Supplying machinery for the civil, agriculture and demolition industries, we provide excavators with dippers, buckets and a cab that rotates, that can provide many functional skills for your site, including construction, forestry mulching and digging holes. Our excavators are operated by hydraulic systems, which are powered by high pressurised oil that triggers a hydraulic spin at the axis, which enables the machine to rotate 360 degrees and dig. Our wide range of machines can be used for many purposes including trenching, mining and drilling, allowing you to use one machine for multiple functions.

How Do Excavators Work?

Excavators are heavy pieces of equipment used in many industries including forestry, agriculture and waste. The main parts of the machine are the undercarriage, bucket, stick and house, and they work together using motors and gears to trigger movement. Within the house of the excavator, there is a fuel cylinder and an engine, which is attached to the undercarriage via the casket, which can rotate 360 degrees, allowing the excavator to function freely. Our excavators are powered by hydraulics, and can be used for engineering projects, and are able to dig up groundworks and create holes and foundations. The main excavator manufacturers are JCB, Bobcat and Avant, and we supply high quality machinery from all of these suppliers. Our tracked excavators provide many advantages including high traction, less impact on the ground and free movement on rough terrain. On the other hand, choosing a digger with wheels enables you to move your machinery faster and move around more easily, so for advice on which machine will be the most appropriate for your groundworks, get in touch with us today.
