Dushyant A. Deshmukh | Parag S. Mahatme

Abstract: Construction industry is one of the highly increasing industries in the world. The extent of construction in India has increased up to high level these days. Every construction work starts with earthmoving operations during its initial phase. Heavy construction equipment is routinely used in construction project that entail earthmoving operations. The utilization of excavating equipments reduces the reliance of the construction industry on intensive labor to a certain extent and generally increases construction productivity. The improper selection and use of excavator can cause excessive costs, time and injuries to labors. Time required for excavation work depends on the performance of equipment. There are various factors that can affect excavators performance and productivity. In this paper, we have studied literature and identified some of those factors. It is found that, understanding fundamentals of such factors is important role of construction manager for better excavating equipment performance.
