When starting any earthmoving project, it’s crucial that you equip yourself with the right tools. The type of heavy excavator you choose can make a big difference to the efficiency, safety, and success of your project. But how do you decide which excavator is right for you?
The excavator you choose really depends on the work you’re doing. Are you undertaking a large-scale construction task or a smaller landscaping job? The project’s demands, like the depth of digging, load capacity and the terrain’s condition, will determine the type of excavator you need. In addition, you’ll also need to take into account the excavator’s fuel efficiency, maintenance costs, and ease of operation. All these factors can heavily influence the project’s total cost and timeframe.
Choosing the right excavator for your project
A common question we get at Earthmoving Equipment Australia is about the differences between mini, medium, and heavy excavators. It’s not just about size, though, because each category has its unique strengths.
Mini excavators, typically below 7 tonnes, are perfect for smaller projects like residential landscaping or plumbing. They’re compact, easy to manoeuvre, and can operate in tight spaces.
Medium excavators, ranging between 7 and 20 tonnes, are the workhorses of the construction industry. They are versatile machines, capable of handling various tasks from digging to demolition.
On the other hand, heavy excavators between 21 and 50 tonnes are the giants of earthmoving. These machines are built for large-scale mining, road construction, and commercial projects. They can handle heavy lifting and deep excavation tasks with ease.
However, their size requires a larger working area and skilled operators to handle them safely.
