The style boom of the equipment model has better reach over obstacles and assists in easy and smooth loading of high body trucks. Boom-stick-bucket is this equipment is designed with perfect geometry which aids well for digging. 205-degree hoe bucket rotation gives better heap capacity and superior rimpull delivers excellent dozing performance.
Backhoe loader with dig depths and breakout forces
Backhoe loaders with better dig depths, breakout forces and operating capacities are in demand due to hard terrain in India. The Volvo BL71 is a perfect fit for it. The backhoe provides a 4,3 m dig depth and 59 kN of bucket dig force. The narrow, S-style boom provides excellent visibility and load capacity to simplify digging and loading operations. For safe roading, the boom can be hydraulically locked and there’s a locking. It has optional features like an extendible dipper. And because operators are as diverse as the jobs, the equipment model offers added versatility and comfort with the choice of excavator or backhoe control patterns. It is also equipped with a proven Volvo turbo diesel engine capable of delivering high power and torque at low revs with low fuel consumption. The machine’s Powershuttle gearbox features four fully synchronized gears and electro-hydraulic switching between forward and reverse. Backhoe’s boom has a closed box welded construction with fewer components and fewer welds for superior strength. The kingpost is composed of cast iron to allow flexible movement and swing while maintaining uncompromising strength. The single, center-mounted dump cylinder provides 55 kN of breakout force, so you can handle the load with speed and ease. It also 1 features a 1.0 m3 General Purpose Standard Bucket that gives you the capacity to move more material with every load, for faster cycle times and increased profitability.
