The construction industry is always expanding and providing funding to discover newer and better ways to create and build. The bigger, the better seems to be the resounding mantra for most construction sites. Getting the job done faster, at more cost-effective ways, and the most satisfying manner to the customer are the top priorities of any contracting company. If you ever pass a construction and you were wondering what that huge machine is, hopefully this article will shed some light on your questions. Please remember that reading this article does not mean you are qualified to handle of these machines.
1. Bulldozer- A small chair attached to a gigantic machine with a bigger claw at the end of it’s arm. That description sounds like something from a monster horror flick but it is a very common machine seen at almost every construction site. Bulldozers are pretty self-explanatory. They tear down structures with their strength and then pick up the debris with their claw and deposit it into the proper receptacle.
2. Industrial Vacuum Cleaner– Depending on the company that is employed on the construction site, these industrial vacuum cleaners can range in size and shape. Triton Industries has created an industrial strength vacuum cleaner that is more cost-effective as well as powerful. But usually their appearance is a tank on wheels attached to a large hose bigger than most people. There are so many applications for industrial vacuum cleaners, but they are used to clean up those messes that are just too big Mr. Clean or Mr. Brawny. They can suck up cement, pipe burst, sewage leakage and even utilized in environmental clean-up efforts.
3. Wrecking Ball- It was an actual tool before Miley Cyrus made it famous with her song. Usually a wrecking ball contains a large base structure, a rising structure several stories high, all attached to a huge steel ball. Wrecking balls are used for wide-spread destruction, typically for flattening buildings and other large structures so that they can be cleared away for new construction.
