When Do You Use an Excavator?

An excavator is a mighty construction machine that can help in a variety of situations. With some machines weighing up to 200,000 pounds, excavators rotate 360 degrees and help relocate materials to far distances while staying in place. Now, if you’re unsure when you’ll need to call in an excavator to save the day, here are a few common scenarios to keep in mind:


One of the most popular uses for an excavator is during demolition. Excavators are the prime tool for getting the job done, from demolishing a house to removing an inground pool — they can tackle it all. In addition to lending a helping arm on residential properties, excavators come in handy on commercial properties, too; they can help demolish and dismantle buildings — such as office buildings and hotels.


Another use for an excavator lives up to its name: excavating the job site. Whether you need to have earth moved or heavy rocks relocated, an excavator is a machine that can make it all happen. Additionally, an excavator can help with tunneling, wall shafts, and other digging-related tasks. 

Snow Removal

Sadly, the summer weather doesn’t last forever in Maryland. And when the first snowfall appears, it can make for some tricky conditions. Luckily, an excavator can help! Excavators are great for removing large heaps of snow from commercial properties, such as parking lots. Furthermore, an excavator can help clear snow from your jobsite; this allows you to meet your deadlines without worrying about putting your project on hold due to inclement weather.
