The new BL60B and BL70B backhoe loaders offer improved performance, usability and a modern appearance. With an average operating weight that ranges from 17,500 to 19,500 lbs., and gross power of 83hp to 98hp, the loaders were designed and built with power, strength, long life and cost saving efficiency in mind. The one-piece chassis, loader arm and excavator boom are all made from high quality steel and robotically welded, giving precise, constant weld runs for structural integrity. The loader arm has a box-welded design and is reinforced with a cross tube. The larger excavator boom has a narrow, tall arch design that is inherently strong, and uses a closed box-welded approach with fewer components and welds, for durability and performance. The boom allows excellent visibility into the trench, as well as enabling closer proximity to the truck for loading. The cast iron kingpost offers flexibility of movement and swing.
