A method of optimization in the design of earth moving equipment is presented in this paper, using the example of a backhoe digging equipment. Its working capacity has been described with the use of geometric concepts deriving from the mechanics of a discrete set of points. Expressions depicting the magnitude and shape of a hodograph of potential digging forces have been taken as the objective function. A computer implementation of the presented method has also been developed in form of STAKOP system of calculations supporting equipment design.
