Whether used in roadway or large commercial construction projects, the excavator is one of the most important pieces of equipment on a construction site, as well as in mining, quarrying, shipping, and other applications. On construction sites, excavators are used primarily to dig and move earth. But when paired with various attachments, they can also handle such tasks as crushing, lifting, demolishing, trenching, loading, rechanneling, and shaping.
Crawler excavators, sometimes referred to as track excavators or crawling diggers, represent the majority of hydraulic excavators on the market today. They feature a chassis equipped with a crawler transmission and tracks, upon which is mounted a turret capable of rotating 360 degrees. The chassis is an X-shaped structure that receives the displacement materials and supports the turret. The operator’s cabin, engine, and the hydraulic systems of a crawler excavator generally reside on top of the turret.
These machines are categorized as mini, compact, or standard-sized, with operating weights ranging up to 100,000 pounds and beyond. Midsize crawler excavators are smaller than standard machines, but more powerful than the compact variety. Crawler excavators offer superior traction and better maneuverability for difficult terrain. They are also suitable for clearing work, such as collecting trees, bushes, weeds, and more. A crawler excavator has the same forward and backward speed. Speeds vary depending on the size of the machine, often up to about 3.5 mph.
The main selection criteria for a hydraulic excavator are its operating size and weight, bucket capacity, bucket loading and dumping height, maximum digging depth, and penetration and pulling force.
