Excavators are heavy construction equipment consisting of a boom, dipper (or stick), bucket and cab on a rotating platform known as the “house”. The house sits atop an undercarriage with tracks or wheels. They are a natural progression from the steam shovels and often mistakenly called power shovels. Excavators are also called diggers, JCBs (a proprietary name, in an example of a generic trademark), mechanical shovels, or 360-degree excavators (sometimes abbreviated simply to 360). Tracked excavators are sometimes called “trackhoes” by analogy to the backhoe. In the UK, wheeled excavators are sometimes known as “rubber ducks.”
The radius lift path delivers the reach and visibility you need for dumping over a wall, backfilling or loading flatbed trucks, making it a popular choice for excavating and earth-moving work.
Heavy Duty Dump Trucks
A dump truck is a truck used for transporting loose material (such as sand, gravel, or demolition waste) for construction.
Backhoe Loaders provide superior digging, trenching, back-filling and material handling capability and can be used for many applications , including but not limited to:
- General Construction
- Demolitions and Excavations
- Breaking Asphalt and Paving
Tire Compactor is an eight-wheeled machine designed for rolling hot-mix-asphalt surface treatments, such as chip-and-seal, as well as soil-stabilization applications.
