What is the Difference Between Excavators and Wheel Loaders
If you are in the construction machinery industry, you can use the correct machinery to complete the work better. If you use the wrong machinery, it may have a negative effect on your benefits and work. In serious cases, accidents may occur The debate on excavators and wheel loaders has continued. Both machines are high-profile products in the construction machinery industry. They may be confused in terms of application or other aspects. The difference between excavators and loaders is that most excavators Using the backhoe, dig the dirt out of the ground. The difference between the wheel loader is the handling and loading and unloading of materials. In addition to soil, it can also carry other materials.

What is an Excavator

Excavator is also called digger, and excavators can be used for construction and construction activities on construction sites. Such as roads, bridges, buildings, breeding ponds, underground projects, etc. An excavator usually consists of a bucket, a boom digging bucket and an undercarriage. Because the excavator has to deal with a lot of dirt, the excavator is mainly powered by the hydraulic system, which makes the stick and bucket work together to excavate the dirt.

The physical difference between excavators and wheel loaders is that excavators can be larger in size, while wheel loaders are usually small or compact.

Types of Excavators

Excavators are mainly divided into two types, crawler and wheel. Many people think that excavators can only be used in large-scale projects. In the construction industry, due to rising labor costs, many industries are looking for substitutes. Mini excavator gradually began to replace labor. In terms of price, the price of mini excavator is the cheapest, and its performance is no worse than that of medium-sized excavators and large excavators.

The difference between wheel loaders and excavators

Through the above-mentioned differences between excavators and wheel loaders, we can distinguish the differences between the two. Although both are in the construction machinery industry, and even in some working environments, these two types of equipment can be seen together, but In terms of application, the difference is obvious. Excavators are mainly used to excavate large amounts of soil, and they are distinguished according to size and function.

Wheel loaders are distinguished by the rated loading rate and the capacity of the bucket, and are mainly used for handling and loading and unloading work.
