Loaders and Excavators For Sale

Loaders and excavators are the machines to turn to when there is some heavy lifting to be done around the farm. These are some of the heaviest pieces of plant you will find and also some of the most expensive. The range of used loaders and excavators extends to dumpers, fork lifts, plant excavators, plant loaders, skidsteers, telehandlers, tractor-based loaders and loader attachments.

Plant loaders and excavators get involved when there is a need to roll the sleeves up and get stuck into some real work. They take care of heavy lifting duties, along with the digging of drainage channels and other excavation works. They are also on hand to load trailers and lift things into storage areas. There is a wide range of available sizes, from compact mini diggers, which are ideal for lighter work in confined spaces, to huge, heavy-duty machines that might be more applicable in the contract market.

Dumpers may be more familiar on the construction site, but they still have their uses around the farm. They are simple and effective machines that are adept at taking bulk loads and quickly transporting them and dumping them at the required site. Most are rear-wheel drive, which can take a bit of getting used to, but they are ideal for traversing rough ground and manoeuvring in tight spaces. The range of dumpers also includes dumper trailers, which are quite separate units with the ability to tip their loading platforms and dump their loads.

Skidsteers, meanwhile, are loader excavators that are defined by their steering mechanism. On a standard loader, tractor or excavator, two wheels (usually but not always the front ones) turn to allow the vehicle to change direction. On a skidsteer, however, all wheels are fixed and the vehicle turns by means of the differential speeds of the left and right wheels. This makes for a very hardy construction and it can also give the skidsteer an extremely tight turning circle.

The category of loaders and excavators also extends to lifting machines, principally fork lifts and telehandlers. Both of these machines have their advantages and offer excellent material-handling capabilities. The forklift is the more traditional lifting vehicle and lifts pallets, bales or other materials by way of its lifting forks. These slide under the object to be lifted and can be lifted, retracted or extended as required. They can be used indoors or out and come with forward-facing or side-mounted orientations. The telehandler differs in the layout of the vehicle, with the cab mounted to one side and an extending telescopic arm mounted amidships. The principle advantage of the telehandler is that of reach, with the boom able to extend far forward to place or lift loads from recessed areas or load an entire trailer from just one side.

Most farmers will be familiar with tractor-based loaders, where the loader unit is mounted usually to the front of the vehicle. This has the benefit of providing flexible loading and even excavating capabilities in a machine that can also be used for many other duties. There is also a huge range of loader attachments to suit almost any usage.

Selecting the right used loader or excavator can be a complex task, not least because of the variety of solutions on offer. Thought needs to be given to the appropriateness of each one, along with the weight limits and capacity of the plant. With such a major investment, a thorough inspection and test are essential and a warranty or service agreement should be considered.
