution.
A backhoe works well with multiple attachments
As mentioned above, a backhoe can perform a range of tasks for a single project. However, you may be unaware of how it can accomplish these jobs. This equipment can multitask since it works well with a host of attachments. Thus, rather than hire multiple kinds of earthmoving equipment for the same project, you simply need to know what attachment will be pertinent to your landscaping needs.
Firstly, the right bucket can do wonders for your project, as the backhoe will be capable of scooping up an array of different materials ranging from gravel to soil. Secondly, a hydraulic breaker can assist with disintegrating hard materials on your landscape, such as boulders, before you can scoop them out of your yard. Thirdly, a pallet fork is a great accessory for transforming the backhoe into lifting equipment that eases the transportation of debris. As long as you know what types of jobs need to be undertaken during the landscaping of your property, you can whittle down the different attachments that you should hire for use with the backhoe.
Hello, my name is Carl and this is my construction and contractor blog. I do not work in the construction business but last year, my wife and I had a lot of work carried out on our summer home which is located on the Gold Coast. Winter storms had damaged the roof and a couple of seabirds had made a nest in there. The place was a real mess but thankfully the contractors did a great job of repairing the roof and fixing up the damage to the loft space. I learn a lot during the repairs so I decided to start a new blog. Enjoy!
