Loader Backhoes Excel at Digging, Loading and Many More Jobs

Multi-purpose Bobcat® B-Series loader backhoes provide the performance and operating features you need to work productively and efficiently where conventional tractor-loader-backhoes can't.

Powered by liquid-cooled, diesel engines, each of the three models is designed to get the job done quickly and easily. Standard features include intuitive controls, an adjustable operator's seat that swivels 180-degrees for comfortable operation when digging or loading and the roomiest cab in their class. Rugged components and improved cushioning for hydraulic cylinders enhance operation.

For improved productivity, the two-wheel drive, front-wheel steer B100 is outfitted with rear flotation tires, while the B250 and B300 feature four-wheel drive and all-wheel steering. The side shift backhoe on the B250 also enables you to dig trenches parallel to adjacent obstacles.

But these versatile machines do more than dig and load dirt. Standard auxiliary hydraulics allow you to equip them with a variety of Bobcat attachments. Depending on model, you can mount an angle broom, landscape rake or soil conditioner on the loader arms and an auger, breaker, grapple or packer wheel on the backhoe. The standard X-Change™ and Bob-Tach™ mounting systems make changing attachments a snap.
