Take a look at any construction site in the country and chances are that you…
In building, the demolitions process can be just as important as the construction process. Demolishing unsafe buildings safely takes a degree of skill and expertise. Demolitions of smaller buildings, those that are around two or three stories high is a relatively simple process. It can often be accomplished by making use of common heavy equipment and usually involves the use of heavy equipment, in particular of excavators.
Excavators are particularly useful for demolitions because of their strength and size. An excavator fitted with a grapple can make short work of a home or small building. The operator can make use of both the brute strength of the excavator while also enjoying the pinpoint precision that is afforded by the articulated arm.
Excavators can be used for the bulk of the demolitions process, which can proceed very quickly with the support of a bulldozer. The excavator can take part in rubble clearing, but if the space is available a bulldozer is generally faster. A bulldozer will push large amounts of rubble at once, while an excavator is limited to the size of the bucket or the amount that the grapple can hold.
Once the building is torn down and the rubble cleared, the construction process can begin. If you are in the construction industry and would like to learn how to use an excavator, contact us at Associated Training Services. We have helped many people, just like you get their excavator certification.
