  • Hydraulic backhoe: Hitachi EX1100-3. Hydraulic cylinders move the bucket, the stick to which it’s attached, and the boom through their range of motion. This large backhoe is used in heavy digging.
  • Hydraulic shovel: 1992 Komatsu PC1500. Used in heavy construction and mining, its bucket moves in the same manner as that of a cable-operated shovel but with far more power.
  • Telescoping boom excavator: Koehring 4470 Teleskoop. The bucket is at the end of a telescoping boom that also rotates, giving this machine a tremendous working range.
