Engineering vehicles, known by the other terms: construction equipment, earth movers, heavy equipment or just plain equipment, are machines, specifically designed to execute civil engineering and construction engineering tasks.
The scope of the specialized manufacturing industries covered by the previously mentioned engineering fields is broad, encompassing in no order: construction, logging, mining, waste management, military engineering and agriculture.
These machines are most often associated with earthworks (engineering). These engineering vehicle machines, in the most basic form, are compound machines composed of simple machines.
These components make up the five equipment systems: implement, traction, structure, power train, control and information.
Through the mechanical advantage of a simple machine, the ratio between input force applied and force exerted is multiplied.
Currently most equipment use hydraulics as a primary source of transferring power. The use of heavy equipment has a long history.
Vitruvius a 1st century B.C. engineer gives detailed descriptions of Roman heavy equipment and Roman cranes in his treatise De Architectura
Build or demolish with our R/C Construction Trucks.
These super tough trucks come loaded with over-sized rubber tires that deliver excellent traction and a articulated suspension for a better turning radius.
The trucks also has working lights and a real claw digger and dumping bed.
They are full functional R/C's, pre-assembled and ready for use!
