In recent years small compact tractors from manufacturers such as Kubota have become very popular with private homeowners. Subcompact tractors the size between a compact tractor and lawn tractor are also often sold in backhoe loader setup sometimes with a belly-mounted mower also included. These tractors offer private homeowners the ability to perform minor excavation projects.
Sometimes a backhoe bucket is reversed to work in a power shovel configuration. This is generally when loading from a large stockpile for picking up or filling material next to walls to increase the reach of the machine or working around obstacles such as pipes.2
With the advent of hydraulic powered attachments such as a tiltrotator breaker a grapple or an auger the backhoe is frequently used in many applications other than excavation and with the tiltrotator attachment serves as an effective tool carrier. Many backhoes feature quick coupler (quick-attach) mounting systems for simplified attachment mounting dramatically increasing the machines utilization on the job site. Backhoes are usually employed together with loaders and bulldozers. Excavators that use a backhoe are sometimes called "trackhoes" by people who do not realize the name is due to the action of the bucket not its location on a backhoe loader.
