Those who are in the industries that makes use of this machinery are able to complete the job much quicker than if they had the digging done manually.

What is a tractor loader backerhoe?

Fitted with a large digging shovel in the front and claw like scoop on the back, the TLB is a small piece of heavy equipment that is a common feature at most building sites as well as in the agricultural industry. This piece of machinery is highly versatile and adaptable; it has many uses and this is what makes the machine so popular. TLB in Nelspruit and TLB in Malelane are incredibly popular as the towns expand and as agriculture continues to play a dominating role.


A brief history of the TLB

The TLB will turn 62 this year. This revolutionary machine that has played such a big role in development was the brain child of Joseph Cyril Bamford, a British business man. He created the modern day TLB, the very same type of TLB in Nelspruit and TLB in Malelane, by converting a farm tractor. He attached a backhoe, the “scooping arm”, onto the back and he attached a “bucket” onto the front.

There are two types of TLB available: one with removable backhoe and bucket and one with permanently attached backhoe and bucket. The TLB which has permanent attachments is fitted with a seat which makes it able to move around in a circle while the other type is fitted with seats that are attached to the actual fittings such as onto the backhoe.

While in South Africa they are known as TLBs, in Britain they are known as JCBs. This is because the company that manufactures them in Britain is called JCB. Around 20 years after the TLB was manufacture it underwent another transformation when it had 4-wheel drive installed in it. This has enabled the machine to go over difficult terrain making it a more versatile option to have.

The many uses of the TLB

From construction to the removal of materials that have been dug out of the earth, the TLB is known for its ability to be adaptable to most needs and thanks to its adaptability it can tackle almost any project and any terrain. Over the years many new features have been added. Various attachments to suit a variety of needs have become available and this has made it the machine of choice as it can do many jobs at once.

TBL hire in Nelspruit are mostly used for construction. With the recent and currently in progress revamp of the R40 heading towards Barberton, the TLB has been especially prominent. TLB has been involved with the preparations of the earth for the widening of the road by digging out the soil to make way for new road. And once the earth was dug away, the TLB was again brought in to remove the excess materials that were left in the way. They have also been used on during the construction of buildings as the town continues to grow and expand.  

The TLB in Malelane truly excels when it is used in agriculture. Helping the farmer to prepare the land as never before, the TLB is a must have on the farm especially for those who have plenty of ground to cover in preparation for the planting season. The work can be done in less than half the time that it would have taken to do the preparations manually. But it is not only for getting the land ready for planting that the TLB is a much loved machine, the TLB is also consistently used to dig holes for poles used in the construction of barns and other farm buildings. Trees can also be transported for planting and the difficult to remove stumps can easily be removed using a TLB.

While the TLB might not have as much power as the other equipment that you have available, it can certainly successfully complete many difficult jobs.

In the construction industry and the plant hiring industry, the acronym for this machine is well known but for people who need a TLB machine and do not know the name of the machine they need, the term TLB is meaningless.

What is a TLB?

TLB stands for tractor loader backhoe. They are a versatile, multipurpose piece of machinery that can be used to dig the earth and load up materials such as rubble and sand. Being lightweight they are easily able to move around on their own and if need be they can move faster than their bigger, bulkier counterparts.

When building roads, construction crews will make use of this machinery throughout the process. With the constant road works in and around Nelspruit the TLB in Nelspruit and the TLB in Malelane have been in popular demand. These machines dig up the ground that needs to be removed in order for the construction to begin and used again to move the soil out of the way so that the other phases of construction can take place.

In the past manual labour using a huge team of people to dig the earth using shovels in the hot sun would be used to clear away unwanted soil. This was time consuming and led to the deaths of many people. There are horror stories of people dying while working on the road construction. Luckily this is no longer a reality. TLB machinery is efficient and safe to use in the construction of roads.
