Heavy Equipment Repair Services Information

Heavy equipmentHeavy equipment repair services specialize in the repair and maintenance of heavy-duty machines and vehicles typically used in earth moving and construction applications. Equipment specially designed for executing construction tasks—most often machinery involving earth moving—is referred to as heavy equipment; this type of equipment is also known as earth movers, engineering vehicles, construction equipment, or just equipment. Implement, traction, structure, power train, control, and information are the five equipment systems that comprise heavy equipment. Heavy equipment repair service offers valuable service in all these systems.


Heavy equipment repair services offer services to different types of off-road and heavy equipment products. Examples include:

  • aerial work platforms
  • lift tables
  • air tracks
  • agricultural tractors
  • articulated trucks and haulers
  • asphalt plants and pavers
  • backhoes and backhoe loaders
  • boom trucks
  • bulldozers
  • cherry pickers
  • cold planers

Off-road and heavy equipment products also include combat engineering vehicles such as modified tanks and mine excavators, compact excavators and crawler carriers, portable concrete batch plants for on-site production, construction and mining tractors, construction and mining trucks, cranes, and cure rigs. In addition, suppliers may provide dragline excavators, dredging equipment, drilling machines, wheel excavators, bagger or digger excavators, and feller bunchers.

Heavy equipment repair services will typically pick up non-working components and parts from the location and return them as soon as they have been rebuilt or replaced at their full-service repair shops. Since there is competition in the heavy equipment repair services field, heavy equipment repair services offer excellent services in a timely manner. In addition, many of the heavy equipment repair services have a full service rebuild shop to service broken parts and components like engines, torque converters, and differentials.


Main areas where heavy equipment repair services offer their services are the earth moving and construction fields. Many heavy equipment repair services also offer field service only in certain states. The application of heavy equipment is on the rise, hence heavy equipment repair services will also incorporate better technologies and services to satiate the needs of prospective customers.
