Backhoe attachment boosts breakout force 70 percent

Caterpillar‘s new backhoe attachment for skid steers and multi-terrain loaders comes in two models BH150 and BH160 with or without auxiliary hydraulics. The new boom and stick shape boast a 70 percent increase in breakout force compared to the old model. Both models offer a boom swing of 182 degrees. The interface linkage is the same as the 303C CR mini-excavator which makes it possible to operate the same buckets and other work tools designed for the mini excavators.
