Special features of excavators
Digging is the major purpose of these vehicles. It is performed by means of a bucket. Its size depends on the power capacity of the machine and the type of soil to dig in. Hydraulic hammers get applied in case the soil is stiff or frozen.
Demolition excavators are peculiar in the way that instead of a bucket they are equipped with a steel boom and a rope. The height of the boom is not adjustable. The important parameters for such units are steering angle, radial motion speed and total weight of an excavator that counterbalances the inertial force of a striking part.
