Advancements In Heavy Equipment

from: Lucy Bartlett

There is a rapid advancement in the field of heavy equipment

technology. Unlike the earlier days now, using global

positioning satellite technology, heavy equipment placed

anywhere in the world can be checked or diagnosed. Finding the

right new equipment suitable is also getting to be a big

challenge. With lot of options and features to consider, it will

be an overwhelming chore.

Among the heavy equipment, backhoe-loaders are used in small

demolitions, breaking asphalt, construction, digging

holes/excavating, light transportation of building materials,

powering building equipment, and paving roads. To smash concrete

and rock, tools such as breakers can be used instead of the

backhoe bucket. To empty its load more quickly and efficiently,

some loader buckets have a retractable bottom. Grading and

scratching off sand is executed with retractable-bottom loader

buckets. The front assembly may be permanently mounted or have a

removable attachment. Often other devices and tools replace the

bucket. In order to mount different attachments to the loader,

the backhoe loader must be equipped with a tool coupler. Find

Bulldozers are heavy equipment but they are also large and

tracked engineering vehicles. With the mobility and ground hold

given by the tracks they can move through very rough terrain.

Swamp tracks in bulldozers are merely extra wide tracks. The

three distinct assemblies of compact hydraulic excavators are

workgroup, undercarriage and house. The boom, arm or dipper and

attachments such as bucket and breaker are parts of the

workgroup of a compact hydraulic excavator. They are connected

to the front of the house structure of the excavator via a swing

frame that allows the workgroup to be hydraulically pivoted

right or left to achieve offset digging for trenching.

Harvesters today do practically all of the commercial felling in

Sweden and Finland and they were developed in these countries.

Harvesters work best in less difficult terrain while clear

cutting areas of forest. Small and very agile harvesters are

used in the Nordic countries for thinning operations. An iron or

a cylinder placed between two metal rods so that it is able to

freely slide down and up are included in the pile drivers. A

pulley system is used to raise the cylinder which may involve

the use of manual labor, steam or hydraulics. Small explosions

in the chamber are used in modern pile drivers to raise the


A piece of heavy equipment used for earthmoving in civil

engineering, is a wheel tractor-scraper. A vertically moveable

hopper in the rear part with a sharp horizontal front edge does

the scraping. Raising and lowering of the hopper is done

hydraulically. The front edge cuts into the soil like a

cheese-cutter when the hopper is lowered.
