Backhoes are one of the most common types of construction equipment. Backhoe loaders can dig, scrape, load material, lift and with specialized attachments, perform any required task. Only trained and authorized persons should operate a backhoe. Personal protective equipment should be worn when operating the backhoe. The experience of a backhoe operator and their attention to safety are important. This program covers the maintenance and operation of a backhoe with emphasis on safety, and the general safe work practices that must be followed by any backhoe operator. (Producer: Digital 2000)
