The U.S. construction market is one of the largest industries in the world. If you’re planning on breaking into this industry at any point in the future, it’s important that you are aware of some of the most used pieces of equipment.

Below, you'll find some heavy construction equipment that is essential for just about any major job.

Lowboy Trailers

The first lowboy trailer was invented back in the 1920s and featured solid rubber tires and a riveted gooseneck. These trailers are excellent for major construction jobs to easily and successfully transport other large construction machinery. These trailers offer two drops in deck height to allow both heavy and tall equipment like bulldozers and other industrial machines. You can find quality lowboy trailers for sale that will be ready to go as soon as you pit them up. If you're working in the construction industry and need to transport heavy items from site to site, check out lowboy trailers for sale and purchase these excellent times right away.


One of the most popular and important kinds of equipment for reaching high places and getting work completed up above for the 7.8 million production workers in the U.S. are telehandlers. Often called telescopic handlers, teleports, or boom lifts, these pieces of machinery are used throughout the construction and agricultural industry. Without quality telehandlers, it would be nearly impossible to perform difficult jobs atop high structures.

Sweep Trucks

Mechanical sweeper trucks have been around since the 1840s. In Manchester, England, these machines were crafted in order to clean up all the pollution left over from the world's first passenger rail service as well as the largest textile industry. These sweep trucks are not only great for cleaning up large construction sites, but they are also excellent for smoothing out areas prior to certain jobs.
