Excavator

Back to pictures of our site equipment – this is an excavator, of which we’ve had several on site. It is most versatile. It has been used to shape features, load materials, dig sand, clear trees, build bridges, compact fairways and dig trenches – as in this case for our high power lines. It is most impressive to see someone use the bucket as an appendage to bridge across a span. It handles a large tree like breaking and flinging a small twig, yet with a skilled hand, it looks like they could play a cello. We've had some pretty big buckets on site - a couple tons per scoop. They require significant maintenance, especially when clearing - the operator can more than just operate.
