Woodinville Excavator Rentals
An excavator is a piece of earth moving equipment. Sometimes referred to as a digger, an excavator is made up of a reinforced cab where the operator sits, a boom that extends out from the cab, a dipper attached to the boom, and a bucket on the end of the dipper. The entire assembly is usually mounted on a tracked or wheeled base that is capable of rotating up to 360 degrees.
Excavators were originally built with pulleys and cables with steam power to drive them. As technology has improved, excavators are gas or diesel powered and use hydraulic cylinders and pumps to move the articulated arm.
There is a wide variety of excavators available on the market in many different sizes and capacities. Most excavators have detachable buckets allowing them to be outfitted with much more than a bucket, essentially make them much more than an excavator / earth mover.
We try to stock the most useful mix for a variety of jobs needed by people wanting to do an Woodinville excavator rental. Woodinville commercial operations and individuals alike will find we can often meet their needs.
Woodinville Excavator Rentals Safety
Safe operation your Woodinville excavator rental is critical. Excavators are professional pieces of equipment that are powerful and heavy. Care should be taken whenever using an excavator. Here are some requirements you should keep in mind when using an excavator provided by machinefinder.com:
- Never permit riders in the bucket, cab, or anywhere else on the machine. Excavators only have one seat, which is meant for the operator.
- Never attempt to operate the excavator unless you are sitting in the seat and in full control.
- Reduce the excavator’s speed when working on rough terrain or within congested areas.
- Carry the bucket low to the ground during transport. This will increase visibility and machine stability.
- When moving the excavator around the job site, select a route that is as flat as possible.
- Steer the machine as straight as possible and only make small gradual changes in direction when turning is needed.
- Travel directly up slopes vertically instead of diagonally.
- When propelling up slopes, the boom and the arm should be extended with the bucket carried low and rolled out. This will allow you to drop the bucket and prevent the equipment from sliding if necessary.
- When propelling down a slope, the bucket bottom should be low and parallel to the ground.
- For better stability, work with the propel motors to the rear of the machine.
- Dump spoil piles as far away from the excavation as possible to avoid cave-ins.
- When doing excavation jobs on slopes, level the machine by digging a shelf (or bench cut). Material removed from the upper slope can be used to build up the lower slope and create a level surface.
- On steep bench cuts, cut enough away from the upper bank to allow for adequate swing clearance when casting downslope.
- Never dig underneath the excavator.
- When backfilling a cave-in, the excavator’s tracks should be at a 90-degree angle to the excavation with the propel motors to the rear of the machine.
- When loading trucks, never swing the excavator bucket or the truck cab. By swinging over the rear of the truck, any loose materials will fall on the ground or in the bed, rather than on the cab.
- Never attempt the clean the excavator’s bucket by striking it on the ground or against another object.
- Always use your seat belt.
- Make sure that all the mirrors are clean and properly adjusted.
- Make sure the propulsion system and controls are working correctly.
- Call your local utility company to have the job site marked for underground lines or structures.
- Only make small, gradual turns.
- Don’t make sudden movements.
- Don’t try to carry loads that exceed an excavator’s operating weight capacity.
- Park on a level surface with the bucket lowered.
- Don’t dig underneath sidewalks or other structures without a support system to prevent a dangerous collapse.
- Wear a helmet and ear and respiratory protection when needed.1
