Backhoe Hydraulic Hose, Fitting & Cylinder Repair in Houston
Also referred to as a back actor, rear actor, or loader backhoe, the backhoe is one of the most versatile machines in the construction industry. It gets its name from the fact that it draws the earth backward as opposed to the forward motion typical of other equipment such as bulldozers or steam shovels.
Hydraulic Services for Backhoe
The machine has three major parts: the boom, stick, and bucket. In most cases, the boom bends upwards, making it easy to dig or scoop up hard, compact material, or lift heavy loads. The arrangement of these three parts is similar to that of a human arm that is made up of the hand, forearm, and upper arm.
Just like the muscles in a human arm, the cylinders in a backhoe are the power behind the other segments of the machine. The cylinder pistons in a backhoe are controlled by different spool valves. Another hydraulic system in the backhoe is the swing casting, which connects the tractor to the boom arm, making it possible for an operator to move the backhoe’s arm from one side to another.
