Excavator refers to the range of excavating equipment used in earth-moving projects from home landscaping to mine sites with sizes of the equipment designed to suit residential to commercial to industrial projects.
There are a number of processes and equipment options in an excavation project including trenching, land clearing and dewatering as some of the biggest issues. Excavator equipment has been designed for all these processes, many of which are now far more environmentally-aware in their approach due to pressure to have minimal impact on the surrounding environment as possible.
