What is the different between PTO and tractor mounted backhoes?

Customers that are on the market for a new backhoe machine for their own personal use will require quality machines that can stand up to wear and tear continue to operate flawlessly throughout the years. We understand just how difficult it can be to find quality power equipment, and that is why WoodMaxx has set out to make this process as easy as possible by offering some of the leading machines that were built with quality and durability in mind. Here is a look at the differences between our PTO backhoes and tractor mounted backhoes as well as their advantages and disadvantages.

PTO units will utilize the energy that is created directly from the engine of the tractor. These power take off units act as an additional tool that require a tractor or skip loader to operate. The tractor mounted alternatives will utilize an external power source in order to operate the bucket.

With each of our backhoes, we suggest 18 to 35 horsepower in order to effectively power the machines. These backhoes come in 6, 7, and 8 and their maximum digging depth is 7, 8, and 9 respectively. Our backhoes can also be quickly transported, deployed, and then operated by a single individual, allowing you to carry out your next project as quickly as possible. The intuitive controls require very little in the way of training and this means more time getting the job done.

Here at WoodMaxx Power Equipment, we believe that every one of our customers deserve to make their next purchase with confidence. This is why we offer a standard two year warranty that is just as robust as the equipment that we sell. We are now also offering extended three year warranties as well as a full line of affordable replacement parts that will keep your backhoe running smoothly for years on end.
