John Deere BH9 Backhoe

Double tap to zoom



John Deere backhoes are ideal for light-duty ag or utility work.

  • Swing speed control
  • 180-deg. swing range maximize maneuverability in confined areas. Low-profile console enhances visibility.
  • Cushioned cylinders smooth operation and limit shock loads. Two-lever boom/swing and dipperstick/bucket control allows precise attachment control.
  • Dual-lock arms quickly and easily latch to the machine mainframe. Handy boom- and swing-lock levers enable secure transport.
  • Heavy-duty buckets feature an easy cleanout design and a trio of linkage options that help increase curl, reach, and breakout force.
  • Standard tilt-away seat and convenient grab handle ease cab entry and exit. Height and fore-and-aft seat adjustment helps boost operator comfort.
  • Like all John Deere attachments, these backhoes are optimized to work with Deere SSLs and CTLs.
  • They’re also compatible with many competitive models. See your local Deere dealer for details.
