    Default Backhoe digging force

    I am comparing a BX22TLB and a B7500 with a backhoe. Can someone explain to me digging force. The BX22 has 1936 lbs using a bucket cylinder compared to 2950 lbs for the B7500. The BX22 has 1137lbs using the Crown Cylinder compared to 1740 lbs for the B7500. Thanks.

    the bx22 bucket cylinder will generate 1936#s force at the bucket while curling it. and the arm that the bucket is attached to will generate 1137#s of force at the bucket while being moved in and out.

    I want the backhoe to mainly dig out tree roots so I can remove the stumps . Mostly cedars. Will this force be sufficient for what I want to do, Thanks

    I have a bx22 and have dug out tree stumps with it. It takes some time to dig out roots and then pull out the stump. It gets the job done, depending on the size it will not just scoop it out of the ground. but sure beats digging by hand. If you have a lot to do you may want to have a bigger machine do it to save some time. or you can pick away at them and get backhoe seat time. this is not like a big excavator that pops them out like pulling teeth.

    John,

    While they will both work the bigger the hoe the faster job will get done. What I have found is the BH can move the machine around easily so the larger the machine the more force you will have. The important thing about the curling or bucket force is you can leverage those LBS without dragging the tractor around.

    Also you might want to try an old trick - carefully though. That is to dig around the base of the tree (before felling it) cutting some of the roots on one side then pushing it over. The tree can put a lot more force on the roots than the hoe and it's faster - but be careful.

    Also depending on the soil - rocks and such as they make stump removal here in the Granite state interesting and a challenge sometimes.

    Carl
