Earthmover Rental

Earthmoving Equipment Guide

An earthmover is a type of heavy equipment vehicle made to dig, push, or transport topsoil, rocks, muck, sand, and other kinds of earthen materials. Different machines are used to do different jobs. Finding the right machine for your project will result in a higher profit margin for your company because site efficiency will improve and production will increase. Equipmentrentalpros.com brings you the information needed to choose the best earthmoving equipment for your project at an affordable rate.

Types of Earthmoving Equipment

When choosing the type of earthmoving equipment you need, think about what you plan to do with the machine. Do you need to break ground, transport large amounts of earth, dig a trench, or place rocks in a landscape with precision? Do you need to move soil across a wide expanse of land?

Find the correct type of equipment for your next project:

Bulldozers

A bulldozer is a large tractor used to push vast amount of materials. The bulldozer has tracks instead of wheels for extra traction on job sites. On the back of the dozer is a ripper. The ripper can tear through hard surfaces such as rocky ground, asphalt, and concrete. The front of the bulldozer has a wide blade used to push earth.

Backhoes

A backhoe is a tractor which has an arm and digging bucket on one end. At the other end of the tractor is sometimes a larger loading bucket—then the machine is called a backhoe loader. Backhoes are used to break through the ground and scoop up the dirt. Backhoes are used on construction sites, road work projects, and farms for excavation.

Wheel and Track Loaders

A large tractor on heavy duty wheels with an attached loading bucket is called a wheel loader. Alternatively, the same machine with tracks instead of wheels is a track loader. Wheel and track loaders can move very large amounts of sand, rock, soil, and even snow incredibly quickly. They can also load materials from the ground onto a conveyor, dump truck, or other receptacle. These loaders are useful in any situation where excavated materials need to be relocated.

Excavators

An excavator’s main purpose is to dig. The housing of the machine sits on tracks and has an arm with a large bucket or claw at the end. Excavators are used to quickly dig foundations or large trenches in the ground. There are also mini versions of the excavator for smaller jobs such as digging ponds or streams.

Tractors

While most earthmoving machines are built onto a tractor housing, a standard tractor is simply a heavy bodied machine on large wheels used for pulling or pushing attachments in farming or on construction sites.

Skidsteers

A skidsteer is used in many industries. This machine has a small body, the ability to move quickly in tight spaces, and enough rugged power for digging, scraping, and loading. The skidsteer is a wheeled or tracked machine with a cab and two arms that accept various attachments. It is commonly used to move small to medium material loads, hollow out narrow trenches, and dig post holes. It is also useful for smaller excavation projects.

Trenchers

The purpose of a trencher is to remove a deep, narrow section of earth. Trenchers come in a wide array of sizes, from large machines capable of digging very large ditches, to units that can dig a trench narrow enough for cable installation. The machines have a wheel or chain which cuts through the earth while pushing materials out and away from the excavated area.

There are many companies that produce earthmoving equipment. It is not always easy to know which brand of equipment to choose. Long-standing popularity of a particular brand is usually an indicator of a trusted, quality machine. Ranked according to sales numbers, these three equipment manufacturers stand out from the crowd:
