Earthmoving equipment consists of a family of tools used for various earthmoving tasks, such as excavating or relocating large compounds of dirt, clay, soil, debris, or rubble. Examples of earthmoving equipment include machines like the backhoe, bulldozer, excavator, steer loader, landscaper tractor, ride-on trencher, and articulating wheel loader.

Earthmoving tasks that require such machinery include trenching, backfilling, digging, and dumping. Ideally, you can use excavators for backfilling and digging and utilize bulldozers for grading or clearing site debris. While heavy-duty trenching tasks are ideal for a ride-on trencher, light trenching tasks over small areas require the maneuverability and finesse of a walk-behind trencher. We have many types of earthmoving equipment, suited for a variety of tasks. Check out the FAQs below to learn more.

More About Earthmoving Equipment

FAQs

How much does it cost to rent an earthmover?

The cost of earthmoving rental equipment depends on your job location and the type of machine you select. Prices can range from below $200 per day for a walk-behind trencher to nearly $1,000 per day for a heavy-duty excavator. Daily rates tend to drop significantly when you rent dirt movers by the week or month. For example, an articulating wheel loader that runs over $700 per day could cost about $2,000 per week or about $6,000 per month.

What are the most popular types of earthmoving equipment?

These are the five most common pieces of earthmoving equipment:

  • Excavators: Featuring a bucket on an arm and a rotating cab on movable tracks, this type of heavy equipment excels at a variety of jobs. Whether you need to dig a pool or break down walls in a demolition project, there are multiple types of excavators that may suit your needs.
  • Skid steer loaders: These relatively small, maneuverable dirt movers have hydraulic lifting arms on each side that attach to a variety of useful tools, including buckets, trenchers, and wheel saws. Skid steers come with either four wheels or two tracks.
  • Backhoe: Backhoe loaders make versatile landscaping and construction machines that can tackle a range of tasks — often at the same time. Available in multiple sizes, these multi-taskers turn quickly and feature both a bucket that can scoop and a digging arm that can excavate.
  • Bulldozers: Bulldozers can assist with digging, pushing, or leveling large quantities of materials such as soil, debris, or other loose materials.
  • Wheel loaders: A wheel loader, sometimes called a front-end loader, have large buckets in front of the tractor are designed to transport heavy materials such as dirt, rubble, or debris.

Which earthmover do I need for my project?

Which earthmover you need for your project depends on the specific task at hand as well as the size, terrain, and other characteristics of your work site. For a home landscaping project in a small backyard, a skid steer loader works best. On hilly areas and other uneven terrain, crawler excavators and crawler bulldozers provide balance and stability alongside heavy-duty power. Below we list the various available earthmoving equipment options for two common tasks:

  • For digging: Excavators and backhoes make good choices for many digging jobs. For smaller tasks and tighter spaces, mini excavators often fit the bill. If you’re looking to use a trencher, you can choose from various sizes of ride-on trenchers and walk-behind trenchers.
  • For transporting materials: Loaders — including wheel loaders, skid steer loaders, and skip loaders — work best for scooping materials and moving them to another location.
    Using their giant blade in front, bulldozers can push large quantities of materials from one place to another on large tracts of land.
