What is an excavator?
Excavators, often called diggers, are heavy duty construction machines with boom, dipper and bucket for powerful earthworks operation. The swivelling cab sits above the undercarriage and the machine is manoeuvred on either wheels or tracks. Excavators are serious workhorses used for many applications.

What is an excavator used for?
An excavator can be used for digging trenches, post holes and foundations. Excavator attachments include claw, cutter and breaker. They can also be used for pile driving, materials handling and general grading/landscaping.

What is the difference between a backhoe and an excavator?
The major difference is the size. Excavators are larger than backhoes and are used to perform tasks beyond the capacity of a backhoe. A 5T excavator with GPS guidance can be used by anyone with an excavator license.
