When to use a Caterpillar loader
On a construction site, a loader is used for various purposes: this machine is primarily used to load and unload heavy loads and thus carry out handling activities.
In addition, thanks to its loader bucket with a capacity of up to more than one thousand liters, the Caterpillar loader is also very often used to backfill ditches or trenches, frequently dug on a construction site.
Finally, it is used to level the ground once the earthwork has been carried out.
The size of the loader is an important element of choice: on a private site, or on a small one, a Caterpillar mini loader should be preferred; their power can indeed go up to 74 horsepower and they are particularly manoeuvrable and efficient.
On Europe-Construction-Equipment.com, we offer around thirty used Caterpillar mini loaders for sale.
If you have to run a large job site, and your land is level, a Caterpillar track loader will be more suitable than a wheel loader; on the other hand, if you have to travel on the road it is preferable to favor a wheel loader.
