    When to use an excavator

    Published on 14 May 2019, Tuesday, 1:11 PM

    Earthmoving projects can be completed more quickly and efficiently when you use the right tools and equipment.

    One machine that is bound to help you out on this job is an excavator. Tradespeople and DIYers alike can use them to create trenches for drainage, demolition works, building renovations and road construction.

    Garden landscaping projects, whether they entail digging out holes to put plants in or completely remodelling the lawn, can be performed more efficiently by using an excavator. You'll avoid straining your back and over-exerting yourself by manually doing the earth moving.

    If you've got a traffic job coming up that requires digging up curbs or footpaths, excavators can help with that, too. What's better is that a variety of attachments are available to transform the excavator, such as a hydraulic digger that can help with demolition and pipe digging work. 

    Swimming pool excavation can be made much easier by using an excavator, reducing the number of people required to dig out the space in order to complete the project on time. Similarly, the machines are useful when it comes to digging up sewage systems.

    Excavators, particularly mini-excavators, are relatively small machines that can easily access tight spaces, making them as effective for backyard use as they are in large-scale construction sites.
