Backhoe loaders have been the superstar of construction equipment as well as the material handling industry since quite a long time. Be it building sites, roadwork areas or places where earthmoving is required, backhoe loaders can be spotted everywhere. Most backhoe loaders feature quick-attach mounting systems and auxiliary hydraulic circuits for simplified attachment mounting, increasing the machine's utilisation on the job site. After four years of research and over 20,000 hours of machine testing under the harshest conditions, Mahindra has presented Mahindra EarthMaster backhoe loader, a revolutionary new machine that will break all standards in the backhoe loader category. Let's take a look at what it takes to be the best backhoe loader in India. Powerful mechanics: A powerful diesel engine at the heart and amazing hydraulics define the best of backhoe loaders in India. The diesel engine creates power while the hydraulics amplifies it.
Highly fuel efficient: Further, for a backhoe loader to be the best-in-class, fuel efficiency is the primary requirement. Here, Mahindra EarthMaster deserves a mention. It offers best-in-class fuel efficiency (4.5* litre per hour) with the proven Mahindra DITEC engine that is a compact four-cylinder 3,532 cc engine, turbocharged intercooled engine that is BS III emission compliant which implies it saves 10 per cent more.
Low maintenance cost: When identifying the best backhoe loader, it is also important to consider the maintenance cost. With better technology and design enhancements, Mahindra has been able to lower the lubricant refilling requirements with extended service intervals therefore reducing the overall maintenance costs.
Superior productivity and performance: Mahindra EarthMaster comes with Banana Boom with 7 per cent more reach, rugged and reputed gear pump and has maximum dig depth and loader dump height.
Intelligence matters: Apart from strong mechanics, the machine's intelligence should also be considered. So, if a backhoe loader comes with remote monitoring features that allows you to get daily work report, fuel level notice and maintenance warning through SMS, then nothing like it.
Effortless operations with joystick: Since effortless and fast operations is the need of the hour, this feature also assumes a lot of importance. A joystick is usually used to manoeuvre this complex system to make heavy duty work seem much easier and effortless than it actually is. A joystick makes for accurate and smooth power control.
Highly communicative: Today, the highly advanced backhoe loaders come with a radio with a two-way speaker system that facilitates communication with the operator and through him, with people on site. It becomes effective and useful in congested sites and in large sites without mobile network.
Highly convenient and comfortable:
The design team at Mahindra looked at the current scenario and included some dramatic leaps in technology on the EarthMaster backhoe loader specially for the Indian usage pattern.
Mahindra believes that the most important part of the machine is the person operating it. That is why a tremendous amount of work has been put in place to make his experience the most comfortable for his long hours of work. Ergonomic layout and seating that makes every control smooth and easy to reach, advanced mechanical control levers, 21st century styling with plush car like interiors and personal storage space and a tool box with easy access.
