Eterra E70 Skid Steer Backhoe Attachment

The Eterra E70 Backhoe for skid steers flaunts one of the highest quality designs for a skid steer backhoe attachment on the market. Unlike most backhoe attachment designs, the E70 enables the operator to utilize an optional hydraulic thumb and dig 7 feet with break out power of 14,500 lbs. The E70 series of skid steer backhoes are based on an original Eterra backhoe design from 1998. This backhoe has evolved over the years, resulting in a durable and trustworthy attachment with incredibly dynamic features, offering more reach and more options available to you on the job site. The 7 foot boom gives you 7 feet of reach.

Select Product Options Above

  • Select Standard Digging Bucket (Included with Backhoe Purchase)
  • Select Backhoe Thumb Option
  • Select Solenoid Thumb Control Device (not needed for No Thumb and Fixed Thumb options)
  • Select Additional Optional Buckets, Grapples and Accessories at a 20% Discount
  • Eterra ECS Quick Exchange Coupler Included

Eterra has improved the relief qualities of the cylinder so there is no need for a separate valve. Movement has also been updated to better connect to the ECS quick coupler. The idea for a hydraulic thumb was conceived and developed post-Hurricane Katrina due to a demand for a backhoe with a grapple and a fixed thumb. After gathering extensive customer feedback, Eterra designed a hydraulic thumb to allow for debris and material handling. It also features remote hydraulics for powered attachments and a special quick-change coupler that allows the operator to switch out your buckets or accessories within a few minutes. The Solenoid Controlled Hydraulic Thumb and Remote Hydraulics options includes a remote output port with couplers so you can add additional hydraulic backhoe attachments for skid steer loaders to the ECS backhoe coupler that your bucket or accessory connects to. 

You can expect 14,500 pounds of break-out power and a boom reach of 7’ 6” with the bucket installed on your E70 Skid Steer Backhoe. Please note the 8" bucket is recommended for use with the E40 and E60 series of backhoes. The 8" will work with the E70, but the thumb will be wider than the bucket, making digging difficult. Some customers utilize the 8" bucket in different and creative ways, so the option is still available if you have a use in mind.

Why buy an Eterra E70 Skid Steer Backhoe System? Well, it is the #1 backhoe on the market for a reason. It works great and lasts, as well as being supported by a full parts department. Eterra strives to set the industry standard, demanding excellence out of their entire line of products.
