Heavy equipment and machines are heavy-duty vehicles that are specially designed to work on construction tasks like earthwork operations, bulldozers, forklifts, cranes, shovels, backhoes etc. It is often referred to as hydraulic machines because most of this machine uses the basic principle of that hydraulic system to operate.

The interesting thing about the hydraulic system is that the force multiplication is very easy to be added to the system and make the machine to have amazing strength and versatility. For example, an excavator which is one of the large hydraulic machines that can be seen in the most construction site. Either is small or medium or large these excavator actions are quite swift and able to scoop out 1 to 1.5 tons of dirt and move it around with no difficulty at all. This heavy equipment also posses track and a free-spinning toothed wheel and a set of rollers to allow the track to move freely.
Another common heavy equipment that can be found on a construction site is the loader. The loader is usually a tractor that has a front-mounted wide bucket that connected with three hydraulic pistons. Loaders are usually used as a load moving vehicle that load materials, wasted or composite product to a dedicated position of a construction site or on another machine. Some of the loader's bucket can be dismounted and mount with a different kind of equipment in order to increase its versatility. For example, a brush grapple can be often attached to the loaders with correct specification on both pieces of equipment. Sometimes a loader would be too big to use on commercial or warehouse indoor so another type but still pack a punch forklift is introduced. The forklift has the common feature of moving material to a short distance but with an extra advantage on adjusting the angle for the material to put on the ground or platform with a low risk of slipping off the fork. It reduces the need for manpower and amount of time to move goods. Forklift contain different sizes and different purpose but the most common use is the electric forklift. Since electric forklift is generally smaller in size compare to other forklift and does not exhaust gases and therefore is an dispensable equipment for warehousing and manufacturing. They are powered by batteries so comparing with gas-operated, the electric forklift would be less expensive to operate and the motor sound also quieter which eventually lower the rate of pollution and potential danger of a gas leak.
Choosing the right heavy equipment for the right job is important as the cost of renting or buying heavy equipment are not cheap. Without proper planning and taught out the operation cost will increase and the efficiency of work will not be maximized.
