These days there is no need for any construction job to go ahead without the proper excavation equipment. Many excavators or other kinds of machinery can be made to do several tasks with additional attachments. Backhoe buckets can easily be replaced with other backhoe attachments such as the backhoe debris fork that attaches to the bucket and doubles as a forklift.
Excavator attachments include such things as stump grinders or splitters to get rid of those stumps from your paddocks, brush cutters for clearing brush and stirrers for mixing solid aggregate or slurry. Buckets for excavators come in various sizes, making it easy to get just the right one for your excavator.
However, before buying attachments for your backhoe or excavator, make sure that it is attachment-ready. Most manufacturers claim their machinery will accept any kind of attachments made for them, but you may need to buy different couplers, hoses, control mounts and clamps, for such attachments may vary. No use getting out on the job and finding you need another trip to town to purchase the right clamps or control valves.
However, if you can purchase those attachments that do not require any additional device to ensure they work well, then you will save a great deal on the cost and the time spent in attaching them.
Having many additional attachments for your excavators or backhoes will ensure greater flexibility and enable you to do a great many more jobs. Thus much more contracting work will become available to you as a contractor.
Some attachments fit between the main vehicle and the additional tool, enabling it to work with greater flexibility, rather like a wrist provides to the arm. When such additions are quick to attach and fit they save a great deal of time and work for the operator, enabling him to remain on schedule with the job.
