Go-For-Digger Towable Backhoe

The Go-For-Digger is a versatile tool applicable for a wide variety of projects. Whether you need to lay utility lines, dig irrigation ditches, or even clear land for development, we have a solution for you. The innovative design of our pull-behind backhoe allows it to be attached simply to a work truck, utility terrain vehicle, or tractor for ease of transportation.

A primary strength of the Go-For-Digger is its adaptability. It’s able to get into areas that standard backhoes or construction equipment can’t, allowing for professional-quality work without having to maneuver a machine that’s just too big. When utilized freestanding, operators can expect maximum maneuverability and the ability to get into hard-to-reach areas. Or it can be utilized in-tow, allowing for greater leverage.

If you’re looking for a towable backhoe for sale, you’ve come to the right place. Our top-of-the-line backhoe is durably designed, compactly constructed, and reliably manufactured to increase your productivity. Our new Boom Design with longer reach allows easier loading of excess material for disposal. Further, our team can work directly with yours to determine your projects needs and demonstrate how our backhoe can allow you to meet any necessary standards while maintaining productivity.

The Traditional Digger is engineered with a robust hydraulic system, creating a towable backhoe with strong digging force and allowing you to work in even the toughest soil.

High Quality Component Fabrication

 All critical weldments on the Go-For-Digger are precision bored to accommodate 55 Rockwell Hardened bushings. There are a total of 108 of these bushings on each machine. This insures with proper maintenance your Go-For-Digger will last years, even decades!

We can offer both a self-powered hydraulic digger as well as an electric model. It is also adaptable based on the conditions of the job being performed, making our pull behind digger an ideal asset for construction, utility work, trenching, landscaping, and much more.
