Welcome back to our latest Digger News post, here at BuyADigger. This week we are focusing on the type of used construction equipment for sale at BuyADigger. With so much variety available when it comes to construction machinery, we want to highlight the main types of machinery available, and how they can be incorporated into your construction project. If you’re new to construction machinery and you’re looking to purchase used diggers and other heavy construction equipment, then you’ve come to the right place!
We have an extensive range of used excavators for sale, so you will definitely have plenty of choice available. Whether you are looking to purchase a single machine for your own landscaping project, or you’re from a construction company of a considerable size, with a huge scale demolition project coming up we can certainly help you.
Mini and Midi Diggers
Here at BuyADigger, we tend to stock mainly Komatsu machinery, due to the quality and efficiency of the excavators.
If you are looking specifically to buy a Komatsu digger, have a read over our previous digger blog post, where we focus solely on the Komatsu brand. We stock the following Mini and Midi Diggers at BuyADigger:
Mini and Midi Diggers are perfect for smaller-scale construction projects, and any landscaping needs. They can be operated very easily by even the newest of individuals to the construction industry, due to the size of the machines. Mini and Midi diggers can be very versatile and can undertake a variety of tasks such as digging, backfilling, assisting with the removal of tree stumps and many more. They are also great for any sites that have limited access, and a mini or midi digger will be a great addition to any construction fleet.
A tracked excavator would normally be used when operating on uneven terrain. They are beneficial for any demolition and forestry work. BuyADigger stock the following tracked excavators:
Tracked excavators can be considered as similar machinery to wheeled excavators due to the tasks that can be carried out. The main difference is the roadliner pads or steel tracks, that allow the machine to manoeuver over uneven or rocky surfaces. The advantage of tracked excavators is that they have additional grip and stability in comparison to a wheeled digger. This will, therefore, increase the digging power as the machinery is stabilised. We stock mainly Komatsu tracked excavators, so if you’re looking to buy a Komatsu then we will have something to meet your specifications. We also stock a LiuGong 922E should you require this particular brand.
We have the following wheeled excavators for sale:
Most of our wheeled excavators are from the Komatsu brand, so if you want to buy a Komatsu, we will have a machine suitable for your project. We also stock the JCB Hydradig, another machine from another trusted, well-known brand that will ensure the highest standard of quality when used.
If you have a project based on streets or roads, it would be advantageous to use a wheeled excavator, also known as a ‘rubber duck’ as it is mounted on rubber tyres, preventing any damage to the road surface, unlike standard tracked excavators. When browsing through used construction equipment for sale, it’s always best to know what requirements you have, to determine which machine would be best for you.
We stock two different brands of telehandlers including Manitou and JCB, giving customers more choice when it comes to used construction equipment for sale. Telehandlers are used in replacement of forklifts on a construction site but are not limited to this particular type of work due to its capabilities. As it is a wheeled vehicle it isn’t restricted to where it can go, meaning they are capable of on and off-road driving.
We have the below telehandlers available to purchase:
Looking at the JCB 540-200 for example, it is the largest reach JCB telehandler available, with a maximum lift height of 20 metres. It is an essential construction machine to have on a demolition site, that may require reaching high areas or picking up a colossal amount of material at one time.
Dumper Trucks / Site Dumpers
We stock Thwaites and Terex site dumpers, as well as Hydrema dumper trucks. Whether you are looking for a one ton dumper for small site projects, or a Hydrema dumper truck that would be suitable for all major construction works, we have a machine to suit you.
If you’re looking to buy a dumper, we have the following available:
Terex 1 ton – 9 ton
Thwaites 3 ton – 9 ton
Dumpers are typically used for the manoeuvering of industrial materials from one place to another. Within our selection of dumpers, customers have the option of straight skip or a swivel skip, allowing easier manoeuvrability for the operator.
Used Road Rollers for sale
A roller is frequently used for post-excavation. When operators require material to be compressed or compacted a roller would be used, this could include any soil, gravel or concrete. We have a selection of used Ammann rollers for sale including:
They are most commonly used at landfills, landscaping and agricultural projects. There are various types of rollers available, but we specialise in Ammann tandem rollers, that have between an 820mm to 1300mm drum width.
