In the UK machinery market, JCB dominate as far as used Backhoes for sale are concerned. The company makes 50% of all backhoe loaders worldwide, but that percentage is even higher in its home market.
No site manager ever got the sack for buying a JCB backhoe, but other manufacturers are worth considering – try the Case range, for example, and there are always some older New Holland examples on the market.
The backhoe loader is suitable for many applications including construction, small demolitions, light transportation of building materials, powering building equipment, digging holes/excavation, landscaping, breaking asphalt, and paving roads.
