Different types of earthmoving equipment in India

Growing infrastructure projects such as railways, dams, highways, bridges, and roads are major factors boosting the demand for earth moving equipment. Installation of machine control systems in earthmoving equipment helps to improve the efficiency on sites. Furthermore, by reducing the need for rework and decreasing material wastage, machine control can help to improve the sustainability of the operation. Different types of earthmoving equipment models are being manufactured keeping in mind the customer needs. Technological advancements in the field of remote monitoring and telematics are some of the key factors driving the earthmoving equipment demand. Market players are integrating their equipment with advanced software solutions to provide robust monitoring and control capabilities to users. Discussed below are different types of earthmoving equipment models available in the Indian market.

Types of earthmoving equipment models in India

Excavators

Modern hydraulic excavators come in a wide range of sizes. The new hybrid models now manufactured has the lowest ever fuel consumption and has also been designed to further reduce CO2 emissions and running costs. Incorporating proven technology, an advanced hydraulic system and a new lightweight arm, it achieves this without compromising on high levels of performance and easy operation. One of the key benefits of hydraulic machinery is the ability to achieve motion via hydraulic actuators such as cylinders and swing motors. And when hydraulics are combined with modern technology such as grade control, laser positioning, and GPS, the potential seems almost endless. Manufacturers are also incorporating more sophisticated hydraulic functions that allow the operator to adjust hydraulic flow to the application. Hydraulic upgrades on the latest models include selectable modes to optimize available hydraulic speed and power, plus a manual throttle dial to adjust engine speed and power as needed.

Bulldozers

Bulldozers can be found on a wide range of sites, mines and quarries, military bases, heavy industry factories, engineering projects and farms. Modern bulldozers are built to withstand the incredible stresses of today’s mine operations while achieving the production levels that mining company bottom lines demand. High tractive effort and the low drive, K-bogie undercarriage system make these bulldozers incredible ripping machines. Using high production Sigma blades or inside-mounted six-way blades, these bulldozers are versatile enough to accomplish those tasks and so much more. And now, built-in intelligence is available so you can work flawlessly with leading GPS grade control systems. Couple that with 3D grade control and you get a fast and accurate grading system. And i-machines are even a step further, with built-in intelligence that works with grade control systems. Large dozers have the power and capacity to be production units and still retain the precise control and maneuverability to grade and shape when required. Unique Sigma blades can increase production by up to 15%.

Loaders

New age loaders deliver more horsepower than predecessors. Hydrostatic transmission offers Total Machine Control, which allows operators to choose between multiple settings: speed-in-grip and a V-pattern control with foot pedal steering. On-board hydrostatic and hydraulic pressure sensors provide operators with pressure readings via an in-cab monitor. Eco Mode optimizes fuel economy by up to 20 percent while maintaining ground speed by automatically adjusting engine speed and transmission settings based on the load. The new-age model offers many more features – one of the most eye-catching is a new design for the front frame and bonnet components on the trucks. This feature enables an articulation to hinge positioned behind the turning ring to provide equal weight distribution to the front axle even during maximum steer articulation. The Advanced Power Management system works in the background to ensure that you save fuel without compromising performance.

Motor Graders

Motor graders are also an easily recognizable earthmoving machine. They are characterized by their long structure and large blade between the front wheel axles and the main part of the machine. This allows a larger span of movement and control for the grader operator, giving them a wider scope of work to be completed. Modern graders are manufactured with articulated frame graders. This is as they are more useful in smaller construction spaces where there is less room to move or turn around. Small motor graders are perfect for landscaping jobs, road maintenance and other tasks that need to be completed in a tight space, whereas large motor graders are typically used for larger-scale projects, such as highways and motorway construction. Graders are vastly used in the maintenance and construction of paved roads. Usually, they are used to prepare the base course to create a wide flat surface upon which to place the road surface.

Compactor

Compactors are now specially designed with operator comfort in mind. With its closed HVAC cabin and a more powerful engine, the compactor is highly suitable for heavier application usage. It is a product that will cater to activities as diverse as urban construction, road building, infrastructure, and mining. Designed for productivity, manufacturers are providing a roller compactor range suitable for various projects, depending upon the volume of compaction work. The machine is equipped with LiveLink and Compaction Coach – a Compaction Monitoring System that has been introduced to strengthen the roadways industry. It optimizes the number of passes and enables you to monitor the operator’s performance with real-time compaction alerts.

Telehandler

All new Side Engine Telehandler comes with a new sleek global design and Q Fit attachment makes the product compatible with several attachments, giving it an edge above every other material handling product. The existing excellence of lift capacity, long reach and impressive lifting bucket is now complemented by exceptional maneuverability that makes the Side Engine Telehandler, the first choice in agriculture, construction and a host of industries. An air-conditioned cabin now features as a standard across all Telehandlers models to enhance operator comfort. Modern

Telehandlers are engineered to move any material quickly and safely – enabling bottom line differentiation across a host of industries and applications including RMC, Crusher, Cotton, Ceramic and more. The newer models r heaps and stacks with 12 feet maximum reach on 7 metre machines and are fuel-efficient to reduce recurring costs.

Dump Trucks

Modern dump trucks can transport heavy loads quickly, easily and cost-effectively. Available in rigid or articulated versions with state-of-the-art designs, they are built around a powerful Komatsu engine and are exceptionally strong machines. They guarantee complete driving safety, even at high speeds. From the transmission system and chassis to the axles and suspension, all the components are designed to handle grueling daily stresses for maximum reliability. Dump trucks come in an assortment of types and configurations, with each designed for use across a variety of different applications, so picking the right one for your project or operation is important. Popular applications include using articulated dump trucks for civil and mining operations, rigid rear dump trucks for use in tandem with hydraulic excavators in mining. The latest models are equipped with an open-box bed, which is hinged at the rear and equipped with hydraulic rams to lift the front, allowing the material in the bed to be deposited on the ground behind the truck at the site of delivery.

Pile Driver

Modern pile driver machines come with a grease port and are provided for automatic and/or manual greasing of the demolition tool. This prevents damage or premature wear caused by a lack of grease. The unique one-piece design eliminates the need for mechanical springs and overly heavy mounting brackets. The net result is a minimization of machine wear and improved operator comfort for greater reliability and productivity. It is available in different models, divided into large, medium and small and available in various versions. Combining maximum power with the effectiveness of intelligent technology, hydraulic hammers are unbeatable when it comes to completing the toughest jobs in the shortest possible time-frame – whether it’s the biggest demolition jobs, primary breaking in quarries, digging foundations or excavating huge rail and road tunnels.
