DIFFERENT TYPE OF EXCAVATORS around calgary , alberta AND THEIR APPLICATIONS
Excavators are generally used for earthmoving projects, digging, trenching or related activities. Broadly speaking, there are two categories of excavators, namely cable and hydraulic excavators. The difference between the two is based on the movement of their machine parts.
The following are the types of excavators you can rent based on your project:
Crawler excavators are most commonly used for mining, trench digging and landscape grading. These machines are available on wheels instead of a track.
This type of excavator uses a large hoist rope and a dragline system for earthmoving in underwater projects or road excavations.
You can operate suction excavators using water jets and a high-pressure vacuum for clearing dirt, soil and debris. A suction excavator is used for underground applications and other delicate projects.
Long-reach excavators are well suited for heavy-duty digging and industrial projects. Some excavators can go up to 100 feet with suitable attachments.
It is a smaller version of a crawler excavator which is useful for narrow job sites and delicate terrain work, like landscaping. You can choose to rent them for small jobs.
It is not different from any regular excavator, except that it is fitted on wheels instead of tracks. They are commonly used in city projects.

What Is the Difference Between an Excavator and a Backhoe?
Although both excavators and backhoes can be used for digging purposes, there are some key differences between the two. A backhoe has a standard tractor body with a boom bucket at the back. With backhoes, you even get the option of adding a front attachment.
On the other hand, excavators only have a digging bucket or some other attachment on the front. While excavators are used for digging, lifting large objects, landscaping, and demolition purposes, backhoes are more versatile and are used for digging, loading, lifting, pushing and moving as well.
What Is the Most Commonly Used Construction Equipment?
At Conquip Inc, you can choose to rent from a wide range of construction equipment like excavators, compactors, dozers, among others. The most commonly used construction equipment are skid steers , excavators as well as boom lifts. You can also choose to rent a mini-excavator from us.
Can I Use My Excavator as a Crane?
According to the design and build of an excavator, lifting is not the ideal or primary function of an excavator. Doing this can be dangerous for your equipment (excavator), the operator and the surrounding area.
But, when used with caution and great care, you can lift and move equipment with your excavator on-site. It is suggested that lifting from your excavator must be done by a trained excavator operator.
How Deep Can I Dig with My Excavator?
The digging depth of your excavator depends on the size of your equipment. For instance, there are some specific kinds of excavators known as long-reach excavators. These are specifically used to dig deeper than a regular excavator. The estimated digging depth of your excavator is also based on the terrain, the size of the equipment, the location of the dig site and the nature of the job.
How to Choose the Right Excavator for My next Project?
You can choose to rent the right excavator as per your project specifications. Consult with us to learn more about the type of excavator your project needs. We can also guide you to consider the right type of attachments and the time duration needed for your excavator rental.
Professionals in the field suggest that it is more efficient for you to rent the right sized equipment for each application instead of using a single excavator for the entire project. Connect with us to learn more today.
