Is a type of construction truck and machinery, also called a digger, sometimes abbreviated simply to a 360 (from 360-degree excavators), an engineering vehicle consisting of a backhoe and cab mounted on a pivot (a rotating platform) atop an undercarriage with tracks or wheels. Their design is a natural progression from the steam shovel. Excavators are used in several tasks on construction areas, such as: brush cutting (with hydraulic attachments), digging of trenches, holes, foundations, demolition, general grading (landscaping), heavy lift, mining and river dredging.

Excavators come in a wide variety of sizes and models, also could have special attachments for specific tasks. The smaller ones are called a compact or mini-excavator. They are wheeled or tracked vehicle with a back-fill blade and swing boom. The functions and movements of the machines are carried out by transferring hydraulic fluid. This makes a compact hydraulic excavator different from other construction equipment. Large ones are mostly used in mining. In the mining industry, heavy loads are carried continuously, this models are geared for non-stop performance with durability.
