Excavator Rental, Excavation Equipment Rentals, Mini Excavators For Rent
Trackhoe Rentals | Digger Attachments and Demolition Hammers | Hydraulic Excavating Machines
Excavator's have the capacity to move earth and to relocate materials on a large scale, making it an indispensible asset to the construction site and one of the most common types of construction equipment rentals used in the heavy equipment industry.
Excavators combined with available hydraulic attachments are used for a wide variety of construction applications including digging, earth moving, demolition, material handling, brush cutting, forestry work, landscaping, and heavy craning. Most excavators are equipped with a monoboom, which only moves up and down. The second type of boom is the knuckle boom excavator, which moves left and right as well as up and down.
Excavators- Crawlers and Wheeled Excavators
Wheeled excavators offer high travel speed coupled with a smooth ride, making them very efficient. Faster cycle times are facilitated by load sensing hydraulics working in conjunction with a high torque swing motor. Wheeled excavators are more environmentally friendly, with generally lower external levels of sound. Their operating weight allows them to be used on roadways, further adding to their versatility.
Crawler excavators can be rented for your biggest general construction jobs, including quarrying, mining, scrap handling and road building. Operators find a comfortable seat in the cab with unrestricted visibility allows confident and efficient accomplishment of tasks like precision grading. Interchangeable front attachments are also available.
Mini Excavator Rentals & Compact Excavators
Compact excavators are available for rent in both tracked and wheeled versions. Normally equipped with a standard backfill blade, these excavators feature an independent boom swing which can rotate in a 360 degree radius. The compact excavators work group and blade are activated by hydraulic fluid acting upon hydraulic cylinders.
Mini excavators can be used in tight spots where a larger excavator may not have practical access. Having a smaller footprint in combination with significantly smaller swing radius makes a compact excavator well suited for working in a confined area. Some compact excavators are small enough to fit through a residential gate. Some are designed with rubber treads to minimize damage to lawns.
Functions of the compact excavator include digging, tracking, and grading, leveling, trenching, and basic dozer functions. Breaking up rock, digging trenches for pipe, digging holes for pools or septic tanks, and landscaping are all jobs these machines are designed to handle.
Excavators and Demolition Applications
Heavy excavators are generally used for mass Earth moving, demolition and scrap management jobs. A variety of attachments are available to expedite demolition applications. An extended arm, also called a long reach excavator, can be an invaluable tool for a contractor to rent for specific applications where the utility of the long arm can be utilized to either more quickly expedite a job, or tackle one which otherwise could not be attempted.
Mining Excavators and Aggregate Excavation Applications
Heavy duty excavators are rented for use in surface mining and open pit mining operations. Bucket wheel excavators and other large-scale mining equipment such as bucket chain excavators are among the largest vehicles ever constructed.
Hydraulic Attachments and Excavator Tools
Excavators can be equipped with a variety of hydraulic attachments and tools which allow the rental equipment to perform multiple construction applications. This makes them an extremely versatile machine and is why they are always seen at work in the construction, mining and aggregate industries.
Frequently rented attachments include different sized buckets, concrete/stone breakers and processors, augers, compaction wheels and grapples.
Many excavators feature a quick coupler, which allows for simplified attachment mounting, increasing the utilization of the excavator on the site.
- Tilt buckets which are used for digging large holes or scooping up rocks and dirt to be moved out of the way.
Motor graders possess a long blade used to flatten surfaces. Typical models of motor graders have three axles, with the engine and cab situated above the rear axles at one end of the vehicle and a third axle at the front end of the vehicle, with the blade in between. Some motor graders have two blades. Often the motor grader machine is referred to simply as the "blade". They can be used to produce an inclined surface, to give camber to roads.
