Wheel excavator Construction equipment

Wheeled excavators are able to dig up a large amount of soil in a short time. Unlike traditional crawler excavators, they are equipped with wheels instead of tracks. This allows the machine to move quickly and drive to projects via public roads. The best known wheeled excavator manufacturers are Doosan, Liebherr, CAT, Hitachi and Volvo. BAS World always has a wide range of wheeled excavators in stock.

What is a wheeled excavator suitable for?

Wheeled excavators are able to easily move through the use of wheels instead of tracks. This high maneuverability is ideal for the recycling and forestry industries. The wheels allow the machine to move quickly between landfills. A mobile crane can also be transported by road and can tow a trailer with equipment.


Many mobile cranes have hydraulic support legs and/or outrigger plates. This allows the machine to stabilize itself over a larger surface. At the same time, the soil can be leveled through the outrigger plates.

How much does a (used) wheeled excavator cost?

The price of a used wheeled excavator depends on several factors such as the number of operating hours, the year of manufacture and type. A heavy construction machine is worth more because it can handle heavier jobs. At BAS World you can purchase a mobile crane starting at €35,000. New wheeled excavators start at around €135,000.
