What it takes to build a road, a building, the future.
A machine that excavates dirt whose bucket is rigidly attached to a hinged pole on the boom (a long shaft) and is drawn backward toward the machine when in use.
A crawler (it has treads that help it move) that has a big-very big- metal blade in front that is used to push a lot of soil, sand and other material during road construction or in clearing land for buildings.
The most common crane is used to lift, shift or lower heavy weights, using a swinging arm attached by cables that project (stick out) from a supporting, usually moveable, beam.
Unlike a regular crane which does not move from its spot, a crawler crane is mounted on an undercarriage that keeps it stable, and has a set of tracks (crawlers) that allow it to move on the job.
This vehicle has a large blade in front to help create a flat surface to the ground, and put the “finish grade” to the “rough grading” done by heavier equipment such as bulldozers and scrapers.
A heavy piece of equipment used to move earth by cutting into the soil. Once its hopper (like a bowl) is full the scraper can move its load to where it can be tumbled out.
