Here is how an excavator works in Singapore

  • To know how an excavator works, you first need to understand the machine first. Excavators (Hydraulic Excavators) are heavy construction equipment consisting of a boom, dipper (or stick), bucket and cab on a rotating platform known as the “house”. The house sits atop an undercarriage with tracks or wheels. They are a natural progression from the steam shovels and often mistakenly called power shovels.
  • All movement and functions of a hydraulic excavator are accomplished through the use of hydraulic fluid, with hydraulic cylinders and hydraulic motors. Due to the linear actuation of hydraulic cylinders, their mode of operation is fundamentally different from cable-operated excavators which use winches and steel ropes to accomplish the movements. These are often used in a lot of factories and even construction processes on a day to day level. It is not difficult to come across on a construction site. Due to its easy nature of working, a lot of companies now employ its usage regularly.
