Kikki's Workshop Q&A: Let's ask Kikki ! Kikki's Workshop
What is a backhoe and what do you use it for ?
Tell me about different buckets.
Are there different kinds of buckets for micro shovels ?
Buckets for hydraulic excavator can be roughly categorized into two types; a backhoe that digs forwards and a loading shovel that scoops outwards. Even among backhoes, several different kinds exist. Some are built stronger and suitable for working with rocks, some have wider buckets, and some come with no teeth, etc.

The width of a bucket of micro shovel (PC01) is usually 25 cm, but some buckets come in 15 cm or 30 cm. Also some micro shovels have a ripper that shovels the ground.
