Backhoe Loaders for Sale (79)

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.

A Brief History – the Backhoe Loader

JCB claim to have invented the backhoe loader with a prototype back in 1953 – it looked a lot like a tractor with some attachments bolted on – and that’s more or less what it was.

JCB Mk1 Backhoe Prototype 1953
World’s First Backhoe Loader?

J I Case claim to have the first Backhoe loader to market as early as 1957, but in the UK we associate JCB to backhoe loaders in the same way as ‘Hoover’ is to vacuum cleaners.

Over the years there have been many advances in technology, but a modern day backhoe looks very similar to the first prototype nearly 70 years ago.
