Dragline Dragline excavators are bigger in size and mainly used for big-scale construction practices including n-surface mining and other civil engineering tasks. These excavators are available in two different types; on-site and standard mobile draglines. Due to their huge size these excavators are often transported to the site in unassembled parts to be assembled onsite. On-site draglines are massive and built onsite and used for canal dredging. These draglines are also quite heavy which is the reason they cannot be transported in one piece as they may cause damage to the roads.
Suction Excavators Apart from bucket excavators some excavators play the role of a vacuum by sucking out debris and other dirt materials from the ground. The excavation that takes place using a suction excavator requires the use of water in the soil. The water makes the soil loose making it easier for the suction pipe to suck the debris. Suction excavators are used when there is a need to extract soil from the ground for experimental purposes. Long Reach Excavators Long reach excavators have a long arm and boom sections. These types of excavators are usually used in demolition tasks. These machines are strong and can easily break walls and solid structures with power. Their long arms allow the handlers to stay at a safe distance from the demolition debris yet perform the task successfully in less time.
Excavator rental services Excavators can be seen digging up earth rocks and even concrete rubble in any construction site today which can be on absolutely virgin land where no construction work had taken place earlier or it could be a reconstruction project. The project manager builder or contractor in charge of the site decides whether to get equipment like excavators for rent or purchase them outright. It is entirely up to the project in-charge to make the decision about going for outright purchase or opt for rental services to optimize cost. There are construction companies that are structured in a way where they operate with huge in-house inventory of heavy duty equipment while many others like to operate with very little in-house inventory and avoid such capital expenditure.
Project managers going for excavators on rental basis should check rates that are offered by different equipment leasing firms. Optimizing the cost of hiring the equipment means the hirer must ensure that paying of compensation for causing damage to the equipment is avoided. A certain degree of wear and tear is considered normal over time but the equipment leasing company have better knowledge of how much wear and tear can happen after normal operations. An excavator is designed to carry out really heavy work and most leasing companies closely monitor the wear and tear of their machines. Therefore the project manager hiring the equipment should adhere to the best practices of usage in order to optimize the rental deal.
