Choosing a Heavy Industrial Digger


Most major excavation jobs will need a heavy digger on the site, and if you’re hiring one, you want a reliable piece of equipment that will get the job completed on time, and at the best possible rate. Equipment breaking down or operating costs that are more than you anticipated are not something that you need, and knowing how to choose a heavy industrial digger can mean the difference between a successful or unsuccessful project. 


The typical setup is for a heavy digger to come with a bucket, and as these come in different sizes for different capacities, choosing the right size is clearly important. The amount of work you’ll be able to handle on a daily basis will be determined by the size of the excavating bucket, which then determines how long it takes to get the job done. In addition to the capacity of the digger, the actual size of the digger itself and its ability to easily maneuver are also considerations. You probably don’t want to cause a disruption to anyone in the vicinity of your worksite, which means choosing a digger that easily fits into the job site and can be maneuvered safely and easily is your best option. Being able to close down different traffic lanes as needed can help the workflow too.


Saving energy and getting the job finished ahead of schedule, or at least on time are probably both important to you, and today’s advanced diggers can help in both areas. You can save energy if you hire a digger that can be operated remotely, and you can also enjoy increased productivity with the ability of machines to communicate with other machines. Monitoring data while operating can also save energy, increase efficiency and improve productivity and today’s advanced diggers incorporate electronic intelligence allowing you to monitor just about anything. And of course, you don’t want to have to pay more in fuel costs than you need to, and today’s heavy diggers offer improved fuel efficiency. All of these advances in technology also mean that a digger tends to last longer and will get the job done without any mechanical issues.

Connectivity and Versatility

A quality automated coupler has two advantages; it lets you change attachments quickly and easily, and it also helps to reduce operating time. It means that one of the most important factors when choosing a heavy industrial digger is its attachment connection, and when choosing one, keep in mind that diggers don’t just carry out heavy digging.

Saving money, better fuel efficiency and a reduced operating time. If all that is important to you, along with the industry’s best rates, look no further than FSG Plant.
