When you need to remove accumulated sediment from the bottom or sides of a body…
I am often amazed at ingenuity of the human race. Heavy equipment like bulldozers, backhoes and graders can move huge amounts of dirt, yet they can do it with such precision. If you ever see a bulldozer in action, stop an watch. They can level an area of ground in no time at all, and I mean level.
Bulldozers can take the roughest surface and turn it into a clean flat top. Backhoes can dig a trench to an exact depth and in a perfectly straight line. Motor graders can take a rough surface and not only turn it into a smooth surface, it will have perfect camber to allow for water run-off.
These are just examples of what heavy equipment can do – and does do each and every day. Think about it though, how many workers over what period of time armed simply with shovels, mattocks, or rakes could achieve the same results? Would they achieve the same accuracy?
Heavy equipment gets a job done quickly, painlessly and accurately. Whilst they look like big toys, they are serious work horses.
