A crane is an example of heavy machinery. It is equipped with cables and pulleys that are used to lift and lower materials. They are mainly used in construction industries for manufacturing other heavy machineries. Cranes are controlled by an operator who travels with the crane or by infrared or radio control. The bulldozer is a powerful crawler with blade. They are powerful tractors fitted with powerful blade. Other types of heavy machinery includes the backhoe loader, combat engineering vehicle, road roller, drag line excavator, drilling machine, dump truck, excavator, feller buncher, forklift, forwarder, Fresno scraper, front loader, grader, harvester, paver, rock-truck, scraper, skid loader, skidder, and tractor.

The heavy machineries use various tools like the blade, the bucket, backhoe, hydraulics, power take-off, tracks, and wheels. The heavy machineries are applied in various fields like agriculture, civil engineering, combat engineering, construction, earthworks, excavations, forestry, mining and waste handling. Some of the most important global manufacturers of heavy machinery are Caterpillar Inc., Komatsu, CNH Global, Volvo construction equipment, Hitachi construction machinery, JCB, Daewoo, Thunderbird, Kubota, Deere & company, Ingersoll-Rand, and more.

I really hoped this opened your eyes to the potential dangers of using heavy machinery. Heavy machinery is no joke and proper safety training is vital for a healthy and safe work environment.
