Break ground, not your back!

Easily access those tight work spaces and get down to some digging. Bush Hog®’s new line of XD series backhoes are designed for tractors
ranging from 18 to 100 horsepower along with skid steers and mini skid steers depending on the model. Perfect for digging footers, trenches and all general landscaping and construction needs, the XD series backhoes deliver value and strong performance to your operation.

With a digging depth of 6 feet and an 8-foot reach, the XD65 gets down and dirty, breaking the frostline and finishing the job quickly.
