Excavators are a must on job sites where there is a need for lifting heavy loads of soil. An excavator is a popular earthmoving vehicle featuring movable tracks, rotating cab, arm and bucket. These parts offer excellent mobility and digging power that allows excavators to perform numerous functions, from breaking holes to digging trenches, excavating mines and lifting waste materials.
Common Uses of Excavators
Excavators are used for various industrial and contractor needs such as building construction, road construction, demolitions and mining.
These forms of large excavation equipment also come in different types, including smaller machines that handle drilling and digging functions up to large excavators that have several tools meant for heavier duty projects. When our team decides on the excavator to use for a particular job, we consider the speed and the size as well as the specific working conditions like the types of soil and the amount of available space.
The most frequently used types of excavators include:
- Skid steer excavators
