Construction is one of the top rank employments in the United States. From Roofing, Contractors, Builders, to Painters, and Ground layers, it is all related to Construction. Without any of these workers, we would not have any buildings or homes. Though, construction may be a good business to get into, or may be your considering contracting out your construction skills, there is one thing to keep in mind. Do you have the funding for equipment? Some contractors, primarily small contractors, decide to rent equipment. This is due to construction equipment being extremely expensive. Such as,
A Fork Lift, in used condition, can easily cost over $15,000.00. A Fork Lift is extremely valuable to a construction company, and also very necessary. A Fork Lift is a gardening or agricultural tool with a handle and usually three or four prongs. It is used for digging, lifting, and turning over the ground.
Most construction equipment companies own a Pipe Layer, which can cost over $50,000.00 in used condition. This item is also valuable to a construction company, maybe most important to a grounds layer. A Pipe Layer is the machinery used to install the pipes and connect them to other pipes or a system of pipes.
A construction company may also own backhoes, skid steers or dozers, which may cost over $19,000.00 in used condition. A Dozer or commonly referred to as a Bulldozer is a construction vehicle with tracks or large wheels and a wide blade used for moving debris.
Asphalt, Paving, and Concrete machinery, such as the Blaw-Knox may cost you well over $25,000.00 in used condition. The machine is used to transfer hot mixes of asphalt from the delivery truck to the paver, preventing contact, between the truck and paver.
Crawler excavators are also a commonly used piece of contruction equipment. These machines are among the fastest and most powerful for removing contruction debris.
When contruction companies are working in enclosed spaces or tight locations they use heavy duty compact excavators.
Some large construction companies, may even own a Crane, which may cost hundreds thousands of dollars, in used condition. A Crane is a large machine used to lift and move heavy objects by means of a hook attached to cables suspended from a supporting, usually movable, beam.
The above mentioned items are just a few of the items you may find on a construction site. However, construction ranges over such a broad category. Each appliance serves for a specific job or a variety of jobs. Nevertheless, these items may be expensive, but they get the job done.
