Excavation and backfilling consists of the removal, loading, transport and compaction of materials from the cuts required in the construction plans of the project. The excavation process modifies the topography of an area through mechanical or manual means.
An excavation is a breach in the ground intended for construction. The excavation is carried out after the delimitation or activities of outlining, leveling and stakeout of the area. It is excavated to the depth and width required or detailed in the construction plans.
It is done with the support of machinery for this purpose, such as backhoe, hydraulic excavator, tractor, front loaders, rollers, motor graders. This activity is supported by the use of trucks, in the event that leftover material needs to be disposed of at the dump sites.
This type of excavation is frequently carried out for the foundation of roads, this activity also includes the cutting of slopes and the formation of ditches that will serve to drain surface runoff water.

On the surface, operators in the cabs of large mining equipment are often unable to see if another machine or vehicle is too close for safe operation. Detect helps mitigate this potential safety risk and can also be configured to provide valuable information about site conditions and other assets working in the area. Below ground, the continuous movement of equipment on a longwall surface can present risks to those in the work area.
Today’s construction operations are under increasing pressure to improve production levels while controlling costs and keeping the work environment as safe as possible. As with any major operation, the key to achieving these goals is an optimized equipment system.
This is where ESCO’s quality products can provide unmatched results in the industry we serve. ESCO products are trusted by customers around the world for their:
The Model HDP bucket provides a maximum capacity bucket for top-loading applications. It is a rugged, economical bucket that provides higher production with less maintenance and downtime.
The SXDP – Super Extreme Duty plate flange bucket was developed for the most severe, high wear applications. It includes all the features of the ESCO XDP bucket plus an extreme-duty wear package that provides more melt wear protection than any other ESCO construction excavator bucket.
There is the problem of leveling when performing earthworks with machinery. Until now, additional people (or survey crews) were involved in this process. Traditional construction methods are often costly, time-consuming and require specialization and high precision. Could it be simpler, more accurate and faster?
This process can be automated, simplified and shortened by using a laser technique that simplifies and speeds up the process at every stage. In this solution, the electronic laser sensor is installed on the excavator arm, which controls the height and slope of the excavation. The result is more accurate and faster. The MC-1D System Level is a ready-to-use, mobile assembly that can be assembled without any problems and can be transported by the machine operator immediately prior to grading and, once the work is completed, placed in a carrying case.
The rotating laser emits the laser beam invisible to the eye, but is received by the MC-1D sensor. The beam rotates around a vertical axis with a speed of several hundred rpm: it creates the horizontal or inclined plane (in one or two directions). This laser plane (which can be precisely configured on the laser control panel) becomes the reference plane for the sensor installed on the machine. The operator (while digging) observes the colored LED indications on the sensors. The LED indicators show the current position of the bucket in relation to the reference laser plane and give simple messages: “lower the backset or blade”, “raise the backset or blade”, “keep it at this level”. This information is also presented in the operator’s cab via the MC-RC1 System Level display.
