Material Handling Excavator or industrial excavator is a type of excavator used for handling materials or waste. It is characterized by an arm longer than that of an ordinary shovel, at the end of which is attached a grapple which allows objects to be gripped.
Handling excavators are mainly used in two sectors: the industrial sector (handling of scrap metal, wood, waste or even foodstuffs) and the port sector (dredging operations using a special bucket or loading / unloading of ships).
An industrial excavator can be stationary or mobile, on tracks or on tires. The machines on tires are equipped with stabilizers. The cab of material handling excavators is generally lifting: it can be raised to different heights to provide a greater field of vision for the operator. Some material handlers are equipped with an electric motor.
