The Backhoe Loader is a vehicle in Dead Rising 3.

It can carry Nick and one other passenger, so it is not an optimal vehicle for ferrying survivors. Although very slow, it is extremely durable and has incredible stopping power in comparison to some of the other regular vehicles.


  • Nick can press Template:Xbutton while driving the backhoe to raise/lower the loader. This can be used to crush zombies when lowered onto the ground.
  • Pressing Ybutton will swing the backhoe, taking care of any zombies at the back of the vehicle. It can be combined with an Ambulance to create the Shockdozer.
