There are many equipment used for building construction purposes. A crane is usually equipped with ropes and chains and it’s commonly used to lift materials and move them horizontally. For building structures like the bridges and flyovers, these are most sought after equipment. There are different types of cranes:Tower crane: It is used in the construction of tall buildings. It can go up to a height 300 feet and lift about 20 tons of weight.Aerial crane: Also called ‘sky cranes’, they’re used to migrate heavy loads or in disaster management programs.Other types of cranes used in constructions are floating cranes in laying bridges, ports or dams.
Backhoes: Backhoes have been used for construction purposes since many years due of its versatile uses, speed and fuel efficiency. Backhoe has many unique features which makes it the number one equipment for construction:Backhoe is an all-in-one type of equipment with numerous attachments to make construction work simpler. For instance: one would need three separate equipment for breaking and smashing rocks, transporting the material and digging trenches. It is possible to replace all these three equipment with a single backhoe.Backhoes drive at high speeds of about 40kmph, which helps to drive them to the construction site and move them between various construction sites too.
Backhoes have kept pace with technology and come with facilities like GPRS, radio, air conditioning etc. making work space comfortable and thereby increasing productivity. A forklift, also called a fort truck or a life truck, is a powered truck used for industrial purposes to lift all transport materials and goods. Their main function at construction site is to transport of goods used for construction purposes. They are available in many configurations of load capacities ranging one to five tons of loads.Concrete mixers: Concrete mixers are also known as a cement mixer. They combine cement with water to make a homogenous mixture of concrete. Concrete mixers are very useful in the making of cement and cement is part of most building construction.
