Heavy Equipment is broadly termed as vehicles that are specially designed for making construction tasks happen. The most frequent use for these vehicles is earthwork operations, tasks that involve moving a large amount of earth to level and grade an area to be ready for construction. Another use for heavy equipment includes using material handlers such as cranes to move large objects over a construction site. Heavy equipment has been used throughout the history of human civilization, some of the earliest accounts of this are from the ancient Roman civilization. This type of equipment has come a long way since then, through the advancement of mechanics and physics we can now move and create much larger projects.
