Backhoe Loaders: Paladin Bradco 485 Backhoe

February 2010 Vol. 65 No. 2

The Bradco 485 Backhoe increases utilization of skid-steer loaders and tractors.

At 665 pounds without a bucket, its compact size allows operators to easily move the unit around the job site and provides a maximum digging depth of 8 feet, 5 inches. The full 180-degree dual-cylinder swing rotation provides equal power in both directions. A 10-foot, 7-inch horizontal reach from the swing post efficiently places dirt away from the digging area and minimizes the need to move the machine. The Bradco 485 Backhoe is compatible with bucket sizes from 10 inches up to 24 inches and heaped capacities that range from .92 cubic feet up to 3.1 cubic feet. 800.456.7100,
