Excavators Diggers &construction




Excavators and road construction rollers are two heavy-duty machines that are commonly used in the construction industry. Both types of machines play an important role in the construction of roads, buildings, and other structures.


Excavators are primarily used for digging and moving large amounts of soil, debris, and other materials. They are equipped with a powerful hydraulic system that allows them to easily break up and move soil, rocks, and other obstacles. Excavators are also commonly used for demolition work, as they can easily tear down structures and remove debris.





Road construction rollers, on the other hand, are used to compact

and smooth out the surface of the road. They come in different sizes

and shapes, and they are designed to handle different types of

surfaces. Rollers work by applying pressure to the surface of the

road, which compacts the materials and creates a smooth, even

surface.



Project Details


Our kids got to sit in each of these and in the drivers seat handle all the controls which are intuitive. Hard hats focus and good communication saw us moving debris drilling and compacting EARTH



Background


Another key aspect of driving an excavator is understanding the machine's capabilities and limitations. We familiarized ourseves with the controls and how they aff ect the movement of the excavator. We took time to plan out work area and approached each task methodically. Remember to always follow the manufacturer's guidelines and recommended operating procedures.



Goals


  • Be a part and communicate with a construction team



Objective and Scope


  • Instill focus concentration and confidence



Deliverables


Overall, driving an excavator requires focus, attention to detail, and a commitment to safety. This was a great experience for all our 3 year old's.
