Crawler Excavators

A crawler excavator is a construction machine used for excavating rock and soil and then loading the material into trucks or moving it to other locations. The crawler term refers to the use of a pair of large tracks instead of tires for moving the equipment around. The boom, or arm of the machine is usually capable of fitting various attachments to the end in order to accomplish specific jobs such as digging, breaking, or scooping.
