The reason we can have schools, hospitals, grocery stores, and almost every building in the United States is because of construction. Construction can be dated back to 3,500 to 2,500 BCE when the Megalithic Temples in Malta were created. Ever since then, our construction knowledge and technology has advanced to where we are today. There is now electric construction equipment that helps with the service time of the construction project and releases zero emission into the atmosphere. As we continue to advance, we are finding new ways to increase product and decrease time and harmful emissions to our world. Cratos Equipment is a company that is on the forefront of developing construction equipment that is safer, cleaner, and eco-responsible. There are essential components that are highly favored in completing a successful construction project and Cratos Equipment is here to help you find those components and make sure that your construction projects come out successful.
1. Embracing Technology
As we advance in the world of construction, the technology we use is a major part of the process. Currently, over 60% of power in America is from coal and natural gases. Diesel powered equipment has the benefit of being able to receive the fuel since it is easily transported, however, it is harmful to the atmosphere. If you want to be more eco-friendly and still have powerful equipment, embracing electric construction equipment or battery-powered construction equipment is essential. One of the main benefits of having electric or battery powered construction equipment is that is very little maintenance costs to operate and they release zero harmful emissions into the atmosphere.
One product is Cratos’ Sherpa mini skid steer. It is just as powerful as combustion engines and has zero fuel cost. It is great for indoor use, being able to fit through standard doors as well not having to worry about inhaling harmful toxins while doing work in a closed space. This is one example of how a construction project can be efficient and eco-friendly at the same time.
Construction projects take time. A lot of time. Sometimes more time than they should. Believe it or not, noise is something that construction workers must look out for in projects. Construction workers are exposed to hazardous noises all around them and that can cause efficiency to drop due to workers not being able to perform to their upmost ability. It also makes the construction project become more unsafe as the loud noises can cause damage to their ears. Electric/battery powered construction equipment helps worker protect themselves while working on the project. Electric/battery powered construction equipment make virtually no noise while they are operational, which is amazing for the construction workers. They can focus more on the task and not on the noises around them. This can raise efficiency in the construction project and keep the construction workers safe.
To construct a building, you need tools. To power tools, you need fuel. Fuel is not cheap. Fuel is needed to power most construction equipment. Fuel costs are top priority when it comes to construction projects. With battery powered and electric construction equipment, you have the benefit of no fuel costs. That is right, NO FUEL COSTS. With the fuel cost being low, that means that the maintenance of the machine is low. All of Cratos’ construction equipment is eco-friendly. One of Cratos’ product, the Sherpa mini skid steer, is fully electric and it is as powerful as a combustion construction equipment. Looking for construction equipment should not break the bank. Eco-friendly construction equipment can be an excellent choice.
