An excavator is a construction vehicle used to excavate or move large objects. An Excavator is basically made up of 2 parts: a driving base associated a powerful boom arm with an attachment designed for excavating. The operator sits within a cab connected to the base and controls the arm. The excavator uses a Hydraulic system to generate a Hydraulic force to control the mechanical arm of the machine. It also uses a chain wheel system for it’s movement.
Excavators have a range of uses, and they are frequently sought after machines due to their versatility in a number of professions and projects, which is why they sell fast. Some of their uses include:
- Digging of trenches, holes, foundations
