The crawler used excavator is a typical type of machine used for construction. There are many types of the this kind of machines sold well both at home and abroad. Such as Cat excavators, Volvo excavators, Hitachi excavators and so forth. Then what is a crawler excavator and its components. When you know clearly about it, you will choose a proper type more easily.

In the common sense, we call the machine crawler excavator for the sake of its mounting ways. It is mounted on a set of tracks that "crawl" forward or backward rather than roll as tires would. We know that these machines are commonly used at construction sites or for any heavy digging applications, though the bucket can be switched out with other attachments, making the machine useful for other applications.

Let us see its components. The main body of the crawler excavator generally consists of two parts. One is the base and the other is two tracks. The base is the part to which the tracks are mounted, and the house, in which the engine is mounted and the operator sits during use of the machine. The base feature guide wheels over which the tracks will be run. Two tracks will be mounted, one on either side of the machine, and parallel to each other. These tracks are used for propelling the unit forward and backward, and for providing stability on loose or muddy soil.

The crawler excavator's house will contain the operator's cabin and engine compartment. We can see that the crawler machine has many features when used for working. A large and powerful diesel engine is equipped for power and torque. The operator's cabin can be quite small, and it is usually enclosed to protect the operator from debris or the weather outside. The controls for the tracks, the boom, and for the house itself are located inside the cabin. The house can usually rotate 360 degrees to allow for greater access of materials around the machine.

An important attachment of the excavator is the bucket, which is mounted to the end of the arm. The articulated boom arm is hydraulically controlled which is extended from the front of the house of the crawler excavator. The bucket is responsible for scooping and transporting materials, and the capacity of this bucket can vary depending on the size of the machine and the intended use of the crawler excavator. The large machines will have more capacity than the mini ones.

The crawler used excavator is always used by us in the current time. With it, our construction work will be done efficiently and fastly. However, there are so many types for us to choose if there is a need that we should have certain ways to identify which one is good.
