12- 40 Tonne Excavators

The Excavator is probably the most common earthmoving machine you will see on a building site.  It’s a very versatile machine which performs a wide range of tasks.  It has tracks to move around site and work in particular areas.  An excavator is not designed for ‘wheel barrow work’ ( to move material by picking up one full bucket and travelling across a site ); in this situation, unless there is truck access, a bobcat might be used to move the material.  An Excavator up to 6 tonne is most commonly provided with a bobcat which is then called a Combo

Groundbreaker can supply a range of 12-40 Tonne Excavators and also 1-10 Tonne Excavators.  All size excavators perform similar functions in their own space, but the best size machine for the job is generally the largest size that can fit into a space without the size of the machine limiting its ability.
