There are different categories of equipment used for construction purposes. One of the categories is earth moving equipment. Given below is a list of some earth moving equipment used by construction workers:

1. Excavators

Excavators are made over either wheels or tracks, depending on the preference of the builder. It is made of a long arm which is attached to a movable cab that can move around 360 degrees. Attached to the end of the long metallic arm is a bucket which is used for excavation purposes during construction. Examples of use of excavators include mining, handling material and demolishing structures.

2. Bulldozers

These are one of the strongest earth moving equipment that is used by builders. A large flat blade is the main feature of the bulldozer. The movement of the blade is controlled by the driver of the vehicle. The purpose of this heavy equipment is to move dirt through large open areas of land. Softwares such as subcontractor software can be used to manage the inventory of bulldozers on construction sites.

3. Trenchers

This is used to dig a trench for underground pipes on the construction site. The conveyor belt system of this equipment make it easy to excavate material from the ground and place it next to the trench under construction. The digging feature of the trencher can be adjusted depending on the depth of excavation and the hardness of the excavating material.

To conclude, there are different types of earth moving equipment available for construction.
