What Types Of Plant Machinery Are Used In Construction?
The construction industry utilises a wide range of equipment, vehicles and tools in order to complete a vast array of different tasks and projects. There are several key machines which you will find on almost any construction site, regardless of the project.
Excavators are one of the most utilised pieces of plant machinery and are an extremely useful and versatile machine.
They can be used for digging, lifting and demolishing and are therefore useful for a wide range of applications. Most building sites will have at least one type of excavator, if not multiple.
Bulldozers are another efficient and versatile machine which can be used for several different tasks, such as cleaning land, manoeuvring heavy objects or materials and, of course, for bulldozing and demolition.
These will usually be found on larger scale projects where more force and power is necessary for moving materials and levelling surfaces, however can be useful even for smaller scale, domestic projects if large amounts of material need to be moved.
Another key machine are loaders, such as front loaders and skid steer loaders. These are used for manoeuvring materials and transporting them across sites.
The type of loader needed will vary depending on the nature of the task and there are many different types of loader available which enables them to work efficiently in almost any conditions.
Forklifts are another useful and frequently used machine. They are able to carry very heavy loads and manoeuvre them with ease and efficiency, making them an invaluable addition to any construction site.
These are just a few of the many different machines you may frequently find on a building site and there are many others,such as cranes, dump trucks, mixers and pavers which are all equally as useful when completing a range of different construction projects.
