Excavators: An Important Part of the Construction Industry

Excavators play a crucial role in the construction industry, particularly in Singapore. These powerful machines are used for digging, clearing, and filling at construction sites. Introduced in the 1900s, excavators have revolutionized construction by reducing the need for large numbers of workers. With advancements in technology, these machines have evolved to meet specific needs and locations.

Types and Sizes of Excavators

Small Excavators: The smallest excavators weigh between 1 to 5 tons. They are ideal for small sites, house construction, and roadworks due to their compact size and reduced noise levels.

Medium Excavators: Medium-sized excavators weigh between 6 to 10 tons. These machines are primarily used for general construction projects and larger site reconstructions.

Large Excavators: Large excavators weigh over 10 tons and are used for extensive excavation projects, such as mining for oil, diamonds, and other industrial materials.

Types of Excavators

Crawler Excavators: Crawler excavators run on a chain wheel system, making them suitable for hilly areas and weak soils due to their low ground pressure and load spreading capabilities.

Wheel Excavators: Wheel excavators are designed for loading and dumping materials. However, their low grip makes them unsuitable for hilly terrain.
