One of the most popular forms of construction equipment today, the excavator can be used in a variety of settings. For example, the versatility of the vehicle means that they are useful in landscaping and demolition tasks to name but a few.
The excavator has a standard format. This consists of an enclosed cab, in which the operator is seated. This can generally move 360 degrees, allowing for the utmost visibility. An additional part of the excavator is the boom, which is the arm which moves the attachment, and it is this attachment which completes the actual work. The standard attachment for excavators would be the bucket. This is a scooped attachment enabling the excavator to dig in dirt or gravel. Mini excavators refer to the more compact excavators, which are popular for a range of tasks, including utility work, to demolition work and landscaping.
