Learn more about DR Backhoe

The 10 HP (14.5 ft-lbs gross torque*) DR Towable Backhoe has power to spare for trenching, landscaping, stump removal, heavy lifting and more. Designed especially for the most demanding digging tasks, this machine is self-powered with its own hydraulic system, so there's no fussing with a 3-point hitch or hydraulic connections.

Versatile design allows you to attach the machine to your truck, ATV, UTV, or tractor and tow to virtually any location at up to 45 mph. Plus, use it freestanding for maximum maneuverability, or while attached to your towing vehicle for even better torque. The wide stance stabilizer system provides a solid anchorage to the ground, and the unique foot design allows for easy repositioning. High-performance Briggs & Stratton engine is up to any tough task!

DR Towable Backhoe. Pull-behind pickup truck, atv, utv or garden tractor.
Unmatched Portability
Tows Wherever You Need it

The DR Towable Backhoe hitches to your pickup truck with a common 2" ball hitch. You can also take it off-road with your ATV, UTV, or lawn tractor, allowing you to get to places a farm tractor couldn't go easily or safely. Tires are DOT certified at up to 45 mph.

DR Towable Backhoe. Use it with or without a tow vehicle
Flexible Design
Use it with or without a tow vehicle

The DR Backhoe is designed for digging attached to your tow vehicle or free-standing. Working unhitched, for lighter jobs, gives you maximum maneuverability, and means you don't have to tie up your tow vehicle if it's needed for other purposes. For ripping or lifting, you should leave the tow vehicle attached to provide extra anchorage.

Wide stance stabilizer system on a DR Towable Backhoe
Wide Stance Stabilizer System
Multiple legs provide a safe operating position

Wide stance stabilizer system provides maximum holdback to counter digging force and provide solid platform. Unique foot design enables you to reposition the unit, using the bucket, but resists unintentional "crawl." Front stabilizer legs have 3 positions for modifying working height. Rear stabilizer feet skid backward easily but resist forwardsliding.

Operation is simple and easy to learn

The DR Backhoe's controls are simple and intuitive, allowing you to become a proficient operator with just a little practice. Each lever controls one action: 1) the up-down action of the boom (or "upper arm"); 2) the side-to-side action of the boom; 3) the up-down action of the crowd (or "lower arm"); 4) the curl of the bucket.

Dual filtration system on a DR Towable Backhoe
Dual Filtration System
Clean fluid ensures less maintenance, better performance

Clean hydraulic fluid is essential to any machine powered by hydraulics. With the DR Backhoe, the hydraulic fluid is cleaned twice. First, by the Tank Mounted Strainer (left) and second by the Hydraulic Filter (right).
