Most Common Heavy Equipment Used in the Philippines

by Wave Construction Construction
The construction industry the Philippines is booming. But prices of construction equipment are steadily increasing, not only locally but around the globe. However, the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) reported that there will be zero price increase for construction equipment rental services in the Philippines. This is great news for those who would rather rent than buy. 

This also makes it attractive to those who want to get started in this line of business. If you’re somebody who wants to start a heavy equipment rental company, these are the top machinery types for you to invest in. 



Excavators are one of the most used heavy equipment in the construction industry due to its versality. It It can handle materials, demolish, dig holes, create foundations and trenches, and can also be used for mining, cutting asphalt, rough grading and moving heavy barriers.

Wheel Loaders


Wheel loaders are another versatile type of equipment to help you move materials around. Its basic tasks include carrying, loading, and stockpiling. But it can excavate earth as well to a limited degree. There are also attachments you can use to increase its utility like pallet forks, grapples, snow blades, and brooms.

Adding machine attachments makes wheel loaders more useful all year round.

Backhoe Loaders


Backhoe loaders are quite similar to tractors except that they have an adjustable shovel and a small bucket. Since they are tire mounted, they are best used in urbanized areas. 

Dump Trucks

Dump Truck

This is one of the most common and the most needed equipment in any construction site or mining quarry. Common dump trucks are used to move large quantities of materials from one place to another. 

Dump trucks are available in diverse sizes and specifications, depending on the need. 

If you are planning to rent heavy equipment and is still not sure about which types to rent, don’t be afraid to ask a reliable rental service for advice.
