WHAT IS EARTHMOVING?

Earthmoving refers to the relocation of large quantities of earth (soil and rocks) using heavy equipment. Its uses range from agricultural and construction to civil applications.

Mining

Mining is the extraction of valuable minerals or other geological materials from the Earth.  Most mining practices, especially underground mining, involve digging into the ground to access these materials. In the process, much soil and rock are removed from the mine. These materials need to be moved to allow easier access to mines.

Construction

Construction refers to creating buildings and other infrastructure. Earthmoving services are required by construction companies for many reasons. For example, when building a house, a foundation must first be constructed. This involves digging into the ground, removing soil and rocks, to create a hole into which cement is poured. The earth removed from the ground to create a foundation needs to be moved away so it doesn’t get in the way of the construction process. Using earthmoving machinery makes the moving process a lot more effective.

Demolition

When a building is demolished, a lot of rubble is produced. The easiest way to remove this rubble from the site it is to hire an earthmover.

360
At the base of the machine, an Excavator usually has two tracks to move it. Above the tracks is a platform that rotates (180° or 360° degrees).
165kW
With Maximum Engine Power of 165 kW, TLBs go by several different names, including backhoe, digger, and loader backhoe. Strictly speaking, the term backhoe refers to the hydraulic arms and hinged bucket at the rear of the machine that is used to excavate material. It gets its name from the fact that it pulls the material toward the back of the loader, making it a backhoe (unlike a shovel, which digs away from the machine).
