Excavators and construction projects are synonymous to one another despite the fact that both project and excavator types differ from each other from a variety of perspectives. These machines have become the backbone of construction projects regardless of the project size due to the various excavators. This is mainly due to the fact that technologies involving excavators have developed so fast that they have the capacity to perform a multitude of heavy and light tasks for heavy industries such as mining operations and excavating as well as domestic landscaping and grading or even clearing debris.
Predominantly, the ability of excavators to perform complex and critical tasks is also due to the mobility component of these machines that come with tracks, wheels or mechanical legs that allow excavators to move across almost any kind of terrain that the construction project is taking place. Apart from the undercarriage construct which in essence is balancing act between speed and stability (e.g. crawlers on tracks that have two rotating chained tracks provide stability on ‘rough, uneven or muddy terrain’ albeit slow, meanwhile excavators on wheels are able to move faster, but are seldom used on unstable or uneven terrain), hydraulic couplings are the latest element that come with excavators. These hydraulic coupling systems are in essence ‘additional tools’ that could be attached to excavators to perform additional tasks such as cutting, drilling, compacting, crushing and much more.
Buying and Renting Excavators
Excavators are much like any other machine that could be purchased directly from heavy industry machinery suppliers or they could be obtained from 3rd party vendors via excavator hire. Whilst it is true that owning an excavator would save construction companies quite a bit, if the logistics of maintaining an excavator is taken into account, the difference in savings is negligible.
This is especially true for smaller SMEs that are often constrained by budgetary concerns; therefore, the option to hire excavators is the most feasible solution. Smaller construction outfits that generally manage domestic or small construction projects that require mini excavator rentals are generally advised to use mini excavators for hire, instead of buying them outright as different excavators perform different tasks and as such it would not be a strategic move to buy these excavators for one-off projects.
Mini Excavators for Hire
Mini excavators or compact excavators that are generally taken on hire by smaller construction outfits are certainly perfect for construction projects in urban areas where ‘working space’ is almost always an issue. The ‘good thing’ about these smaller excavators is that despite their smaller sizes which make them effective in tight working spaces, they are able to deliver sufficient enough power to perform the same tasks that their larger cousins are able to perform, only with additional frequency.
Using larger excavators in tight spaces could result in damaging the surrounding areas due to their weight and ‘rotation’ or ‘tail swing’ and hence for projects in private property the mini excavator becomes the perfect solution due to its cost effectiveness when taken on hire and as well as its effectiveness in accomplishing tasks within tight spaces.
