Less powerful than the crawler excavator, the wheel excavator is however lighter and therefore faster. It can move easily from one job site to another.
Wheeled excavators are used on hard surfaces (gravel, concrete) and for small jobs. They are equipped with stabilizers or an anti-pitch system that prevents them from tipping over.
Before being fitted with tires, the excavators were mounted on trucks. The first “modern” hydraulic excavator was developed by the Poclain company in the 1950s.
