Unlike crawler excavators, which use steel tracks, wheeled excavators rely on air-filled tires, enabling operators to achieve faster speeds, and work both on- and off-road. This machine’s translational capacity is due to a higher center of gravity. The tradeoff, however is that wheel excavators tend to offer less stability or require supports in the form of outriggers. For these reasons, the wheel excavator is generally used for lighter workload applications. They offer greater maneuverability, particularly in tight spaces, yet can still get into and out of even the toughest job sites.
In addition to excavating, wheel excavators are popular because of their ability to more easily handle a variety of tasks, including cutting, grinding, and moving objects. Hitachi wheel excavators, for example, can handle earthmoving, material transport, and ground or road construction projects and come with a range of grapples, hooks, hammers, and buckets. Caterpillar wheel excavators have dedicated swing pumps for faster, smoother movement and are available with various booms/sticks, tires, undercarriages, and counterweights. Other leading manufacturers offering excavators for sale include Atlas, Doosan, Gradall, Hyundai, Komatsu, Liebherr, Mecalac, and Volvo.
