Industries That Can Benefit From Cat Excavator Rentals

From mini to large excavators, these versatile digging machines with a host of bucket sizes and specialty attachments are a workhorse on many construction, mining and other active jobsites. With its ability to fit into small and residential sites, a mini excavator can be the perfect piece of equipment to dig a backyard pool or trenches for an underground sprinkler system.

On the other hand, when your worksite involves moving away aggregates and collected materials from a mining site, a large excavator is ready to step in and complete the job with ease.

The following industries and applications are just a few of the most popular places where you’ll find excavator rentals can make a big difference:

  • Construction and demolition: By using either its bucket to move earth and debris in digging jobs on construction sites or an attached hammer to break up concrete and other building materials on a demolition site, medium to full-sized excavators serve to help keep construction and demolition jobs right on schedule.
  • Mining: Every minute counts when a mining site is up and running. That’s why having the right large excavator can mean the difference between hitting your quotas or not. And when a site becomes busier than you anticipated or a piece of equipment breaks down, a rental excavator can keep your site open and your team working.
  • Forestry: With attachments like thumbs, augers and grubbers, the forestry industry counts on a variety of excavators to help it move everything from its heavy equipment to felled trees. And when a job may take too long and you need to stay on your deadlines, a rental excavator can help you speed up the process of getting your lumber loaded up and on the road.
  • Dredging: From building marinas to maintaining ports, dredging is another job that counts on the right size of excavators to dig up and move earth and underwater materials. And since a dredging project often can’t wait until your permanent fleet is ready to take on the project, a rental excavator is the solution you need to get the job done and maintain a healthy profit margin.
  • Snow removal: When you’ve got lots of snow and ice to move or remove, an excavator can do the trick with great results. Plus, since this task typically occurs during seasonal upticks and has to be performed quickly, you can easily add to your fleet temporarily with the right excavator rentals.
