XD Series Backhoe

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.

The Bush Hog® digs even deeper with the Extendable XD95EL model. Capable of hydraulically extending an extra 24” to dig 11’ 4” deep, the extendable dipper stick gives you the extra reach when you need it. When contracted, the bucket and dipper stick curl up tight to the boom for easy travel and compact storage.
