What Is Construction Equipment?

May 29, 2019

Construction equipment or heavy equipment refers to heavy-duty vehicles, specially designed for executing construction tasks, most frequently ones involving earthwork operations. Heavy equipment functions through the mechanical advantage of a simple machine, the ratio between input force applied and force exerted is multiplied. Some equipment uses hydraulic drives as a primary source of motion.

Many different types of heavy construction equipment exist, so the list of all the different kinds would be quite extensive. Some of the most common pieces found on a construction site, however, include cranes, backhoes, forklifts or telehandlers, excavators, cranes, and bulldozers. These pieces of heavy construction equipment are generally designed to move large amounts of earth or other materials. Cranes and telehandlers are usually used to transport heavy materials used in the erection of buildings or other structures, though cranes can also be used for certain types of demolition procedures.
