    Used construction equipment for sale

    The construction industry is ranked as one of the highest and most profitable businesses in North America. After experiencing a 3.1% growth over the past year it is showing no signs of slowing down. Behind this booming industry is a legion of resilient workers and a forceful fleet of heavy machines. Whether building bridges, paving roads, erecting buildings, or excavating mines, the true reason for the construction industries success is its efficient machinery. Modern technology is exponentially increasing both horsepower and manpower to allow for feats of construction equipment that were never possible before. With so many companies rapidly producing new products, it is no surprise that the used heavy equipment market can provide nearly brand new machines for businesses and individuals.

    The most popular construction equipment in North America are loaders made by Caterpillar. Loaders are a tractor unit most often fitted with a bucket attached by a hydraulic boom that allows the bucket to move up and down. These machines, sometimes called front loaders, are most commonly divided into two groups: skid steer loaders and wheel loaders. Skid steers are a smaller, lighter type of loaders that pride themselves on their maneuverability. Skid steers also occasionally come fitted with tracks instead of wheels, depending on the environment they will be used in. Wheel loaders are generally more powerful and are more easily able to be fitted with different attachments.

    In the world of heavy machinery, strength has always been the name of the game. The stronger something is, the faster a task can get done. Every section of the construction industry has their own beast that can easily dwarf humans and fellow machines alike. But more important than their size is their usefulness and efficiency. In the mining industry excavators are used to break, dip, and scoop the earth then dropped to be sorted or moved by other machines.The vast depth and swaths of quarries can make this an almost impossible task to be accomplished in one’s lifetime with an average excavator. To remedy that situation, a German company called Krupp built the Excavator 288. Not only is the 288 impressive in size for an excavator, it actually holds the record for the biggest land vehicle in the world. This elephantine excavator requires at least 5 people to operate it as it moves across Tagebau Hambach in Germany. Tackling a different side of the earthmoving industry are the big bulldozers. Dozers are fit with a “blade” on the front that allows the machine to move mounds of material. The bull with the most brawn is the Komatsu D575A-3SD. Already a powerhouse in the heavy equipment industry, Komatsu decided not only to build the largest production dozer, but the third largest machine overall. The D575A has a staggering operating weight of 153 tons and requires 8 semi-trucks to transport it to each site. When it comes to hauling materials, though, there is one monster machine that can handle more material than any of its close material-moving relatives. This tremendous truck is the Belaz 75710. The back of this Belaz is able to transport nearly 500 tons of material from one location to the next. It takes two MTU 65-litre, 16-cylinder, four stroke diesel engines with a combined 4,600 horsepower to get this dump truck rolling. It takes a set of staircases to get anywhere in this vehicle as it stands nearly three stories high.

    When there is progress being made in the world it is highly likely that construction is involved in the process. Take quick look any place in civilization and the effects of millions of machines can be clearly seen. Sectors of the construction industry include: residential housing, commercial buildings, transportation, industrial, power generation, fuel, waste management, and water. To accommodate so many demands, the heavy equipment industry in the United States averages over $41 billion each year in sales. In some industries, certain machines are more popular than others. For example, in commercial building, particularly when building taller structures, a crane will be used for its exceptional ability to move materials to stories that no other machines can come close to reaching. In the transportation sector the incredibly heavy, cylindrical drum rollers are used to compress and flatten asphalt in preparation for vehicles to travel on. While these two machines are largely confined to specific industries, some pieces of heavy machinery are utilized across multiple fields around the world. One example of a vehicle that is used diversely is the dump truck. With the simple task of moving heavy loads it would probably quicker to list what industry this load-bearing brute is not a part of. Most commonly, it can be seen on commercial construction grounds moving debris, at a quarry transporting the earth that has been dug up big excavators, or on the road moving materials such as dirt, sand, gravel, and waste.

    While there are hundreds of events around North America throughout the year that focus on different aspects of the construction industry, none are as popular or all-encompassing as CONEXPO-cON/aGG. This event takes place every three years in Las Vegas, Nevada and features the world's leading heavy equipment experts, displays, classes, and technologies. With over 2,500,000 square feet you will be able to visit exhibitors from the companies that you are most interested in in your field. The next CONEXPO-cON/aGG will take place March 10-14 in 2020.
