Traxcavator for hire in Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney
Traxcavators, also known as tracked loaders, is a construction machine that combines the power of dozers and the capabilities of a loader or excavator. While not as popular in the 21st-century, traxcavators for hire were exceedingly popular in the early stages of construction machinery.
Traxcavators came to be when a business in the United States, Trackson Company, combined a tracked tractor body with a loader lift arms. This meant that the traxcavator could be used in place of a dozer, skid steer loader and excavator. The traxcavator has also had rippers installed at the back of the machine to break up dense soil. While the traxcavator isn’t as powerful as any of the machines listed, it is capable of getting the job done when hired.
Today, traxcavators for hire are often used as mini dozers on construction sites where using a full-size dozer is either not possible due to space and logistics or is simply not needed. Eastern Plant Hire regularly wet hire our traxcavators out to projects such as road repairs and house slabs.
