A skid steer backhoe, also called a rear actor or back actor, is a piece of excavating equipment consisting of a skidsteer backhoe digging backhoe bucket on the end of an articulated arm (also called a stick or dipper). Modern skid steer backhoes are powered by hydraulics. They are typically mounted on the back of a tractor or front loader, skid steer backhoes attach to the quick attach system. Then the skid steer backhoe hydraulics are connected.
Similar attachments for skid loaders are still called backhoes even though they are mounted on the front. This is because the name refers to the action of the shovel, not its location on the vehicle: a skid steer backhoe digs by drawing earth backwards, rather than lifting it with a forward motion like a bulldozer.
