Equipment and heavy machinery in construction

Heavy construction equipment.  Heavy equipment refers to heavy – duty vehicles, specially designed for executing construction tasks more frequently involving operations earthworks. They are also known as construction equipment, plant construction, movements land, vehicles engineering or simply equipment.

Usually, they are composed of five sets of equipment: practice, traction, structure, power train, control and information. Heavy equipment functions have advantages over the mechanics of a simple machine, the relationship between the input force applied and force exerted is multiplied. Today most hydraulic equipment is used as a primary source of transferring power.

The use of heavy equipment has a long history. The ancient Roman engineer Vitruvius (1st century BC) gave a detailed description of the heavy equipment and cranes in ancient Rome in his treatise on architecture.

Drive: off road, tires and tracks Heavy equipment requires specialized tires for various construction applications. While many types of equipment are applicable to continuous tracks severest requirements services, tires are used in higher speed or with the necessary mobility.

Understanding what equipment will be used during the life of the tires requires the selection. The selection of tires can have a significant cost of production and the unit impact. There are three types of off-road tires, the transport machines earthmoving work slow – moving earth moving machines, and cargo transport as well as the excavation.

Off-road tires are six categories of service C compactor, construction machinery E, G grader, loader L, LS-ML log skidder, mining and logging. Within these categories of services are different types of treads designed for use on a hard surface, soft surface and rock. The tires are a major expense in any construction project, careful consideration should be given to avoid excessive wear or damage.
