Articulated BackhoesArticulated Backhoes are used for excavating and are used for general purposes. Backhoes are still used in many places for digging. A backhoe is constructed with two arms with a bucket at one end. The general method of use is to attach this bucket to the back or front of a tractor. The term "backhoe" still applies to buckets attached to the front end of tractors.The main specifications of a backhoe to be considered would include pilot-operated joystick controls, extendible stick and special attention paid to brakes, steering, cabin, axles, electrical systems, etc. Besides these, there is the boom, which is the name of the arm nearest to the tractor, and the dipper, which is the part of the vehicle carrying the backhoe. The arm is attached to the tractor and is allowed to be swung to each side to a certain extent.

Holopainen in 1947, and was patented by the Wain-Roy company. Vaino J. Holopainen was even known as Mr. Backhoe!
