In general, you will find that a cab of a demolition excavator will come with more elements designed to keep the operator safe than might be seen on standard models.

This is because of the threats posed by things such as falling masonry and stray rubble.

A full demo cage may be present on some units, while others will offer better rollover protection in order to ensure that any mishaps do not endanger the operator.

The body of a demolition excavator will also exhibit the signs of its specialist design, with models made more durable through the addition of plating on the underside to allow them to operate over rough, obstacle-strewn terrain without impediment or damage occurring.

Of course, this means that when buying a used demolition excavator, it pays to give the body an extensive examination from every angle because of the likelihood of wear and tear being generated in the line of duty.

In terms of reach, a demolition excavator can offer anything from around 10 metres to more than 30 metres, depending on the type of boom used.

Some booms adopt the gooseneck set-up, while others will be telescopic in order to achieved the desired operating height. And the hydraulic capabilities of the boom are seen elsewhere in the design of demolition excavators.

For example, it is common to see hydraulic tilting capabilities added to the cab, since most of the operator’s attention will be focused on things going on high above his head rather than immediately in front of or below as it is with all-purpose excavators.

Certain demolition excavators will come with hydraulically extendable undercarriage elements to provide better stability and improve the overall operating height.

You may even encounter convenient add-ons such as boom-mounted cameras to allow operators to use the equipment with precision even if they are working at the full extent that the length of the boom will allow.

Driver comfort in a demolition environment can be compromised by a number of conditions that are inherent to this type of work, which is why demolition excavators can offer advanced ventilation to deal with the harmful levels of dust in the surrounding air.

Working lights, beacons and in-cab displays for the camera feedback can also be encountered on this type of machinery.

So ensure that when you are buying a used demolition excavator you are picking a model that is well equipped for the work at hand; in many cases, a standard model will not be enough.
