Buy used excavator

Excavators are indispensable on construction sites. Excavators are driven on tracks or wheels. Apart from earthmoving, excavators are also used for demolition work.

  • Tracked excavators
    Tracked excavators are driven on tracks. This type of excavator is used on difficult, rough and unpaved terrain.
  • Wheel excavators
    Wheel excavators are wheeled machines. Wheeled excavators are faster than crawler excavators. 
  • Backhoe loaders
    Backhoe loaders are also known as backhoe loaders. Backhoe loaders have a front loader (also called a boom) and an excavator arm for digging. Backhoe loaders are often used to install pipes and cables or to scoop out clods, tree trunks and roots. 
  • Trenchers
    Trenchers are also called chain excavators. They can be used to dig trenches in difficult-to-excavate ground. For example, in loamy and clay soils or where there are many stones and boulders. 

Many applications

Excavators are used in many industries such as:

  • Mining
    Raw materials, minerals and mining. Excavators often play a role in open pit mining that takes place on the surface. 
  • Road, rail and waterway construction (GWW)
    Excavators are used to move soil before roads can be built. 
  • Forestry
    In forestry, excavators are often used to dig out stumps and tree trunks.
  • Agriculture

Heavy excavators are mainly used in mining and road construction while smaller excavators are used by gardeners.
