Difference between Small Earth Moving Equipment and Heavy Equipment

Primarily, small earth equipment is used for more confined job sites. This equipment provides better mobility to the drivers, especially when dealing with uneven ground. Typically, small earth moving equipment is used for minor digging, loading, and earthmoving jobs. For instance, a mini excavator qualifies as small earth equipment having a towing load of under 6 tons.

On the other hand, heavy equipment is designed to take up bigger jobs. For instance, digging for the base of a building is a well-suited job for a heavy-duty excavator. Likewise, heavy-duty equipment uses the hydraulic mode of power transmission in most cases.
