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.

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.
These are the five most common pieces of earthmoving equipment:
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.
