The thing that makes some construction companies faster and better than others is the type of machinery that they use. Back in the day, when a plot of ground needed to be dug up, it would take a few days of work and a lot of men with shovels to get the job done. Now, a backhoe or a tractor can knock out the same job in a few hours. Heavy-duty machinery can be very expensive, but construction contractors know the benefits are worth the cost.


Tractors are probably the most versatile piece of heavy machinery available to most people. They are used for construction, for farming, and just about any other task that needs a powerful engine. With the right equipment and attachments, tractors can adapt to many different needs, and this is very obvious in the setting of construction.

Tractors are often outfitted with a front loader and bucket that can dig into the ground and flatten out areas. The dirt it picks up can also be moved around, and even attachments can be added to crush and knock down walls. Construction companies are very blessed to have them as they can make hours of hard work into a few minutes of specialized tractor work.


Bulldozers are useful for more than just demolition. While it’s true that they are very good at being used to knock things over, they are also great for moving around and leveling ground. The beginning of any construction job calls for setting up the area. The bulldozer might make its first appearance by knocking over unwanted trees or other vegetation, or by pushing rocks out the way. Then, after a tractor has knocked up dirt and moved it around, the bulldozer can lower its blade and move the dirt around to be distributed evenly like a spatula.


If you want to build anything over a story, cranes make the job much easier. While they are not usually used on most homes if it can be avoided, they are absolutely necessary when building something tie like a skyscraper or any kind of building that reaches high above the ground. Cranes are actually a simple idea but making them effective and durable is an amazing feat. They use a counter-balance, and then, on an extended arm, something can be attached and then lifted up. For most construction projects, this can be useful by creating parts of a building on the ground where it’s easier to build, and then lift it up into place.

Construction is, by its nature, a very complex and time-consuming endeavor. Sure, you could throw up a house very quickly in a very rough way, but you would probably have problems. Maybe you forgot to seal the home correctly, so now you cannot keep the house warm. Maybe the piping was done too fast to make sure that there were no drips or leaks. However, in order to do the job right, you need machinery, and that machinery can get very expensive.

For many new construction companies, there is just not money available to purchase the newest in construction machinery. Often, they make enough to pay the workers and buy new equipment for the next job, as well as a meager profit. For these construction companies, it would be a dream come true to have all the newest machinery at their fingertips.

Many people don’t realize how much money it costs to get a tractor. Not only does a construction company worry about buying the tractor, they have figure in money for insurance, hiring someone to actually use it, set aside a budget for maintenance, and make sure that there is a spot set aside for proper storage. All of these for one simple tractor creates a very expensive payment. For many companies, they have enough jobs and profits to cover the benefits of paying for these machines.

Renting can be a great option for construction companies that just do not have the capital to buy such expensive machinery. A simple tractor alone can cost as much as $15,000. This is the kind of money that many starting companies or construction companies going through hard times simply cannot afford on their own. For this reason, they may take a few hundred dollars in order to have a tractor for a day to get that part of the work done. It is more costly per job than to just have a tractor, but eventually, when a company has grown, they can afford to buy one.
