Equipment Type

 Crawler Excavators

Crawler Excavators are utilitarian machines that can dig trenches, load trucks, lift pipe, and handle attachments, such as hydraulic breakers, shears, and grapples. These machines range in size from the "mini" that fits through a back-yard gate, to those in mining applications and have operating weights of a quarter million pounds or more.
