  • Home renovations/constructions are exciting projects that will help give you the ideal home you require. However, the project itself will often be taxing and require some very heavy lifting.

    It would be insanely difficult to go through with the remodel without the assistance of construction equipment. Manual work would take ages and the costs of construction would only pile up.

    If you’re wondering what type of machinery to employ, here’s a handy guide that will cover the essentials.

Bulldozer/excavator

Notes:

  • While a bulldozer might seem like an extreme choice for home renovations, it’s anything but. To make any major change to the layout of your home, or to add any more space, you’re going to want something that can move large amounts of soil and sand.
  • Some of the key functions include:
    • —   breaking-up and grading ground surfaces
    • —   digging holes for foundation, piping, fencing, and other support beams
    • —   removing sediments and debris
    • —   lifting and transporting heavy materials
  • Bulldozers are especially convenient because their tracks allow them to move effortlessly across just about any surface. You can count on it to work on the harshest terrain, and it can stay stable even on slippery surfaces. For breaking ground and grading, the bulldozer’s ripper attachment can prove to be extremely useful.
  • The only thing you have to watch out for is the state of the bulldozer’s parts. If the tracks aren’t in good condition, you shouldn’t even consider renting one.

Dump truck

Notes:

  • Remodeling your home is something that can turn out to be pretty messy. You’re pretty much guaranteed to have a huge amount of dirt and spare materials left over. This is where you might want the assistance of a dump truck.
  • No matter what the size of your project might be, you’ll need a dump truck. It can carry essential materials from one site to another, without much effort. Manually filling a hole in the ground with large quantities of soil would take a painfully long amount of time. A dump truck makes this task trivial and gives much better results.
  • Before choosing your desired dump truck, you’re going to want to decide on its capacity. A standard dump truck should be enough for most home renovation projects, but you can never be sure. For a larger house that will feature some drastic modifications, you should consider an articulated dump truck. It can be especially useful on rough terrain, or if you require long-distance transport.

Power generator

Notes:

  • Rarely will you need the full assistance of a power generator, but you can never be too safe when dealing with construction. While blackouts probably aren’t very common in your neighborhood, you need to take precautions.
  • Should a power out happen while you’re taking care of a crucial aspect of the remodeling, you could end up leaving part of your home vulnerable to the elements. Instead of risking it, have some spare power ready in the form of a generator, it will save you the trouble.
  • If you have several pieces of machinery that require a steady flow of electrical power, you could consider multiple generators. Even if a single generator fails, you would have a backup in case something goes wrong.

Forklift

Notes:

  • Construction work often requires transport of some very heavy materials that can’t be otherwise moved without the assistance of heavy machinery. This is why you’ll rarely see a construction site in Australia without at least several forklifts present.
  • During your home remodeling project, you’re going to want to employ at least one forklift. Luckily, you’re not going to find it difficult to find a heavy forklift for hire in Perth, as many construction contractors will have them available.
  • Everything from construction materials to debris will need to be cleared with a forklift. There are many different types of forklifts to choose from nowadays. If your project is relatively small in scope and you’re leaning towards eco-friendly construction, you could always hire an electric forklift to assist you.

Submersible pump and hose

Notes:

  • Construction work will likely go on for a while. Some days, you’re likely to run into lots of rain, snow, or even hail. This might make it more difficult to clear ground or work on certain elements of the project, but it shouldn’t cause too many delays. However, something has to take care of the water that will pool in any low area during construction.
  • You can always introduce a submersible pump to get rid of water, mud, and sludge from the construction site. It can push fluids to the surface and clear any drainage problems you might have. It’s a lot easier than manually taking care of mud during remodeling, as this can be a nightmare to deal with.
  • CONCLUSION Remodeling your home will most certainly require some heavy machinery. The trick is to know which ones to hire and how to utilize them properly. With the help of the right contractors for the job, you should be able to take care of the heavy lifting in the shortest amount of time possible.
