Loaders are often viewed as the carry of a project as they literally transport or load material from one vehicle or area to another form of machinery.
What this means in practical terms is that a loader will be able to lift and transport any form of material such as asphalt, demolition debris, dirt, logs, raw minerals, recycled material or rock and move it onto either conveyer belts, dump trucks or similar.
Loaders can also be known as bucket loader or front end loader, among other names, and is essentially an engineering tractor with a front mounted square wide bucket or scooper. There are also numerous attachments that can be applied to a loader such as forklifts or bale grapplers.
Loaders are not restricted to construction sites with many loader hire companies offering mini loaders ideal for small scale projects.
Loader hire companies are prevalent in Australia with demand being high in both cities and regional areas due to this style of equipment being applicable to both construction sites and farming. When deciding on the size of the loader you will require, take into account the longevity of the project, how many tons you will need to transport and how many people are working on the project.
