Backhoe

Backhoe

Excavator Style Backhoe
Excavator Style Backhoe - Whether close-up truck loading or digging over obstacles, the iconic excavator style boom tackles the toughest jobs with ease. Combine this versatility with powerful breakout forces, controllability, a flow-sharing hydraulic system and the 422F2 is capable of high levels of productivity with minimum effort. The boom is a narrow design, ensuring maximum visibility to the work tool and ground.
Extendible Stick
Extendible Stick - The 422F2 is available with an extendible stick that increases dig depth and reach capability increasing the machines versatility and utilization, reducing the amount of machine repositioning and therefore reducing site damage. A sliding inner section design helps to ensure the wear pads remain as dirt free as possible, extending adjustment and replacement intervals. Auxiliary lines, for operating hydraulic work tools, have been routed so that they are protected from damage when working in the narrowest of trenches.
Side Shift Frame - The F2 Series Side Shift Frame has exterior locking clamps, with no disassembly needed when servicing. The frame is a solid design with E-Coat protection, this prevents material build up in the frame and reduces the risk of rust, increasing the life of the frame.
Cat Cushion Swing - The 422F2 is equipped with Cat Cushion Swing, which enables very fast trenching by damping the boom oscillation during trenching cycles.
Powered Side Shift (optional) - Provides a hydraulic service to allow the operator to easily position the backhoe across the full width of the Side Shift Frame. Ideal for use in areas with minimal space and utility applications such as gas, electrical, and telecoms.
