Earthmoving and Mining (Above Ground)

The earthmoving and mining sector equipment has been designed primarily to move earth and minerals in large earthmoving and mining projects.

Some of this equipment finds it place in other applications, however, and the use of bulldozers and articulated trucks on road and highway projects are just a couple of examples.

One area of surface mining includes giant machines such as drills, electric shovels and giant draglines, some of which have buckets that are capable of moving 150 cubic metres of material in one scoop.

Although somewhat smaller than the electric shovel or especially the giant dragline, the mass excavator also fits here, which is basically a large version of the excavator that is used more for mass excavation than for more limited exaction or trenching.
