This excavation is common when working on a large location where an excavator removes layers of soil, sand, rocks, and various other debris, and relocates it to another location with the option of it being used as backfilling. When all the job has been completed, the land may also be graded.

This is due to the fact that the excavator alone may not have the power to cut through the rock as trying to do this will wreck the excavator. Instead, we use the rock hammer add-on which will break the rocks into smaller pieces.
