When it comes to excavation and trenching, the construction equipment industry offers many options. Machines in this category vary in size and specs, and each type of excavation equipment brings its own unique set of benefits. The massive steel tracked excavators are popular in the earthmoving and mining industries, while the harbors. The heavy dredgers, which specialize in digging under water, are also in this category. They can be seen doing underwater excavation work on various waterways and harbors.
At the other end of the spectrum are the compact excavators, typically with a rubber track undercarriage. At McLaren Industries we are proud to be one of the leading suppliers or rubber tracks from compact excavators. What’s more, we carry replacement rubber tracks for thousands of makes and models of mini excavators. Many of them are in various sizes and tread patterns, and available for equipment by Bobcat, John Deere, Caterpillar, Komatsu, Case, Kobelco, IHI, Kubota, Ditch Witch, New Holland, and many other manufacturers of compact excavators.
While excavators may seems the most popular choice of construction equipment for excavation work, there is another machine in the industry that is considered by many as the ultimate workhorse in the digging business. This is the Loader Backhoe, the heavy equipment vehicle with a loader bucket on the front and a backhoe on the back. Also known as a Backhoe Loader, this machine offers great versatility, and maneuverability. It uses rubber tires and typically can move with a maximum speed of 25mph. The size of this machine is perfectly suited for the most common earthmoving and excavation jobs in urban areas.
