Types Of Machinery Used For Excavation or Earthworks Projects

In a recent article, we looked at some of the amazing earth moving heavy equipment for construction. We mentioned some of them, now we continue for more of these awesome machines.

Types Of Machinery Used For Excavation or Earthworks Projects

Graders – Once the scrapers have dumped their loads of earth into an excavated area, these machines then come to work. Graders work to level out the earth that has recently been dug or displaced. This heavy equipment has a long narrow blade in front used to create a flat surface during grading.

Dumpers – These machines are generally used for carrying bulk material, often on building sites. They are like the scraper, but smaller and easier to maneuver.

Dumper Trucks – These heavy-duty machines are used to transport huge loads in very long distances. Compared to dumpers, these dumper trucks are bigger in size.

Bulldozers – These motorized machines move on tracks and a metal blade attached to the front. These machines are powerful pushers, usually pushing soil, sand, snow, rubble, or rock in construction sites or conversion work.

Clamshell Excavators – This amazing machine is used to moving soft or saturated soil. The machine’s name is taken from its massive arm that has a shovel that opens and closes shut like a clam.

Tractor Shovels – These loaders are like bulldozers, but fitted with buckets at the front instead of a blade. The shovel bucket is hydraulically powered to scoop up loose materials, carry out bulldozing, unearthing, lifting and loading activities.

These are all awesome machines used in any excavation or Perth earthworks projects. These types of machinery for construction get the job done quickly and efficiently.
