Backhoes should be one of the most common forms of used wheeled excavators. There are many characteristics about this kind of excavator. It has a wheeled or track base and a large bucket extended from a boom arm above the ground. This kind of excavator allows the driver to scoop earth towards the machine since the bucket faces toward the operator cab on a backhoe. It can allow drivers to work in small spaces.

While suction excavators resemble a modern dump truck. Operators use a large diameter hose to suck earth and rocks out of the ground using vacuum technology, then transfer it into the truck. If you need to dig around pipes and other underground objects with reduced risk of damage compared to standard backhoes.

Steam shovel is the classic excavator. It still relies on steam energy. Compared with traditional used track excavators, modern excavator uses electric or diesel motor. It makes it possible for users to push dirt away from the machine rather than pulling the earth towards the unit.

There are also dragline excavator and bucket wheel excavator. The dragline excavator has the similar design to the backhoe and include a series of cables and lines to support the pulling motion of the bucket. Bucket wheel excavator feature a large front wheel equipped with built-in shovels and buckets. As the wheel rotates, the buckets scoop up dirt and rocks.
