For a wide-range of industries, heavy duty hauling equipment are becoming a must-have tool. There are many different types of heavy duty hauling equipment used for many construction, drilling and building purposes. A few of most usual types of equipment used in building sites consist of cranes, excavators, concrete mixer, forklifts, backhoes, bulldozers and so on. To move building supplies or big amount of soil, most of these heavy duty hauling equipment are made use of. Cranes are frequently used for demolishing gigantic structures and buildings. They are also used to transport supplies for construction buildings.
Here are a few heavy duty hauling equipment that could be useful to you:
Bulldozers are mostly used to transport soil over a space and drag down trees or break huge stones. They are extremely powerful, hence they are used to loosen and shift dirt and smash hard matter. Though bulldozers are commonly referred to the entire vehicle, the term bulldozer actually refers to the front mounted dozer plate, which is attached to a separate tractor or heavy duty vehicle. They are also used to loosen hard soil and can be operated on tough terrain as well. Bulldozers are used to create pilot roads, and can be wheel-based or track-based. Track-type dozers are best for muddy or sandy terrains as the tracks distribute the weight over a larger area, reducing the risk of sinking.
Equipped with a digging bucket attached to the end of an extendable arm is an excavator. Excavators are used to dig holes, demolish buildings, and lift and load heavy supplies among other tasks. They are the most versatile heavy duty hauling equipment, which come with a sizeable articulated arm with digging bucket on the end, and controlled via a pivoted mounted cab. This equipment helps workers in digging trenches, landscaping, forestry works, driving piles, demolishing buildings, dredging rivers and general lifting duties.
The ability to dig into very hard material and lift large objects, such as boulders, are the greatest strengths of shovels. They are used for digging and loading rocks and soil for mineral extraction. Shovels can be hydraulic-powered or electric-powered. Hydraulic shovels have a simpler power system that require fewer components, while electric shovels use a revolving deck with a power plant.
Loaders are generally used to load loose materials, such as sand, dirt or gravel, and take them to another machine, such as a conveyor belt or dump truck. These destination machines are often at a higher elevation than the location of the materials. Similar to bulldozers, loaders can be track-based or wheel-based, and the selection depends on the terrain to be worked on. Loaders can also be used to transport other machinery.
Then there are heavy duty hauling trucks as well, which are used to transport a fleet of equipment (for general, military, or service construction) from one location to another.
