Doosan crawler excavator

Crawler excavators by Doosan

Crawler excavators are trucks traditionally used to excavate soil in order to dig holes or trenches. They have tracks instead of wheels, allowing them to operate in difficult terrain. Crawler excavators are useful in many situations as they can be combined with attachments, such as a shear to cut concrete or metal structures, to increase their functionality. When equipped with a grappler attachment, a crawler can be used to sort through refuse or as a log carrier in the forestry environment. Crawler excavators are used mainly in construction, but are also used in forestry, mining and recycling applications. Doosan is one of the leading producers of crawler excavators in the world.

Dump trucks are used to move raw matter such as earth, rocks, refuse and gravel. Off-road dump trucks are specially built to be able to operate on difficult terrain and the dump body is a built in component of the truck instead of being an attachment. Off-road dump trucks are mostly used for the removal of soil in mining operations and the moving of refuse in garbage dumps. On-road trucks are trucks with a dump body attachment and are used to transport goods for long distances using roads. More used Dumpers available here.
