This report concerns the market for backhoe loaders and is an update on the subject which was last covered in Off-Highway Research’s European Service in April 2013.

Historically, the backhoe loader has been developed from the modification of an agricultural or industrial tractor, to which has been added a front bucket of approximately 0.75 m3 capacity, and a rear hydraulic backhoe with a bucket of around 0.2 m3 capacity. As a result, the backhoe loader was for a long time a favourite tool for small excavation works and one of the most popular machines available on Italian construction sites. The machine owed its success to its versatility and flexibility which ideally suited it to the work of jobbing contractors, often owner operators, who were able to adapt quickly to the specific requirements of each job. However, in spite of the growing emphasis on repair, restoration and maintenance in the construction sector, contractors are now much less dependent on the backhoe loader as their basic tool, and in recent years they have moved heavily towards the use of other compact machines.

The products covered in this report include rigid, articulated and all-wheel-steer types of purpose-built backhoe loaders ranging from 40 to 120 horsepower. Small, under 40 horsepower, machines are excluded, as are wheeled loaders, skid-steer loaders and agricultural and industrial tractors to which a backhoe attachment has been fitted.

The findings are based on Off-Highway Research’s International Database Service, and on information collected during an extensive interview programme in Italy undertaken in November 2016, which included all leading manufacturers, importers and distributors.
