The Machines that the Builders Buy

The demand for machinery in the construction sector is characterized by a need for local back up in terms of technical support and availability of spare parts, guarantee of operation, and facilities for purchase or leasing.

Monday, May 15, 2017

An article in Revista Construir notes that among the machinery needed for regional infrastructure projects are "hydraulic excavators, front loaders, retro excavators, articulated trucks, motor graders, soil compactors, crushing plants, electric generators, trucks, wagons, trailers, steam rollers, asphalt distributors, milling machines, road reclaimers, sweepers and water tanks."

"... In addition, there are concrete plants, asphalt plants, mixers, crawlers with excavation shovels, generally 35 to 90 tonnes of operating weight, off-road dump trucks, either articulated or rigid, with load capacities of 30 up to 60 tonnes, bulldozers mounted on tracks with horse power from 300 to 450 hp, motor graders from 18 to 24 tonnes of operating weight, vibrating soil compactors, 10 to 16 tonnes operating weight and water irrigation trucks.

Construction company managers point out that it is important to have "... local support for the brand that is acquired, good technical support and availability of spare parts", besides a guarantee and financing.
